Access to private web site without login/password - How to implement?
I run a totally private website. Any visitor immediately gets login/password prompt, which is implemented at the webserver level (nginx). There's no option to register - I distribute login/password to legitimate users in advance.
This approach inconveniences the users because they have to type in username/password. I wonder if there's a way to provide every user with their unique URL, by clicking on which they would get access to the site immediately. I still want to disallow general public access. I also want to keep track which user is visiting my site.
Or perhaps, there exists a better solution?
I couldn't find any info on this on the web at all. If you can refer to any resources, thanks in advance!
PS. If this post belongs elsewhere, I'd appreciate your recommendation.
