Adding Password Protection to Website Builder

NOTE: This article is for Website Builder version 6. Your version displays at the top of the screen when you log in to your Website Builder account. Using version 7? See Website Builder v7 Categories.

If you want to require your visitors to enter a user name and password before they enter your website, Website Builder lets you add password protection.

You can password protect individual pages with different user names and passwords, use the same user name and password for one or more pages, or choose to disable previously set password protection.

NOTE: You can password protect any page with the exception of .mobi pages, your Home page, and Flash® introductions.

Adding Password Protection

You can add password protection so visitors must enter user names and passwords to enter your website or view Web pages.

  2. If you are working in the Page Designer, click Exit Designer.

  4. Select one of the following:
    • Do not protect pages — Removes password protection if you added it.
    • Apply a different user name and password for each selected page — Requires visitors to enter specific login credentials for each page of your website.

  5. If applicable, select the pages to password protect, and then complete the User Name and Password fields.
  6. Click OK. Password protection is added.
