A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people may check out its content. This option could be used for the primary folder of a specific site or just for a specific subfolder based upon the needs you have. For instance, if you are developing a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is 100% ready, you might want to restrict the access to it as a whole, whereas if you would like only some people to be able to access certain files, you'll be able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the remainder of the website can be seen by anyone. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor inputs are not correct. Even a direct link to a file won't work as long as any folder above it is password-protected.
