Okay just to get started immidiatly I wondered if I can use my server on hosting24.com with unlimited everything to mine on.  I have full access to cpanel make email ect. If anyone could help me set this up I will give you some of my 1st profits?  And if it is not possible then is there any open source pooled mining code I can upload, not for a service but just for me to link all my various laptops desktops into one.  Kind of like a private pool lol.  Again thank you for your help.

Without root access? No.

And webhosts don't have any good GPU power to give you more than a couple of million hashes / sec.

CPUs are inferior to GPUs.

What he said, not feasible.

There are however open source mining pools you could implement, though that is beyond my scope of knowledge.

Yes, thats what I meant.

However, you can have a javascript miner to put on the sites hosted on the server.

The amount of hashing you'll get is very minimal compared to even a crappy cpu generating a million hashes / sec.

You would have to have a shit-load of visitors to get the equal amount of a $100 graphics card.

I came here to post the same thing. The javascript miner works by using visitors browsers to mine bitcoins. They get about 800khash/s using the browsers access to CPU. Over time, if you have a high traffic site, this could easily build up I'd think.

Check out some of my music, and if you like it, please donate!

Except those khash/s don't mean anything if they don't solve a share before leaving the site if I understand how bitcoin mining works right.

Unless you are renting a dedicated server, most webhosts will prohibit processes using large amounts of CPU time. Keep in mind that your webhost would have access to the wallet.dat stored on the server as well.

And that is why facebook could become richer over 24h if they implented it since most visitors don't log out for their entire computer-session.
I sense danger.

Donations welcome, not required.
I'll be honest, any donations aren't used for a good cause, they go directly to booze, food, herbal substances Wink, and computer hardware.
I will squander the money, but hell, at least you know one person is having a good time.
