How to password protect your website using STORM

STORM allows you to protect your website with a password so that users are unable to view the site without first entering log in details. This is useful if you want to restrict access prior to going live with a project or to stop search engines from indexing your website.

First you need to log into STORM.

Once logged into STORM, you will be taken to the STORM dashboard.

You will need to have set up your website in STORM before you can enable password protection. Please see our Setting up a website guide with details on how to do this.

From the STORM dashboard click on Websites.

On this page you will see a list of Websites that you currently have set up on your Nimbus server.

Click the cog icon next to your website to manage the settings for this specific site.

Click on Configuration.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Enable in the Password Protection section. This will turn on password protection so that when you visit the website you will be prompted for log in details. Once enabled these details will be displayed in the Password Protection section at the bottom of the page.

When enabled you can also manually specify the username and password used for the authentication
