    php can actually do proper HTTP Basic Authentication by sending the page format header etc and popping up the proper browser specified logon box which you can check in a script. the beauty of it is that the only way yuou can get the password is by getting ftp or shell access to the server as it is not shown in any way on the end users page.

    I use IIS 5.0 which allows me to password a site as you require (as any webserver worth it's crust should), and host my own site at home using Dynamic DNS for name service. I have an 256KBPS/64KBPS ADSL conneciton so it isn't too bad, over a modem would be fairly crap! If you like I can host a site for you. I'm moving soon so I'll be off the air until at least the end of Feb, but when I come back I should have a have a very tasty 1.5MBPS/256KBPS ADSL link!!

    I'wouldn't touch Tel$tra with a 10 foot barge pole. I'm going with Netspace most likely. $200 per month for a 1.5MBPS/256KBPS connection with 15GB download and $0.09 for overdata. Which is still a ****eload of money, but the equal Tel$tra account is $446 a month with 10GB download and nearly $0.19 per meg for overdata!!

    I forgot to mention that I have been hosting 4 sites on my existing FREE:D :D :D 256KBPS/64KBPS for nearly 12 months with at least 98% uptime. The other reason I'm going with Netspace is I worked there for three months and know the guys there actually have half an idea on what they're on about.

    if you have a decent internet connection (i.e DSL w/static IP, or cable) you could just use IIS with Win2k server. If you don't have a good connection you can still use IIS just use one of the dynamic DNS sites to direct to your server. With IIS you password protect very easily. JMHO

    That's what I have been doing. I'm using IIS 5.0 to host my sites.

    Apache is much much much more reliable/secure than IIS though.
