- as far as accessing through the web goes this is a matter of
webserver configuration, set up your webserver in a such a way that it
will not return the source code for your scripts

- regarding shared webhosting services, you may not be able to deny
access to people who have shared accounts (and shell login) on the
same server as you do. It all depends on how the shared accounts are
set up.
