This may be an entire Internet site or only a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username and also a password. In case you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional.

The option is very effective if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
