A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized individuals can view its content. This feature can be used for the primary folder of a certain Internet site or only for a certain subfolder based upon your needs. For instance, if you are building a new site and you don't want people to see it before it is completely ready, you should prohibit the access to it completely, and if you would like only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you are able to password-protect only a certain folder, while the remaining portion of the site could be seen by anyone. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear when the login details the visitor types in are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file will not work provided any folder above it is password-protected.
