if I want to protect some pages on my website, which is better to use: cookies or sessions?

from a security standpoint...

As with so many things it all depends on the implementation. As long as you don't include the session id (SID) in the url (and if you are concerned about security you shouldn't) then your sessions are going to be based on cookies. Sessions are easier to use than cookies but I wouldn't say there is much difference in terms of security.

as u said " from a security standpoint " .. i would tell u to use sessions .. but if u have the way to protect ur cookies u can use cookies .. but generally , it's safer to use sessions as it's saved in the server not in the user computer , but cookies already are saved in the user's pc ..
