A password-protected directory or area is a folder which may be accessed when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized individuals could look at its content. This function may be used for the primary folder of a particular Internet site or only for a particular subfolder depending on your requirements. For example, when you are creating a new site and you don't want people to see it before it's completely ready, you may want to prohibit the access to it entirely, while if you want only some individuals to be able to access specific files, you'll be able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the rest of the Internet site may be seen by everyone. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor inputs aren't correct. Even a direct link to a file won't work if any folder above it is password-protected.
