What do you mean by "physical address"? What kind of files do you have that have you that worried about "stealing bandwidth"?

In general, anybody who visits your pages downloads your stuff - just to see it. That's not stealing - that's how the internet works.

We're either not speaking the same language or I'm just not getting what you want - but ANYTHING on your website in order to be even viewed on anybody elses computer is downlaoded, whether you like it or not.

If you want to keep stuff for yourself - don't publish it!!!
