You can password protect pages that you don't want to be viewed by the public. Follow these steps to password protect individual pages:

  1. Click Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.




  2. Go to the page you'd like to password protect.


  3. Click Page Settings in the top toolbar. Select Advanced Settings from the drop down. Then, enter a password for the page.




  4. Save and Publish the page and it will be password protected.


Warning: Search engines can't crawl any web page that is password protected. Your website may be penalized by ranking lower in search.

Hope that helps!

I HAVE AN ANSWER!!!! The instructions above forgot to mention that you first have to go to Background, Links and Footer (right above Advanced Settings) and select "Set for this page only). Once you click that, you will see the option that says "Password Protect This Page" under Advanced Settings.

Hope this helps you!
