Never hosted a website before? Shared Web Hosting is a perfect place to start. It's safe, secure, and relatively maintenance-free as the server is managed by the hosting provider in the majority of the cases. Many websites reside on one web server sharing the same resources in shared web hosting. Other users on the same server can't access your stuff, but you share resources like physical hard drives and RAM.
Shared hosting is very popular as it is a much cheaper web hosting option than a VPS or a dedicated server. However, the low price comes with limitations, but some plans that we've listed are tremendous.
Since most hosting companies will offer the same amount of space and storage, choosing a web host you can trust is important. You usually limit the total amount of server resources they can use, but this will be defined by your hosting package. It is advised not to host your business or eCommerce website on a shared hosting account. It allows small and medium-sized businesses to build and manage a website without detailed servers, email, or databases.
- Shared hosting is, by far, the cheapest hosting option available. The Monthly cost of shared hosting ranges from $2.99 to $9.99.
- There is no need for in-depth knowledge of the server as the hosting provider takes care of the maintenance. So it is also called hassle-free hosting.
- Very limited resources are provided, so not suited for business or eCommerce websites.
- You do not have control over the server, so you can not install your applications or change server settings.
