The password for membership management is made by integrating the information on the paid site, the ID, and the expiration date for the paid period. First, a value of 100 is added to a unique letter from the paid site and to the ASCII code value of the first letter of the ID, and then the ending date is added. Using this method, the passwords for paid members are created and given to the members by mail. This method needs just another password field for paid members added to the previous membership management DB. Even if more sites are formed, it is not necessary to add another field again.
