A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed only when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized people can view its content. This feature may be used for the primary folder of a given site or exclusively for a certain subfolder in accordance with the needs you have. For instance, when you are creating a new website and you do not want people to see it before it is ready, you should limit the access to it entirely, and if you would like only some people to be able to access particular files, you'll be able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the rest of the Internet site can be seen by everybody. In any case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear when the login details the visitor enters are not right. Even a direct link to a file won't work given that any folder above it is password-protected.

The protection shall take effect instantaneously, so if you try to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you will need to input the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login details with everyone. Each password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this sort of folders in no time.
