A password-protected directory or area is a folder that may be accessed only when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized people may see its content. This function can be used for the main folder of a certain website or just for a specific subfolder in accordance with the needs you have. For example, if you are building a new website and you do not want people to see it before it's completely ready, you should restrict the access to it entirely, while if you need only some people to be able to access specific files, you could password-protect only a particular folder, while the remainder of the Internet site can be seen by everybody. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor inputs are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file will not work given that any folder above it is password-protected.
