That depends on exactly what you mean by "hosting provider".  If you
have contracted for the whole host (including a VM), and the
"preinstalled" software is done as a service for you, maybe.  (It's
not obvious, though, and IANAL.)

Mostly, it's a Catch-22.  You only receive GPL rights if you've
received at least some of the code already.  The common "virtual host"
service where you have your own domain name, and can upload content
for distribution by a webserver and can create email addresses and
mailing lists does not imply any GPL rights.
