A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed only when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized individuals may observe its content. This feature may be used for the main folder of a specific Internet site or only for a certain subfolder depending on your preferences. As an illustration, when you are developing a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completely ready, you need to restrict the access to it entirely, and if you want only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you can password-protect only a specific folder, while the remainder of the Internet site can be seen by everybody. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor enters aren't correct. Even a direct link to a file won't work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
