Share hosting is a web hosting in which a site is placed on server with thousands of other websites and every website has its own domain name. There are numerous of companies incorporated with a motive of providing shared hosting. The concept of shared hosting well suits the requirement of small, medium sized business and for personal sites.

Everyone wants to gain excellence by paying less, let me explain you in depth, small business do not want to spent more on hosting their site on dedicated server, as it is too much expensive. Therefore, these small companies mainly depend upon shared hosting.

Most Widely Used Hosting Services

Dedicated hosting and Shared hosting are most reliable hosting service. In Dedicated hosting the website data has its own server, whereas, in Shared hosting many websites data gets stored at same server.

Your website is hosted on the server and server is the place where the data is stored and it is available every time (i.e 24×7). Like on Internet every computer has its own IP address (Internet Protocol) just like that every server has an IP address.

Benefit of Shared Hosting

There are mainly two benefits of shared hosting; one is that it is comparatively much cheaper than dedicated hosting, and another benefit is its “outsourcing feature”, due to this you don’t need to recruit a technical staff to run it. Professional web hosting company is well aware with the business needs and with its technically trained and experienced staff offers reliability.

Remember

In shared hosting many websites share the disk space, bandwidth, data transfer, and email accounts. Each website is allotted a specified amount of bandwidth for a month and if these sites exceed the bandwidth limit then they are charged accordingly. If every website uses their reserved quota then shared hosting will not work properly, but if done in a proper manner then it can work nicely. So there is a need to hire a professionally trained hosting company and it should be reliable.

Issues

There are serious issues related with shared hosting; one is that it does not support HTTPS, and the other issue is that if one website on the server is compromised then other website has to compromise. Further, if any website is found in guilt of disturbing spam then the entire server can be blocked or disabled and this becomes as an obstacle in the path of legitimate sites
