Website design question? I have built many small and cheep websites and have had to mostly learn as I go. I built one with yahoo site builder and that was the easiest. My question is on how to build not just a password protected site bit also with forms to sign up with user names and passwords. I need them to also pay for access with credit card etc. I would pay for a person to build it but I'd love to know how to do it my self. I had a great time building mine and am happy with it. I know a little about html coding and iframes. Any pointers are greatly appreciated. Thanks. Use Ultimate Web Builder. It has a built-in members access app where you can create a sign up form for members and groups, and control which pages are open to which members/groups. It is very easy to use - no experience necessary. Source(s): Ultimate Web Builder - http://www.redesigns.org/web-builder To build a forum type of service from scratch you'll have to use either PHP & MySQL or ASP.NET (VB.NET or C#) and SQL Server 2008. If your web building knowledge is limited to simple sites and using tools like Yahoo Sitebuilder then a project like this will be beyond your ability at this time. You have a lot to learn still before you try this. If this is something for you personally you better have something really great to offer people who pay for access or your venture will be very short lived.

I emailed a developer I worked with and he recommended that as the easiest solution. I'll give you the address so I guess you can give it a wing if you like in the source. Hope that helps dude!
