This article focuses on all the details you need to have a clear idea of modern shared web hosting. Please keep reading to find out what shared web hosting is, its benefits and its faults.
Shared Web Hosting (sometimes referred to as virtual hosting) is a type of web site hosting in which web server's resources are shared across hundreds of domains. CPU, RAM and Disk space are all split into accounts with software such as cPanel, Plesk & Direct Admin managing the accounts and server software.
When users enter the domain name in their browser, they are directed to the shared web server. The web server has configuration files that split each account up and serve the correct website, with all services run from one dedicated server.
Shared web hosting with multi-tenants gives operators a much lower cost advantage, which provides clients with a lower cost of entry into web hosting. If you want to set up a website that you expect to receive minimal to moderate traffic, a shared hosting plan can help you cut costs.
If you find yourself outgrowing a shared hosting plan, we suggest looking at cloud hosting, like our managed WordPress Hosting.
