Save the IP address they are using for each login, and display it to the user somewhere (so they are aware of the logging). Inform the users that sharing accounts is ground for cancelling accounts without refund.
Normally a user would log in from one or two places. The first three bytes of the IP address is usually constant for a location, but the last may vary if they have a dynamically assigned IP addresses.
You should quite easily see if some account is accessed from a lot of places, and then you can investigate further where they are located. If a user is logging in from Australia and then ten minutes later from Finland, it's clearly not the same physical person.
I would also complain about this method and not use your site. What are the security procedures around storing the credit card numbers? Do you use SSL at the login? How much are the subscriptions worth as compared to being sued out of existence when the database gets hacked and the numbers are grabbed?
Yes, I realize this is dumb. The sub is $180/year and it was a victory just to try and get anything except the credit card. It uses SSL, how its stored, I don't know I didn't make the authentication method nor do I have access to that DB. Now enough about how terrible it is now, I know it is that is why I'm trying to get it changed, but they just have to have some thing to prevent login sharing (which I think is a waste of time).
You can easily deal with certain errors based on the the server error such as 404, 401, 301, whatever. Other than that, you will have to mess with source code in order to know the type of exception unless you are using .NET 2.0 which has that capability built into the web.config.

All of my sites are for SEO and target contextual searches. All of the static sites have the same structure but with different text, the texted that is changed is the keywords.
So every time i create a new site i have to update all the other static websites (LINKS PAGE) with the new websites url... YUK!
I write c#, and vb (I created all the SEO sites with the new MS Web Expressions) and thought that I could just throw some program togeather and loop directorys then locate the links page(for each static content site has the same NAME links page) but after thinking about it i feel that it was better to ask first before i waist my time..
right now i only have iis on the server; however, i can add support for php if you tell me where to look?
I am learning right now(the server world)but i am by no mean in the dark. What i am saying is that i just have a little server here at my home office that i am learning with and will move to the big boys some time around Nov. or Dec.
