This is IIS confugartion, ask hosting provider to configure your virtual directory as an application in IIS.
And configure the application with appropriate net version for app_pool.
If you create net 4 application then ask to set app_pool to using net 4.

Providers on holidays,therefore I will continue at Monday... And,then I will inform about results.
By all means ,this is really first practice information on web jungles about this problem solving.Till now I think,that problem is in code changes on web.config directory.

Normally, if you're with a hosting provider, you should have the option to set application from hosting control panel.

It depends how your are running the application.
If your running it thro the temp asp.net webserver which starts when you run any application from the VS2008
Configure the web apps in your system IIS.
You might be getting this error because, the application need to configure in the local IIS instead of temp. asp.net web server. So move the application files into the Inetpub/wwwroot folder. And configure it as the web application before running.
