Shared Web Hosting is an entry-level type of web hosting where one physical server
hosts multiple websites (and often hosts hundreds of users). Since each user gets
(“shares”) a section of that individual server where they can host their website files, this
keeps costs low. Here users share system resources on-demand, receiving a percentage
of databases, disk space, CPU, RAM as well as email and FTP accounts. Other resources
include the single MySQL server, Apache server, and mail server. Considered the most
cost-effective option, Shared Server Hosting offers enough resources for any startup,
local business, or personal website.
