There are several different ways to serve a repository. One is
through the custom svnserve server. Another is through the
mod_dav_svn Apache2 module.

If your hosting provider uses Apache2 (Apache1 won't work) and allows
you to plug in custom modules and allows you to make custom entries
in the httpd.conf (most hosting providers I know qualify for none of
these), then you could use Apache to serve your repository. If they
don't normally offer that, maybe ask them if they'd be willing to add
it on their end, since it's a useful feature.

If they won't, then they probably wouldn't be too keen on opening a
port in the firewall and having the svnserve process running either.

But you could possibly still make it work through svn+ssh protocol.

The various server options are described in the book.
