Is your host a dedicated server or on the cloud. Dedicated server no  difference.

If on the cloud:

you may not have access to central admin.
No access to registry settings to change allowed file types.

Need to get hosts to add users.
Farm level solutions - you may not be able to add.- only sandboxed solutionswhich can be restricitve
 Can't change settings such as Max file size, add policies

Office365 gives some of this capapbility as it has its own cut down version of central admin.

Are you talking about a shared SharePoint environment (office 365), or a dedicated server and farm?  If you have a dedicated server, there really are no limitations as long as networking is set up between the hosted server and your internal network.

If you are talking about an environment like Office 365, you don't have access to the actual server, you don't have full access to Central Admin, you can't deploy custom dll files, and I think there is some limitations to the URL of your site(s).  Not sure that you can sync profiles with your AD either.
