Authentication Software



I would like to issue a username and password to members who I invite to view my site. Do you buy software for this type of Authentication page? Which software product is good?
Thanks for the help,


You may try Apache for this kind of things. Read on .htaccess and Auth* settings.


Thanks Oxygen,
I poked around the site as you suggested.
I would be better off (because of my skill level) to get a commerical software package. NeedSecure costs $29 and they install it free. I should have been more specific and asked if anyone uses a good commercial packages.
Thanks again,


Thanks Bobs
