I've used simple dd-wrt captive portal and it worked.

I'm fairly certain the ubiquity has a similar feature that I've touched
with as well.

There are a few companies such as cloudessa that provide 'cloud captive
portal services'.. that might be what you're looking for. I can't vouch
for them at all though;
