Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have started creating a webpage on google site and really like it. However, I need to protect who is able to see it. I know there is the option that only of only people with the link can see the documents - but that is not enough. Unfortunately, I need more protection and my group members do not have gmail accounts and I will not be able to ask them to sign inn (too many organizations involved they will not do it!). What are my option? The site that I need to create is to share documents and I need at least 10 GBs of space for free! Huddle was an option but I need to pay for it. It really can be something very simple! Something even like drop box is also ok that is password protected and people do not need to download it!

So in short: - for free - at least 10 GB for free storage for documentation - if similar build as Google site would be great - limit the people that can access to the documents uploaded (not needing to download anything ex drop box.)

You want a service that is secure, but you don't want users to have to sign in? Or you don't want users to have to go through the process of creating an account in order to sign in? –  w3d Jul 25 '12 at 14:53
That's an awful lot of stuff you want without paying for it. –  Al E. Jul 25 '12 at 15:41
I think he means that they don't have to sign up for a Google account. Obviously the users will have to authenticate somehow, to something. But if they won't sign up for an account with Google, they won't sign up for a new account with anything else either. So the only real option is a password-protected space somewhere, with everyone knowing the loginID and password to use. This could be done with Sites: create the site, and an account that has the rights you want your people to have. Then tell the login ID and password. –  MaryC.fromNZ Jul 26 '12 at 10:56

One of the only option would be to create a posterous account, password protect your space and send the password to your contacts.
