    One way is to encrypt the file before you upload it, using StuffIt (from or some other encryption program. Then only someone who knows the encryption password can unscramble the file.

    Another way is to configure your web server to require a password to enter certain folders or download certain files. You would want to talk to your web service provider about the specifics of how to do that with your web account.
