It is quite difficult to find web hosts who are willing to install LaTeX, so it’s good to read one person’s experience of trying to find a shared host offering LaTeX. (Shared) hosting with LaTeX – An overview gives 7 hosts who gave a positive response.
Following on from Mike Renfro’s comment below recommending A2 Hosting I contacted them to ask about their LaTeX hosting and this is their reply:
“Yes, we either have or can install the LaTeX packages upon request on any particular server. It’s not a problem as long as it does not become a server load issue. We are currently using the CentOS 5 latex package tetex-latex-3.0-33.1.el5 but if anybody wishes to install their own copy of LaTeX locally on their account they can always get the appropriate binary and do that also if they need a different version.
We would certainly be happy to have you point folks in our direction. We will go ahead and add a knowledge base article on the subject as well.”
