    Forums and passwords

    I'm wanting to add a forum to my existing website and a place on the site that is locked to most traffic where only a few can get to it. How would the best way to go about this? I have Dreamweaver and fireworks mx, but my scripting and HTML knowlege is a little light at the moment. (Although I'm learning ;-) ever so slowly...)
    Any suggestions? I would greatly apperciate the help.
    Thanks

    Does your website have any server side scripting support? Maybe cgi ?

    Right now I have it setting in the "free" section at geocities. I am reviewing different options on where to put my site, right now I'm leaning towards just having geocities host it at like 12 dollars a month. (That is unless I can find a better alternative.) I'm new to the hosting gig so I'm not exactly sure if they do have that.
    How can I find out? just email the company?

    I just checked the geocities site. One of the plans (http://webhosting.yahoo.com/ps/wh/prod/p1d.html) which go at 12 dollars a month has PHP and perl support. Depending on which plan you use, keep checking the details to see if it supports what you want.

    Did you view the PHP/MySQL vtms?

    Not yet. Ages ago when I first saw this site I wasn't into web design very much. Now, however, is a different story. Viewing those will be on my "to do" list tomorrow.
    Thanks for the reminder!
    And the search.

    Geocities

    I would only change one thing. Go to another Web Host. Not Geocities. I had them before, but they have very slow transfer speed, but the only good thing is that they have basiclly no down time.t. I switched to Brinkster . You will get 30MB for free, and i also think 500MD Data Transfer, im not sure, but i also think that they support PHP, and maybe ASP. Just check it out, and in 1 year i only had once a downtime of 1 min.

    I just love Brinkster. You can also get other packages. Realy good deals.

    Oh i just checked, yeah you can get ASP Hosting for free there. But it doesn't have free PHP.
