   Apache FAQ > G. Authentication and Access Restrictions
Question:  How do I set up Apache to allow access to certain documents only if a site is either a local site or the user supplies a password and username?
Answer:

Use the Satisfy directive, in particular the Satisfy Any directive, to require that only one of the access restrictions be met. For example, adding the following configuration to a .htaccess or server configuration file would restrict access to people who either are accessing the site from a host under domain.com or who can supply a valid username and password:

Deny from all
Allow from .domain.com
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/conf/htpasswd.users
AuthName "special directory"
Require valid-user
Satisfy any

See the user authentication question and the mod_access module for details on how the above directives work.
