A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed only if a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized individuals could see its content. This function could be used for the primary folder of a certain site or just for a certain subfolder depending on your needs. As an example, when you are developing a new site and you don't want people to see it before it is completely ready, you have to limit the access to it as a whole, while if you want only some people to be able to access particular files, you are able to password-protect only a particular folder, while the remainder of the Internet site may be seen by everybody. In any case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor types in aren't right. Even a direct link to a file will not work provided any folder above it is password-protected.
