Password Protect a Directory in a Hostgator Website

Password Protect a Directory in a Hostgator Website

I found another way to deliver huge video files over the Internet privately and in high definition… using my Hostgator website.

Password Protect a Directory in a Hostgator Website

I needed to send the raw video footage of last weekend’s shoot to the client quickly.

I wanted to send the video in high definition without compressing to smaller file size. I wanted to maintain privacy without going though a third party service. I wanted speed.

So I decided to use my Hostgator website to deliver the goods.

Why Hostgator website? I have other web hosting providers, but they restrict uploading speeds. Uploading videos to Hostgator website is as fast as uploading to YouTube. Uploading files to other web hosts, like Bluehost, Godaddy and Yahoo Business Web, are as slow as Vimeo.

How?

– Login into your Hosgator cPanel and click on the Subdomain icon, found under Domains.

– Create a Subdomain. If you are running WordPress on the main domain, you must create a Subdomain, otherwise password protection will not work.

– Create a directory in the Subdomain. Use the same subdomain for other clients and projects by creating more directories.

– Go back into your cPanel and click on the Password Protect Directories icon, found under Security.

– Choose Document Root and select your Subdomain. Click Go button below.

– Click on the directory you created.

– Check the box for “Password protect this directory:” Click on Save button below.

– Click “Go Back”.

– Fill in a Username and Password at the bottom of the page, and click “Add/modify authorized user”.

– The directory is now protected by password.

– Upload video files to the directory with Filezilla, an FTP program. Uploading using an FTP program is faster and allows bigger file size instead of using the web host Uploader.

PS:
One of the quickest way to send huge files is using DropBox. You get 2GB of space but individual file size limit is 300MB, though you can upload bigger files by downloading and using their app on your desktop or mobile device. No username and password required by client on the other end to receive the goods. Security? Breach can only happen among sharers. I will get extra free space if you sign up with DropBox. Would you like to help me get more space by clicking here to sign up with DropBox? Thanks! :)

google keyword tool - videography course

Videography Course vs How to Make Video on Google Keyword Tool

google keyword tool - videography course

A quick research on Google Keyword Tool revealed the truth.

I must rephrase my Basic Videography Course sales page in order to get more hits.

Here is what I discovered…
(“Keyword” Global searhes – Singapore searches)

. “videography course” 390 – 28

Only 28 searches in Singapore a month!
(some are my own to check that my page is searchable)
No wonder I am not getting enough enquiries.

Then I saw this right below “videography course”

. “photography course” 49,500 – 1,300

What a huge difference!
I will consider teaching photography instead.

For now, let me stick with my expertise.
Are people searching for “video editing course”?

. “video editing course” 1,900 – 58
. “video editing courses” 1,600 – 22
. “video editing services” 1,600 – 28

The numbers look good for global search but not for local search.
So maybe I should start a course for the world and forget teaching in Singapore.

What about “video production course”?

. “video production course” 480 – 16

Just as pathetic as “videography course”

Now try “how to make videos”.

. “how to make videos” 22,200 – 170
. “how to make video” 49,500 – 720

The data looks better now, especially for global.

Let’s go deeper.

. “how to edit videos” 18,100 – 170
. “how to edit video” 12,100 – 260

A little more promising.

Go even deeper.

. “how to edit videos on youtube” 1,000
. “how to use adobe premiere” 2,400
. “how to use sony vegas” 2,900
. “how to use windows movie maker” 6,600
. “how to edit videos on windows movie maker” 210

I left out Singapore searches because the figure is just too minute.
I am beginning to see where my market is. Not here but out there.

It looks like people are searching more for a product name rather than what they want to solve or learn.

Let’s see the data for product names.

. “adobe premiere” 1,830,000 – 6,600
. “adobe premiere pro” 550,000 – 2,900
. “adobe premiere pro cs6″ 90,500 – 480
. “adobe premiere elements” 201,000 – 720

. “sony vegas” 3,350,000 – 8,100
. “sony vegas pro” 1,220,000 – 2,900
. “sony vegas pro 11″ 450,000 – 1,000
. “sony vegas pro 12″ 49,500 – 170

. “final cut” 1,830,000 – 8,100
. “final cut pro” 1,220,000 – 6,600
. “final cut pro 7″ 110,000 – 590

BINGO! I think I found my market if what I am thinking is right.

I read somewhere that 300 searches means the market is viable for business.

I also searched for “how to record video”, “how to take video” and “how to shoot video”. They were not at all interesting, so I did not present the figures here.

Conclusion

Based only on these numbers, here’s what I can do better:
1. Create online courses for the world instead of teaching locally.
2. Focus the course on teaching using specific products like Adobe Premiere, Sony Vegas and Final Cut.
3. Start by giving free lessons online.
