I am trying to figure out a way to provide temporary access to a prototype of a website I am building to beta testers, press, bloggers, etc.
I think the ideal solution would be a way to auto-generate temporary, self-destructing (i.e. time-limited) passwords to my site that I could hand out to whoever I needed, and I could rest assured that after a preset amount of time the password would no longer provide access to the my site.
I had this vision of a web service, something like gatekeeper-example.com that would simply ask visitors to enter in a password (that I generated using my admin account) and upon entering the code I provide them with, the clock starts ticking and after a preset amount of time has passed, the site would no longer be assessable. Not sure if such a thing exists, or is even possible, but it sounds nice and probably would accomplish what I am trying to accomplish.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated… Thanks!
