Default pw protect web pages?

I have been looking at some scripts & programs that password protect web pages when site hosted on another's server.

Thinking about using this one-

Default Re: pw protect web pages?

are you able to use a .htaccess file to password protect a directory?
if this is about as secure as you can go without having access to the server, the only improvemet I would suggest is the use of session variables rather than cookies as these are server side and automatically terminate when the browser closes, (unlike cookies that can be forged)/
