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
- Deliver private information: You can deliver client-specific
information by uploading it to your Web site.
- Leverage your intellectual property: Instead of making everything

- 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.

- 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:
