    You can solve this problem by using .htaccess file.

    Code (markup):
    Just create the .txt file with the things to block and upload to your host and then rename to .htaccess

    I hope this would helpful to solve your issue.

    Easy way to hide everything, place this in your .htaccess file:

    IndexIgnore *.*


    That will ignore all files when an index is requested.
