    You need to learn what server the site is hosted on. Also, which company, probably a free one, but some pay ones simplify this for you.

    There's something called .htaccess which is just a file that you can edit and upload and allows you to set permissions on FILES n' Folders.

    Find Apache, it's server software and I believe it's FREE and meant to run on LINUX. That should give you all the info you need create a LINUX server - and it should have plenty of help and advice on how to create PROTECTED files n' folders...

    Here it is, I founded it..

    http://www.apache.org/
    http://httpd.apache.org/

    YAy..

    Goodluck girlfriend.

    There's a page from my ISP that explains how to do it. It should be universal across all *nix servers.

    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/howto/a...ml#basicconfig

    or like I said with .htaccess files

    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/howto/htaccess.html




    If you have access to administration capabilities the password protection is explained in the top link. If your not an admin or cannot contact one then the other link is used.

    Here's somemore .htaccess links
    http://faq.clever.net/htaccess.htm
    http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/htaccess.shtml
    http://www.he.net/info/htaccess/demo.html

    If you need more help, ask.

    Thanks boys

    well if you use a free service i would suggest brinkster..


    you can do this using ASP or PHP ...
    you need to hava an access database.. and an ASP file chich asks for the username adn password.. if it matches a cookie is writeen to the host machine and when serving each page the cookie is checked.. i have done this for my home page...
