Shared web hosting is a type of web hosting service where multiple websites are hosted on a single server, and the server’s resources are shared among the websites. This is the most affordable option for hosting a website as the cost of maintaining the server is shared among the multiple users.
Shared hosting typically offers a lower cost of entry, making it a popular choice for small businesses, personal websites, and blogs. It also typically includes a control panel for managing the website, email accounts, and other features. The hosting provider usually takes care of maintenance, security, and technical support.
However, since the server’s resources are shared, the website’s performance can be affected by the actions of other websites on the same server. Additionally, there may be limitations on the amount of storage, bandwidth, and other resources that can be used by the website.
If you’re looking for more control and resources, VPS or dedicated hosting may be a better option.
