Usually password proctection of a site (or part of it) is accomplished through web server configuration.
You need your ISP support to go with it.

Unless you want to go with a CGI which checks each request for access rights; but it will be hard to find any resources on this, since (AFAIK) this is a very uncommon way.

Feel free to reject my answer if you were aware of what i'm saying, still need a script to handle access rights.

Cheers, julio
