    What tools are you using for building your website [and yes, it doesn't go here - I'm sure one of the moderators will move it to some better place, such as general discussion].

    If you have mySQL as part of your system, you could just create a table of usernames and passwords [encrypted if you need some more security].

    Otherwise, you will have to create a file and check it against usernames.

    Either way, you will need to use some host-scripting tools such as PHP.

    Do you have any idea on how to actually begin this, what if I am using freewebs? Is there any way to make it, or can you help me make one?

    PS: This is something I have never done.

    You need to learn server side scripting to be able to do this! So please learn that first

    You'd have to use a webserver like apache to parse php files. http://www.apache.org/
    PHP: http://www.php.net/downloads.php#v5

    Or if you don't want to mess with the configuration, use a package like xampp or wamp.

    Since you already have a website (you said above), you already have a web server set up!
    Just learn a few simple php programs, from the site, then save them in .php file, and put this file on server, access it from browser, it will work.

    Ahh so for example I would do something like this

    <A href = 'www.freewebs.com/mywebsite/login.php'>login</A>

    would that be how to do it?

    and in the php file i would have for example

    <html>
    <body>

    <?php
    echo "hello";

    ?>

    </body>
    </html>

    that may not work i just made it out of my heaD BUT you get it right ?
