You are on the right path but you are going to need some other things to go along with it. It gets a little in depth but on your server you are going to need a database, it will hold the user's login and passwords, and a server side technology. I personally would use PHP but there are plenty out there for you to choose from.

Here are some links with basic tutorials for logins using a database, and PHP. If you don't have a database i recommend MySQL since it is free to download from Sun's website.
