Static, .htaccess .htpasswd

I am new to render, looking to post hugo sites.
I want to limit access to the sites with password.
can I use .htacess and .htpasswd with render?

cheers
happy new year.

We don’t currently have any built-in support for authentication with static sites at this time. However, we are planning to improve the feature set of our static site offering in the near future, so I encourage you to submit a feature request at https://feedback.render.com/ with your use case.
