    Default Passwording a page

    There should be a simple password protected page feature that people can access a page only if they have the password. Not a user signup and choose a password that is there now but just a secure page as mentioned. This would be very useful for an organization that wants to give their members access to a "Members only" page within a public site.

    This is very easy to do using an .htaccess file. Most hosts provide for password protecting pages through their control panels (which makes creating a .htaccess file automatic).

    Hi there,

    The most frequently used is cPanel on Unix servers.
    With .htaccess you can also block certain IPs from visiting your web site.

    Here is a sample of how the .htaccess file blocking specific IPs looks like

    <Files 403.shtml>
    order allow,deny
    allow from all
    </Files>

    deny from xx.xx.xxx.x - xx.xx.xxx.x
    deny from xx.xx.xxx.xxx
    deny from xxx.xxx.xxx.x/xx
    deny from xxx.xxx.
    deny from xx.xx.

    <Limit GET HEAD POST>
    order allow,deny
    allow from all
    </LIMIT>

    The .htaccess file must be uploaded to the root directory.

    Believe me, there is information (patents, copyrights and the likes) which some top people (web site owners) do not want to be seen in x, y, z countries.

    Hi Since , would you know indicate how you should place a range of IP correctly? I ask because I'm afraid to block the Ips of real users. Thanks in advance
    Thanks Alot

    Hi there,

    Look at xx.xx.xxx.x - xx.xx.xxx.x
    What do you think it does?


    Same for xxx.xxx.xxx.x/xx

    xxx.xxx. blocks all IPs with numbers that start with xxx.xxx.

    Go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/

    and play with the numbers in the .htaccess file.
    You shall soon figure it out how it behaves.
