    I’m trying to make a client area on my website where I could update the progress of each individual clients’ work and they could upload and share the required documents with me and also communicate regrading with me. but since I’m a newbie and do not know how to code. I really want someone to help me out with it by sharing a tutorial for a free plugin or guiding me through it. I’ll be very thankful.

    best regards.

    The blog I need help with is anasalialamgir.wordpress.com.

    You cannot issue username accounts and issue passwords for any site hosted by wordpress.COM, regardless of upgrades.

    What I post below applies only to sites hosted by wordpress.COM.

    You cannot password protect a whole wordpress.COM site. You can password protect posts https://en.support.wordpress.com/post-visibility/ and/ or pages https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/page-visibility/ on a site.

    You can have either a public or a private WordPress.COM hosted blog See the guide here http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings.

    There is no limitation on the total number of contributors to any blog. If you’d like to invite others to publish posts or help approve comments on your blog, you can invite them to be a Contributor, Editor, or Author. Contributors cannot upload images. If you want users to receive updates each time you publish new content you can invite them to be a follower/viewer.

    Then see:
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#adding-users-to-your-site
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#adding-viewers-to-a-private-site
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/adding-users/
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#changing-user-roles

    Username accounts are required but registering blogs under them is not required. The invitees will have to register a WordPress.COM username account which requires an email address only, but they do not need to register a blog. That requirement is because the software has to be able to differentiate between hackers and official users and allow access only to those with username accounts and official roles on the blog.

    If the person being invited to contribute to your blog does not already have one, he or she will have to register a WordPress.COM username account. He or she does not need to register a blog. There is a just a username please option. The invitees who lack username accounts select the “username only” option here: https://signup.wordpress.com/signup/?user=1

    NOTE that as you have an account you would have to log out and clear your browser cache https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-your-browser-cache and cookies https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-wordpress-com-cookies to witness the process as the invitees without accounts would experience it.

    Upon receipt of the invitation, the invitee will need to click the “Accept Invitation” button in the invitation email. If the invitee is logged into their WordPress.com username account, he or she will be taken directly to your blog. If not, he or she will be taken to the log-in screen, where he or she can either log in, or can register a new WordPress.COM user account.

    The invitees need to be logged into their WordPress.com account prior to clicking the “Accept Invitation” link.

    Note that invitees who do create a new WordPress.com account at that point will still need to return to the invitation email and click the “Accept Invitation” button after doing so.

    Note:
    The number 10 is the number of outstanding invitations you can have at any point in time. That limitation is a spammer prevention measure. Wait until the invitees have registered and send out 10 more.

    If you want to add username accounts and passwords you have to hire a web host and move to a wordpress.ORG software install. Moving to self hosted wordpress: http://move.wordpress.com

    You need to hire a web host and then set up your own wordpress.ORG software install to be able to hand out username registrations. Please see Moving to Self-Hosted WordPress https://move.wordpress.com

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    WordPress.ORG support is at http://wordpress.org/support/ If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.ORG account, then click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right-hand corner of the page that opens, https://wordpress.org/support/register.php so you can post to the support forums there.

    Hi timethief,

    Thank you for your reply I highly appreciate it. But I apologize for not mentioning this before but I have my own registered domain (www.racgl.com). But trying to make a client area for my clients on the subdomain (partners.racgl.com) and make the login page as the front page and integrate a document manager plugin on it to share documents and also communicate with them.

    make the login page as the front page and integrate a document manager plugin on it to share documents and also communicate with them.

    racgl.com is hosted by Limestone Networks, not by wordpress.COM

    We do not provide support for wordpress.ORG software installs here at WordPress.COM support. That site is not on our WordPress.COM servers. You are posting to the wrong support forum.

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    This is wordpress.COM support. We provide support only for wordpress.COM hosted sites. Our support docs do not apply to
    (1) local installs of wordpress.ORG software on your own server or
    (2) wordpress.ORG software installs on paid hosting, and we do not provide support for them at wordpress.COM.
    (3) sites linked to wordpress.COM accounts with the Jetpack plugin so they display on the My Sites wordpress.com account page.

    Support for your site is found at http://wordpress.ORG/support/ The wordpress.ORG login link is here https://login.wordpress.org/ If you do not have an account yet then click Create an account https://login.wordpress.org/register/ and if you have lost an account password click Lost password? https://login.wordpress.org/lostpassword/
    WordPress.org support docs are at https://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page
    See also https://apps.wordpress.org/support/ for app support.

    Some Jetpack solutions are here http://jetpack.com/support/
    Others are in the Jetpack support forum at WordPress.org
    http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/jetpack
    However, if help cannot be found at either one then they can file a Jetpack support ticket here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/?jetpack=needs-service

    P.S. The answer is that less is more when it comes to categories and tags. Assign only the minimum number of relevant of keyword tags that actually describe posts content and never the same keyword or words as both a category and tag. See here https://onecoolsite.wordpress.com/2013/03/15/quick-blog-post-tagging-tips/
