How To Protect Files?

12 replies
Hi,

I'm creating an online site that I will give access to by password.

There was quite a bit of programming that went into the functionality that the site has.

Can anyone tell me how I can protect the source code and the .js files that the index page calls? After all the work that went into this, I don't want someone else to be able to imitate the functionality on my site just by copying my source code.

Thank you,
Bob

    You cannot prevent anyone of taking your JS code and using it. Any competent developer can readily get it from your site. So don't worry about it since there's nothing you can do about it.

      Can you protect inside pages and leave pages you want indexed without such coding?

      Personally, I'm not really looking to protect the pages from being copied, but I want to prevent html sites to be copied as a whole, which would show all my inside pages with I don't want to share.

    It is often required to protect files containing important financial data or text or images intended for private access only. Despite the fact there are many software solutions offering password protection for files, most of them offer only data encryption cycle.
