Thinking about adding a members-only area on your asp.net site and allow only authenticated users to see certain pages. You don’t need to have a big audience to add members-only section in your site. The members-only area is particularly useful for publishing and sharing confidential information with selected visitors.
What are the basic features you need in your membership application? You need to allow new users to register at your site, allow users to access member’s only section using their username & password and allow members to change and reset their passwords. ASP.NET provides ASP.NET controls and tools that you can use to build login pages and to authenticate users.
