Is it possible to have a publicly accessible space that is password protected?

I want a public space for FAQs relating to a system we use across a relatively large and dispersed audience of people we work with. We cannot feasibly have a license for each user (they need read only access), however we don't want this information being found and shared publicly.

We wanted to have a general password we update and share across our network, but they don't need a full license. Or perhaps there are other ways of achieving the same level of security without creating an excessive number of read-only users?

Is this possible with either the server or on-demand versions?

Create one read-only user and have everyone login with that user.

Would multiple people be able to use this simultaneously without kicking each other out the system?

Yeah it will work. You can test it. Just open two different web browsers(chrome and firefox for example) with the same user. Now, it's usually not as good idea to use one user for editing as there is no audit trail at that point, but read-only is probably pretty safe.

Okay excellent - thank you very much!
