Certainly. I always deploy and run cherrpy under a virtualenv in an
unprivileged user home directory.
The exact details of how to get it actually serving documents correctly
will depend on your host, but I'll admit I stopped using shared host
providers a few years ago when VPSs became so cheap. Getting things
working right on a shared host can be a pain, and if your app is at all
complicated things can break in subtle ways when your provider silently
upgrades or makes changes on the host machine. Not worth the hassle
unless you have no alternative.
