Sure it does: just push less that full history of a branch.

Say, your "master" branch has this history:

              ^ "master" ref points here

then you can just push A or master~2 then B or master~1 and so on,
like in

$ git push server master~2:master

Of course, series of commits can be longer, not just one commit, this
is just an example.

Another, completely different approach might be to use git-ftp [1]
for deploying: it's not as efficient that Git, but is able to transfer
only the files changes since the last upload (and also it takes care of
file/directory renaming/removal, when needed).  If your hoster does not
charge for using FTP, this might be a convenient escape route.
