December 15th, 2011

Not all information you have on your site is intended for the entire online community. Webnode offers a simple and effective solution for this – Password protection! Lock your selected web pages to all but your chosen users with a few easy clicks. Take a look at some ideas on how to fully utilize this feature.

Create a Client Zone

Create a client zone where you give information undisclosed to regular visitors. Grab their attention with special offers you publish exclusively. As Mr. Lesonický, a cosmetics distributor, confirms, “I announce special offers, bonuses and other benefits to particular clients so my customers feel special and return regularly.” A client zone is also perfect for anything confidential: private forums, questionnaires, videos, etc.

Hide Personal Info

A photograph of a person is always personal information, especially child photos are commonly advised to be kept private. Photographer Mr. Sedláčková says, “Except those taken of my family, my photos are available to all. I chose Webnode also because of this feature. My family is what’s most important to me, and password protection allows selected access to those I truly trust. ”

Store Data

Schools, educational centers, and individuals can use password protection for storing test materials as well as for disclosing material which may raise a question of copyright infringement. “At our company we password protect pages containing contracts, templates, forms, manuals and other documents, all shared with a dozen external collaborators,” says Mr. Jelinek, from a tax consulting firm. “It facilitates our job and saves us time which we can devote to our clients,” he adds.
