How to create a HubSpot CMS login page?

Our everyday online presence is filled with using several accounts over various platforms, ranging from social networks to bank account profiles and various services; most require some sort of login confirmation. The same goes for your business pages, and many times it is better to have some sort of a sign-in form that users can fill out and gain access to your content.

There is nothing wrong with providing free access to your page, but this way you can’t see who actually sees your content and you certainly can’t use these visits and convert them into leads. Also, free access has all the content set on public, but there are times where some content should not be available to just about everyone. To fix this, you can allow login or a sign-in with password protection in your HubSpot pages and use this to your advantage. Read on to learn why and how you can do this.

Why login or password protection in HubSpot CMS?

Here we will be talking about HubSpot login, or more specifically, why you should think about installing a login page or a password protected page to your HubSpot website.

Password-protected HubSpot login page

This is a type of login protection in the HubSpot CMS that requires the user to enter a password so they will be granted access to the webpage. This is useful in several cases: as a page only for your staff where you can share internal materials with the people that have the password; in the case for registered clients, where people can have access to specific materials; or for example a page for partners or wholesalers that need more info about specific products or services that aren’t for everybody to see yet, as a sort of a temporary protection.

How to create a HubSpot password protection login page?

  • Select the page you want to add password protection in the HubSpot portal
  • Click the edit screen, and select the settings and go to the advanced options menu
  • Here you will find a control audience access, and you need to select the Private – Password required field
  • Enter the password you like, click save and publish, and you are all set, with the page in question now being password protected.

Note: this is not secure protection, there is no encryption involved, and the pages under this kind of HubSpot login should not contain any sensitive data. Pages with the HubSpot password protection are not allowed to be crawled by the search engines, so you need to have that in mind when you are adding password-protection login to a HubSpot page.

HubSpot login membership page

This kind of login into a HubSpot-hosted webpage necessitates the users to sign in by creating a username and password in order to gain access to the page in question. The main difference between a password-protected page and a HubSpot login membership page is that each user needs to create their own login name and password, instead of using a general password. This is very useful when doing sales and people need to register to gain access to specific offers, or granting access to a blog only to registered members.

How to create a HubSpot login membership page?

Creating a login membership page in HubSpot is just a wee bit more complex than creating a password-protected page that we’ve explained above. Read on as I explain how you can set this up, and if you are uncertain of anything, you can always ask us. This is a more complicated setup, as you can select from several options: control audience access to a page or a blog need a slightly different setup. The general setup is explained here.

  • Select the page you want to add a membership login in the HubSpot portal
  • Click the edit screen, and select the settings and go to the advanced options menu
  • Here you will find a control audience access, and you need to select the Private – Registration required field.
    • To use this feature for protecting blog content, you need to enter in the settings menu in the HubSpot account, select the blog you want to customize, and click on the checkbox that says This is a private blog – registration required, and select the lists of contacts that can get access.
  • Click on update or publish the page and an email will be sent to the contacts that haven’t registered yet.

Note: once contact is registered to the site, they can see any private content set by the page admins. This is also not encrypted protection, and should not be used to store sensitive data.

What we’ve learned

The HubSpot platform is very versatile in its services, and as such, it has some amazing features. Among these, there is the control audience access that allows you to create a password-protected login or a HubSpot login/membership. This enables you to have content accessible only to certain people that have the set password (in password-protected login in HubSpot) or give access to specific content to a preset list of members that have their own login and password (in HubSpot membership login).

I’ve explained the basic setup on both instances, but for any more info, you can call or write to us, as we have a team of experts that is happy to help with any HubSpot-related issue you may have.
