If several developers can work together, they are better to share a dedicated computer because then they are in full control.
After looking at a number of options, it turned out that shared hosting was not for me.
The price difference between shared and dedicated is not a lot if you have friends with whom you can split the cost.
Example: My almost totally useless "1&1 MS Developer" account costs me US$20 per month; my corenetworks.net costs me US75 per month.
1&1 says I can have unlimited applications but they mean only ASP (I am only allowed between one and five ASP.NET applications). So much for clarity in advertising.
Note: the first month with corenetworks.net cost more because I added some extra RAM and a second hard disk.
BUT, with corenetworks.net I get Win2008 R2 Web Edition + SQL Server 2008 Web edition + quality, responsive technical support.
1&1 is good for cheap .com registration, possible the cheapest, BUT for ASP.NET MVC imnsho 1&1 is useless.
