A password-protected directory or area is a folder that may be accessed only when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized individuals can view its content. This option could be used for the primary folder of a specific site or only for a specific subfolder in accordance with the needs you have. For example, when you are building a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you need to prohibit the access to it entirely, whereas if you need only some people to be able to access particular files, you can password-protect only a certain folder, while the rest of the Internet site can be seen by everyone. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor inputs aren't correct. Even a direct link to a file won't work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
