    Hello there. I want to create a website that will require the visitor to signup or login to their account. For example, www.followshows.com. That is a perfect example of a something I need. Just a landing page, then when someone logs in, they can access the site.

    I know a lot of people recommend using wordpress plugins, which I have no problem doing, but I dont want people to have access to back-end stuff. I need something for a lot of users, probably hundreds to start.

    Can anyone help me out? Any php scripts or CMS or anything like that? I have a hosting account with HostGator. I would prefer not to pay for it if possible :)



    Thank you

    Most any Register/Login script you select from the many freely available via Google Search will want to use an SQL database. Just make sure that HostGator give you php and mysql access... If you are currently not into php and MySql, now is the time to get into a great learning curve, which will greatly enhance your website building prowess:)

    What you may need is a website where you can have a master password for the web page you want your members to have access to. Then you can change the pass word ever month for your subscribers. Or you can create a login for subscriber to your website.[advertizing removed by mod]
