A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This can be an entire site or only a single page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username and also a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you will see a note that you aren't authorized to look at the content. When this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

You won't have to do anything complicated - you will have to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be protected, and then to type the login name and password that will be used to access that folder.
