access.

I don't know about protecting individual files but if you're running
Apache it is possible to protect a directory. The Apache docs describe
what is required. If you have cPanel it is easy to setup protection and
maintain users and passwords. Does your hosting facility have cPanel ?

HTML can't do it. You need some server side technology, so it depends on the
capabilities of your webserver.

Do a Google search on "http authentication."

In IIS, you can right click on the page and disable anonymous access
and turn on windows authenticated. Then you just set the NTFS
permission on the actual HTML file on the file system.
