Allow password-protected hosting, and hosting from a non-Adobe server
These two features would go a LONG way to making Publish Online a viable format for professional publishing. I'm sure many clients would pay an extra fee (nothing outrageous) for a self-hosted solution, if that would be necessary for Adobe to commit resources to make this happen.
Thank you all for your feedback and votes on the feature request.
We are currently looking into this important feature request. As part of the evaluation, I would be reaching out to some of you to gather deeper insights.
Please help us by providing your valuable inputs and feedback.

Is this idea under consideration? Adobe XD added Password-protected prototypes. It seems like almost the exact feature that I believed is being requested here for InDesign. I currently have two active clients who have rejected using Adobe InDesign published documents due to the lack of this exact feature. I'd appreciate it if you could let me know if this is even under consideration.

Whatever the advantages to the service, my organisation will not use Publish Online until we can host on our own servers or one maintained by one of our contracted suppliers.
Separating this from hosted service, because I suspect moving to a hosted service is a bit more complicated. Having password protection would help folks monetize published documents and be a step toward security.
Password protection would be a good start!
