That depends (sorry!). If you want to run svnserve or svn+ssh you'll
need an account on the machine to which you have ssh access. This may or
may not be the case with your hosting provider. If you want to integrate
with Apache, you'll need to be able to load apache modules and configure
Locations - this might very well not be doable with your provider.

Your best bet is probably to ask them directly whether they can support
Subversion. If not, there are a number of places providing Subversion
hosting starting very cheap (free). There are some links about halfway
down this page: http://subversion.tigris.org/project_links.html

Cheers,
Mike.
