Restricting i-bay website access to registered users and approved domains

I am looking for a contrib that would allow me, and provide an interface for, restricting i-bay website access to registered users and domains that I choose.  Can I do that already, or is there a contrib that will provide me with the means to do that?  I would also like an interface that would allow people trying to access the site to register.

may be this can help you

http://wiki.contribs.org/SharedFolders

be aware of that

Missing features

Even if this contrib brings some new options compared to ibays, some others are missing:

    There's no access using the atalk protocol. I don't have any MAC OS here to test the feature, and anyway newer MAC OS can access SMB shares so I don't think it's a big problem
    there's no support for ShadowCopy. I may add this in the future
    You cannot choose a shared folder as the content of a virtual domain. This is because it'd require a modification of a core package

I don't think that's it.

What I'm looking for is some way of restricting the websites I have on i-bays to only certain users from certain domains.  Now already, I think, you can restrict access to certain users of the SME server as explained here:

http://wiki.contribs.org/SME_Server:Documentation:Administration_Manual:Chapter14#Accessing_the_i-bays

But I'm not sure this is exactly what I am looking for.  A BBS like this forum, for example, could require a log-in for access and so would qualify as a website with restricted access.  I am looking for a turn-key solution, a contrib, that would provide that kind of functionality for any website.

I'm not just looking to restrict FTP access and I'm looking for some kind of interface to register users, something I see all the time for internet shopping.  How about that?  Is there a contrib that sets up an internet shopping site for registered users?  That would be a start.
