How could I make a secure section of my site where its not using javascript on the html.  I want it so people cant see the url anywhere if the open a page in notepad or they cant find the password
I dont want it to link to a url i want a specific url to be password coded so if you go directly to the url it asks for a password

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.

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.
