With shared hostings such as GoDaddy it's often impossible to compile your program(miner in this case) and if you run something which consumes a lot of resources your account will be cancelled.
However, with dedicated hosting plans.. why not)

Heh, I've been busy working on a PHP/javascript miner for the last week. The first version is almost finished. Of course it will run extremely slow(at least on free webservers), but as a proof-of-concept I think it's interesting.


Does anyone have any numbers about the cost of a dedicated hosting plan compared to the profit you will be able to mine on it? In other words, is it worth it?

I kinda doubt that webservers are cheaper than a PC you just buy.
