A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people could view its content. This feature can be used for the primary folder of a specific website or only for a specific subfolder in accordance with your preferences. For example, if you are creating a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completely ready, you have to limit the access to it as a whole, and if you want only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you are able to password-protect only a particular folder, while the rest of the website could be seen by anyone. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear when the login details the visitor inputs aren't right. Even a direct link to a file won't work as long as any folder above it is password-protected.
