Yes it is possible but you will need to have a web server that can 
run Pyhon and there aren't too many of those on the internet...

OTOH if its a privately owned web server then password protection 
is usually a standard configuration item of the web server, you 
just edit a file and tell it to password protect a particular 
file or folder. Certainly Apache and Xitami work like that, 
no coding needed.
