A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed only if a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people may look at its content. This function may be used for the primary folder of a certain Internet site or only for a particular subfolder based on your requirements. As an illustration, if you are building a new site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you might want to limit the access to it altogether, and if you would like only some individuals to be able to access particular files, you can password-protect only a certain folder, while the rest of the website may be seen by anyone. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor types in aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file won't work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
