A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only if a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized people may view its content. This function could be used for the primary folder of a certain website or only for a specific subfolder depending on your needs. As an example, if you are creating a new website and you do not want people to see it before it's ready, you need to prohibit the access to it altogether, and if you would like only some individuals to be able to access particular files, you can password-protect only a specific folder, while the other parts of the site can be seen by everybody. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor inputs are not correct. Even a direct link to a file won't work provided any folder above it is password-protected.
