Short answer is yes. Any of the large providers will allow you to run whatever program you want on a remote machine. My personal favorite is 1&1, but there are many many others.

HOWEVER, it really depends on what you are trying to do, and there may be better solutions. For example, excel may not be the best program if you are going to have multiple simultaneous inputs. You are probably better off with some kind of database to store the data and use excel for the presentation layer.

ok I had visited 1&1. US site which cost me $20 a month.
and my requirement is want to run excel which execute my online trading account trades. which is in auto mode.& market which I am trading is 24 hours all weekdays except week end.

so how secure it is?  
Basic subscription is enough for me ($20)? as no big software to run.
Do I install the MS Excel in server or they are going to provide me?
& Most this is the good idea to implement?

Thanks

Without knowing the details of your application, you have to make sure that you can run excel on the plan you chose. You would have to purchase a copy of excel and you would have to talk to technical support at 1&1 to make sure that it can run. My suspicion is that this will cost you more than $20 per month, but I do not know the ins and outs of all their plans.

You can make the connection as secure as you would like it to be. Again, talk with their technical support about how to purchase certificates.

Finally, I can't really tell if this is a good idea or not. Excel is mostly a spreadsheet, and although it can be used in the way you describe, there might be better ways.
