Hi, sometimes when you connect to WI-Fi, internet tab opens with some background that says click "JOIN"(or whatever else)  to join network.

Does anyone know what is the name of that thing  and how to make it ??
Any tutorial or clue is helpful.

It's called a Captive portal.

A lot of those captive portals use the HTTP Redirect method, which fails when the HTTP URL it intercepts is redirected to the equivalent HTTPS URL. Which happens to be a large fraction of the web nowadays. I find I have to remember the URL for a site which doesn't use HTTPS to make those portals work.
