Password on website

Threaded View
I am setting up a family history website and wish to
put a password on it so that only members of my family
can view it.  I know some very basic html but don't know
how to add a password box.  Is it not possible to do this
in html?  Am I right in thinking that a password routine
would have to be on a server somewhere beyond view?
How do I go about password protecting my website?

If that's too complex for you all you need to do is to simply put the
'family only' files into a separate folder on your website and only tell
your family members the full URL.

For example if your base website is the
family URL could be or whatever

Not absolutely secure, but unless the information is top-secret it's an
easy way to achieve what you want.

Re: Password on website

and if you got a php webspace it's very easy to write a secure login
script, otherwise, just code a javascript which fills in a password in a
url, like
private/password.htm, but this option is as good as the one steve told you.
