[thelist] how secure is reasonable

Silly question, but I have a client who has documents which are 
confidential which he needs to share with his business partners.  They 
need to be able to upload as well as catalog/organize the documents.  A 
tech guy told him to buy a server and set it up in his basement, then 
set up a network for sharing the docs.  Seems expensive and like 
overkill to me.  The client is not 'into' techy.

I suggested we could set up a secure location on his website (hosted), 
then I set up restricted access (probably php/mysql login password) and 
also (I did not go into detail) I could probably set up .htaccess to 
lock down the directory. 

Would this be a reasonable solution?
