I have a customer that wants to have a website page that has one login (username and password) and once the user puts in their credentials, the page sends them to another website that is determined by the username and password that they use.

I know how to password protect pages or directories on the server, but not sure how to do what he wants.

He is currently using a Wordpress site.  He doesn't have anything setup yet and was asking if I could make it work like that.

Ok Eyal, yes just about anything is possible with programming, but I am not a programmer.  How about for the website designer and hosting provider?  If this can't be done fairly easy, than maybe I should have him hire a programmer.

Well I don't think it has to be Wordpress if I can accomplish what he wants to do.

I know pretty much anything can be done with programming, but this does not really give a detailed answer.
