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 people can see its content. This function may be used for the main folder of a particular site or exclusively for a specific subfolder depending on your requirements. For example, if you are building a new site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being ready, you should limit the access to it completely, whereas if you need only some individuals to be able to access specific files, you can password-protect only a particular folder, while the remainder of the website may be seen by everyone. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor inputs are not right. Even a direct link to a file won't work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
