    I'm trying to work on a client login page for my webpage. I've seen the html code for programming the forms for user name and passwords and what not. But how do I do the server side/CGI side of it, so that it will process the information that is input? Am i supposed to contact the company that is hosting my site or what? Thanks.

    There's lots of ways to do it, but the usual two are -- *real* server-side authentication using .htaccess (on Apache or NCSA type webservers) or using CGI, which is not perfect, and needs fairly large scripts to do it properly.

    I would suggest you go to your hosts website and check their documentation for information on using server-side authentication. Or have a look around cgi.resourceindex.com for security applications, there are a few pretty good scripts there.
