Hi all,

Is this possible?

I want all my hosting customers to have a directory (let call it 'padlock') under the public_html directory, that only allows access from a list of domains/ipaddresses.

Rather than having customers setup .htaccess files in their individual 'padlock' directories, is it possible to setup the webserver to automatically setup 'hostwide' access blocking 'padlock' directories on all accounts without using .htaccess.
Thereby eliminating the performance slowdown associated with individual .htaccess files.
