Best services to create a simple login for a website?

I am looking to see if there are any recommendations of ways to make a simple login with username/password that stores the data. I have heard of janrain, autho and hull. Any others that are free or less expensive? Or really recommended?

Julie,

Are you trying to find a social login to complement your existing login solution? Or, are you just trying to build something that let's people "login."

If it's the former, the main competitors (including Janrain) that I've looked at are:
  • Janrain
  • Gigya
  • Stormpath
  • OneAll

Usually when login is required, people use a CMS like Drupal or Wordpress because the functionality is built-in and free.

You don't say what you mean "that stores the data". What data? Any login system will of course store user identity info. Do you also want a system that will store additional data in each user's profile (rather than storing it in your own database)?

DailyCred (dailycred.com) has this feature (they call this "attributes") as well as the ability to support logging in with just an email address or through Facebook, Twitter, Google, GitHub, Windows Live, Linked In, etc. They also support the ability to login with only client-side code if you want that.

EDIT: I wouldn't recommend using a CMS just for the login functionality. That's using a sledgehammer when you need a screwdriver. That said, if you are using a CMS then you should definitely consider using built-in or built-for login solutions. You didn't provide any information about what you're building so all our answers have a bit of speculation in them.

I guess it's only specific depending on your stack, but I have had success with django all auth

Service or a library?
I recently used UserCake for a PHP/MySQL based solution and I am very happy with it.
