Shared hosting is a web hosting service where multiple websites share a single physical server. It is the cheapest option among other web hosting services, as the server maintenance cost is shared by many customers. In shared hosting, a single server stores all of the data for several sites and serves it as needed. The providers are responsible for all kinds of technical stuff including server maintenance, installing software, security updates, technical support, etc.
That’s why shared hosting is the perfect choice for beginners. Due to the low investment and absence of regular maintenance, this sort of hosting is an appealing option for small businesses, blogs, portfolio websites, personal websites, and database-driven websites. However, it’s not perfect for heavy users, larger businesses, and tech-savvy people.
