Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is it posible to protect a website if the site was called by a given domain name?

e.g.

www.domain.com -> no password protection
www.domain.net -> password protection

Both of the URLs are routed to the same document root.

If you have multiple virtualhosts, you can add password protection to one and not the other via the following directive:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /www/example1
ServerName www.example1.com
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /www/example1
ServerName www.example1.org
<Directory "/www/example1">
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Protected Site"
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/passwd
Require user joeuser
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Here is more information on this:
