I suppose you are familiar with http://book.seaside.st/book/advanced/deployment ?

In my experience, you can run Seaside with pretty limited resources, but I never worked with a 'shared host' and I don't know what the technical restrictions are vs a regular host. You could also have a look at Amazon's EC2 ( http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/ ), even a micro instance (their cheapest plan) should be enough.
