Web hosting provider, EasyCGI offers a form-based password protection

EasyCGI web hosting provider announced that they now provide a form-based password protection for all Windows 2008 products hosting.

This option enables customizable forms authentication for any website, providing greater online security. The Windows Server 2008 password protection is offered as a free option for customers.

Customizable forms authentication enables users to selectively restrict access to particular areas. When an unauthenticated visitor lands on a restricted page, they are automatically re-directed to a login form or a registration page.

Password protection is an important feature when it comes to administration pages, image gallery, account page and other online applications and resources. Easy GGI says the solution enables developers to customize their own forms authentication solution.

Microsoft’s Windows Server version 2008 with IIS 7.0 offers a more easily configured forms authentication model than older versions. It can be configured at any level of a customer’s website, protecting any type of resource from unauthorized access, without making any changes to the site’s existing content. This advanced solution can be easily administered in the customer’s Easy CGI hosting control panel.

“This provides an optimal, flexible development environment for our customers, which has always been a priority for us,” says Easy CGI president Dan Richfield. “Where many other providers still only offer solutions with no method of customization, and often cannot secure all content equally, Easy CGI offers a cutting-edge, fully customizable Forms Authentication solution for all of its Windows 2008 customers.”
