Depending on the access you have: Sure. You need to serve it through HTTPS 
though. FTP can't be used.

All you really need is to provide your key in the hashed format under a

You can get the hash by using "gpg --with-wkd -k foo at bar.baz"

See for example:

That one is for "andre at heinecke.or.at"
