Server Side your only choice.
Different server, different implementation method.

So, the question is...

what web server software is running on your site?

Places like Angelfire leave stuff like that up to you... You may wanna check their online help or faq to see if they let you pw protect your site(s). Basically, you do something like this:

-script-
prompt="('Enter password')" = password;
if(password == "opensesame")
-a href="mainpage.html"--/a-
-/script-

Try that. I'm not a javascript wizard, but... try it anyway.

Command Line Tips and Tricks

The command line is a powerful tool at the disposal of every Linux user. Although Linux distros come with beautiful user interfaces, it's worthwhile to learn the command line because it allows you to do a number of things that you otherwise cannot do from the GUI.

You can look at www.cgi-resources.com for such a coding.. Although, you must have PERL/CGI access for some scripts.  www.cgiforme.com (I think thats the addy) will allow you to host some scripts.  

You might also contact your ISP and they *MIGHT * let you host the script on their servers, although most don't because of such security errors.
