Hi there

Just a quick question, I am in the process of designing a website to which I want to restrict access to certain pages.

The site in its self is about projects I have done or am doing and want to stop users viewing these and want to display a popup asking for a username and password, also if possible to lock out certain countries viewing my site

I want all users to use the same username and password and I think its called something like a htacess popup? I know if one wanted to they could get round this but its just to add a little bit of security, harder the better :)

I have done some reading on this and I have found you need to make whats called a .htaccess file :) how do you go about doing these types of files and where abouts do you put them?

The website is being hosted on a propper server. (the free website ones)

Any help would be appreciated
