Typically in order to get your webcam feed online this is going to be dependent on your webcam software that it came with. Usually on a shared hosting server like ours, you wouldn't want to actually set the streaming feed up directly on the server itself, as this can lead to a large amount of server CPU usage over the course of the day.
In some cases your webcam software might support publishing separate images at a set time interval such as every 5 minutes via FTP to a server. If that is the case that might be doable on a shared server, but you would need to ensure that you aren't leaving old uploaded images on the server indefinitely.
Some webcam software will also allow you to setup the video stream locally on your own computer, and then provide you with HTML code to embed it into your website.
In most cases though you can use a webcam streaming service to stream video live from your webcam to that service, then most of them provide a way for you to embed that video into your website. Essentially your webpage would load from our server, but then the visitor would be streaming the video feed itself from that webcam streaming service.
Here are a few popular webcam streaming services that you might want to check out for this:
