Install Yacy on a shared hosting website

I’ve search around but I can’t seem to find an answer to this. I want to use yacy as a search engine on our website but I want everything stored on our shared hosting server. The question is, can it be installed on our hosted server (bluehost) and if so how do I go about doing it. Would I have to do something like use SSH access to install the linux version?

I dont have much experience with Yacy but if you intend to use it as a crawler you may need to phone your webhost company. I think they would have concerns with performance related issues.
