My plan is to install puppet master on shared server ,so is it mandatory to install puppet on dedicated box? or does it work on shared server as well?

2) As iam using shared server i cannot change hostname of the server so is it mandatory to have puppet master hostname as 'Puppet' or anything will work?

To answer #2: your puppet master server can be anything. By default, clients will want to talk to a puppet server running on the host puppet - but this can be a host alias or DNS CNAME pointing to the actual puppet server, or you can configure the clients' server setting to talk to a different hostname.

You will also have to make sure that the SSL cert generated on the master has an alt name of puppet if you want a dns alias of puppet to work.
