Have you ever wanted an easy way to password protect a download page or make an easy member site?
I’ve had a few people ask me how I’m protecting my Internet Marketing Bootcamp pages, so I thought I’d do a quick blog post on it.
If you’ve taken my Bootcamp you know that each day for 22 days I send an email with a link to watch that day’s tutorial videos.
The email includes a username and password to access.
I didn’t want to create a fancy membership site for the bootcamp, I wanted to keep it simple. So I used a PHP script that literally takes about 1 minute to setup.
The script is located at PHPBuddy.com
All you do is upload one file to the folder where you’re protecting the files, and then use a php include in the files you wish to protect.
The link above will tell you how to set it up, so no sense in me repeating it.
Yes, there are a lot of ways to protect pages with usernames and passwords, but I like this for its simplicity. Obviously I’m not saying the code is hack proof, or that you use this code to protect anything really sensitive.
But if you need some simple and fast protection… it’s a good solution.
