I can help you!

If you are serious about hiding contents follow the 6 point program below.

1. take it down from the publicly available internet location
2. turn off the computer with the original files
3. remove the harddrive
4. destroy the harddrive by using a 18 LB sledge hammer.
5. bury the remains in a land fill.
6. have hypnosis to remove any traces of memory of the above.

These 6 steps which save you 6 steps such as you find in drug and alcohol 12
step programs are the only sure way to hide contents such as you would find
on the portion of the internet accessible through the use of a browser.

If you want to hide things the web is not the place for you.

The web is the next generation in communication.

To understand what this means  the MW dictionary
http://www.m-w.com/ defines communication like this:
Main Entry: com·mu·ni·ca·tion
Pronunciation: k&-"myü-n&-'kA-sh&n
Function: noun
Date: 14th century
1 : an act or instance of transmitting
2 a : information communicated b : a verbal or written message
3 a : a process by which information is exchanged between individuals
through a common system of symbols, signs, or behavior <the function of
pheromones in insect communication>; also : exchange of information b :
personal rapport <a lack of communication between old and young persons>
4 plural a : a system (as of telephones) for communicating b : a system of
routes for moving troops, supplies, and vehicles c : personnel engaged in
5 plural but singular or plural in construction a : a technique for
expressing ideas effectively (as in speech) b : the technology of the
transmission of information (as by print or telecommunication)
Nowhere in the above definition does the act of communication imply hiding,
restricting, or otherwise put limits on communication once a common system
is defined.

The web and HTML is such a system. Its whole design and purpose is to
transmit data. This data may be truth, lies, opinions, conjecture, or my
personal favorite, raving lunacy. But it is communication on a scale only
imagined by science fiction writers, that is now in front your eyes. The
ability that we have to present thought, information, speculation, news, and
history not only for personal or professional reasons is the most
liberating creation in history.

But hell, Let's hide stuff!
After all, hiding stuff has been responsible for more wars, hatred,
injustice, bigotry, and evil since folks have begun communicating.
Hiding stuff has been good business for religions, companies, dictatorships
and even so called democracies. One of the most interesting ideas and moral
strictures that still exists is the 'wisdom' that people can't handle the
truth. This is usually promoted by a self appointed group whose aim is to
restrict information in such a way as to continue  a  structure of power for

Hiding stuff comes from fear. Believing that someone is out to take it,
raises the question of what led you to the conclusion that whatever it is
has such a potential for destroying your way of life? And since you have
reached this conclusion, where did the idea come from to put it on the web?

The web is the last place in the world to attempt to hide anything.

The code is against you.
The browser is against you.
The computer and it's connection is against you.
The structure and protocols used in the internet are against you.
I am against you, but I did offer you a solution that I know works.

If you want to hide things the web is not the place for you.
