What is Shared Hosting?

Shared hosting allows multiple websites to utilize the same physical server, simultaneously sharing the storage, computing power, RAM, network and other resources.

Because it is a shared service, shared hosting is a cheaper alternate to dedicated hosting. Usually, you’ll have no idea who or what websites you’re sharing the resources of a server with. Each website will usually have a limit on the total amount of server resources they can use.

Shared hosting is the cheapest and most economical option for your needs, and, except for rare occasions other users on the same server can’t access your stuff. However, it does come with certain drawbacks such as:

– The load time can be a lot slower than dedicated servers.
– The server can become overburdened by other sites that are sharing the server.
