  • The easiest way for you to accomplish this is with asp.net which has all the memberhsip / password / account management stuff already done for you.

    But that means you would have to use  a host that supports asp.net, and since the membership database is in SQLEXRESS (which is free), the host would need to support MSSQL database.

    If you want to know what is needed to do this, read this tutorial:

    There may be "simpler" less secure ways to accomplish what you want to do, but if you want all the bits you needs for a membership site, like ability to recover passwords etc., take a look at the reference above

  • I forgot to mention, it is possible to use Access database for the membership parts of asp.net, but using what is called a "Provider" for Access. I have not personally done it but know it can be done.

    I'll mention that that's a lot more complicated than using the database the asp.net membership tools will create for you, and for a beginner, it's an additional and probably daunting step.
