Password Protected Pages

Although most of your Web site is usually open to everybody, you can "hide" selected areas of the site behind passwords.

Here are some of the benefits:

  • Increase passive income: Your private area could be open to "members only", for a subscription fee.
  • Add value to clients: You can give out passwords to clients, for access to additional material. For example, professional speakers can give out passwords to audiences for supplementary material after their presentation.
  • Deliver private information: You can deliver client-specific information by uploading it to your Web site.
  • Leverage your intellectual property: Instead of making everything public, you can make selected information private.
  • Adminstrative support: When somebody books you, you can give them a password to download your contract material - such as terms and conditions, fee schedule, speaking introduction, and room layout instructions.
  • Marketing value: When you meet somebody at a networking function, you could give them your business card and a password to download, say, an e-book from your Web site, so that they have a good reason to visit it.

What's in our system?

  • You can have two separate password-protected areas of the site - for example, a "Gold" and "Platinum" level of access.
  • For each, you can set up as many passwords as you wish, so that you can increase perceived value to clients by giving them their own password.
  • You can add, change and delete the passwords at any time - for example, to give certain people access for a limited time only.
  • You can password-protect any page of your site at any time.

How does it work?

You create the password-protected pages as you would create any other page on your Web site. Then, to protect them, your administration area has a Member Permissions page where you can select which pages are public and which are protected:

You can then create as many different "accounts" as you wish, each with its own user name and password, and link them to either of your two password-protected areas.

On the public side of the site, your site visitors will see a link on the right-hand side of the site:

This takes them to a login page, where they have to type their user name and password to continue:
