A password-protected directory or area is a folder that can be accessed only when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized individuals can see its content. This function can be used for the primary folder of a given Internet site or exclusively for a particular subfolder based on your preferences. For example, if you are developing a new site and you don't want people to see it before it is ready, you should restrict the access to it altogether, while if you would like only some individuals to be able to access particular files, you could password-protect only a particular folder, while the remainder of the website can be seen by anyone. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor inputs aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file won't work as long as any folder above it is password-protected.
