Password Protect Go Daddy Sites

Today’s Byte is pretty specific – but it you have a web site hosted on Go Daddy and you want to create a password protected section – you’re in luck.

(If that isn’t you – here’s something else to help while away the hours – http://www.websudoku.com a web site of Sodokus!)

GO Daddy is a cheap web host. (I use them a lot.) They just added a feature that makes it very easy to password protect folders on your web site.

Here are the instructions:

It only works for web sites on Linux servers. It looks as if they’ve just automated the process of creating an htpasswd file – but heck it’s easy and it works. SO I like it.

Have a great Valentine’s Day tomorrow!
