Avoid accessing SF to authenticate users to get around API limit

Hi All,
We are re-building a webstie that used Dynamics CRM as the backend system.  The new website will use Salesforce.  We'll be using Salesforce to store users' login information.  Due to the SF API limit, we want to avoid having to make a call to SF to authenticate users as much as possible.  We are new to Salesforce and would like to hear your opinions/suggestions on how to best accomplish this?  Our website has heavy traffic that will continue to grow so we feel like continuing to increase our API limit is not a good long term solution.

Are you saying that users of your website will also be users in Salesforce?  Or are you saying that the website users' credentials are stored in Salesforce, but are not actual users in Salesforce?  Either way though, I think you would need to make an API call to Salesforce to authenticate the users.  Perhaps store the credentials somewhere else besides Salesforce?
