A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed only when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized individuals can look at its content. This option can be used for the primary folder of a specific website or just for a particular subfolder in accordance with your needs. For instance, if you are creating a new website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you should limit the access to it altogether, and if you would like only some people to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the remaining portion of the Internet site may be seen by everyone. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor inputs aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file will not work given that any folder above it is password-protected.
