paywall

Paywalls are systems designed to monetize online and other digital information by preventing visitors from accessing web sites and similar content providers without having a paid subscription.  Online news and sports web sites are the most frequent users of paywalls, with some sites implementing hard paywalls while others deploy soft paywalls.

A hard paywall's content restrictions are much more stringent than a soft paywall, allowing either no access or minimal access to free content.  A soft paywall, on the other hand, provides significant access to free content as a means of encouraging users to subscribe for access to premium content.
