    This depends on your hosting account and how apache is configured.

    For shared hosting Apache required a domain name so it knows what webroot to use. 

    Instead of using IP you will need to use domain name.

    For Example

    From my cloud server I can access a picture by IP or domain or http://oslinux.xyz/fedora.jpg both links work

    however if I try from my cPanel account only the domain works

    http://polycom.oslinux.net/fedora.jpg works but fails.


    I already change the domain. This is my webhost link http://will-ro.net/files/ still cant access says 



    You don't have permission to access /files/ on this server.

    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
