I wrote a Catalyst How To for Hostgator shared hosting a while ago, 
which may be of some help:


I did this when I was first learning Catalyst, so be sure to check out 
the second post, which covers a couple of mistakes that I made.

You need to be able to create a .htaccess file, and may need some 
modules installing as root.  While the installation worked, it was a 
little slow.  I later moved it to a VPS solution, as this gave me much 
more freedom and better performance.
