A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized people can view its content. This feature can be used for the main folder of a certain Internet site or only for a specific subfolder based upon your requirements. As an example, when you are creating a new website and you don't want people to see it before it is completely ready, you should prohibit the access to it completely, while if you want only some people to be able to access particular files, you are able to password-protect only a certain folder, while the remaining portion of the Internet site may be seen by everyone. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor types in are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file shall not work provided any folder above it is password-protected.
