You need to use some kind of server-side scripting language like PHP, and a database like MySQL to store usernames, passwords and other information. And then you need to code up a registration form, log-in form and stuff like that.

If you don't want to bother yourself with doing all this, you can use one of the numerous open-source content management systems available - most of them provide user accounts management. For starters, try Joomla or Drupal - you can find many more by searching.

I think the CMS may almost be the best idea if you don't know any server side scripting ... You can also add a password to certain pages through your website's control panel ... but I don't think that's going to work for you ...
