A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized people may look at its content. This option can be used for the primary folder of a given site or exclusively for a specific subfolder in accordance with your preferences. For instance, when you are developing a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you need to limit the access to it completely, and if you would like only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you can password-protect only a specific folder, while the remaining portion of the site could be seen by anyone. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor types in are not right. Even a direct link to a file will not work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
