    Hi
    I know I brought this up before but cant find the postings. Anyway, I want too put a secure area on my site for people to access using a password.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of any software/site that can offer the service.

    regards
    John

    I just signed up with authpro.com - They have a free program and one for $4.95 a month. But I'm sure there are other free scripts out there too. But they work really well for me.

    The best way to go about this is through your hosting company. Lots of them will provide a secure area for your website and will allow password protection of directories.

    If your host doesn't do this for you then try another host. I suggest www.cedant.com and use them for most of my sites.

    If you can use .htaccess and cgi then I recommend Locked Area Lite

    It's available free [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] and does an excellent job on my sites...

    Hope it helps,
    Mark
