How to create a secure member site for customers only

I am looking to make a site that will allow only the paying members of my site to be able to view the videos that I have record.  I would also like to make a count down till there subscrition runs out.  The problem is I don't know where to begin.

the i guess u should try using a cms like drupal or joomla which are free.

atleast what your membership requirement will get fullfilled easily just by installing a cms.

A  CMS wont require you to do any programming.

Check it out   ,

there are many other free cms avaliable on the net , you could search them on google.

Hi larrybnice,

Setting up password protected areas for a site is simple if you have a little server-side scripting knowledge (PHP, ASP, etc).  Do you?

vipul999 is correct.  A CMS site may be what you want.  You can also get the same effect with a WordPress site plus a few extensions to restrict users by login.

The actual package you will choose is up to you.  Joomla and Drupal are very powerful, but also very complex and not all that friendly to use.  WordPress is less powerful, but simpler to administer.

Still need to find out about the paying and the timing out of membership
You have to install payment modules available for joomla, drupal & i think wordpress too. You will have an idea once you start working with them.
