Shared hosting is a web hosting service that enables many websites to use the same server. Why would they do that, you may ask this question. The answer is easy: cost & resources. A server can host more than 1 website. Thus, by assigning resources to different users, the cost of maintaining the server is significantly reduced.

Before getting into more info about shared hosting, let’s take a look at how servers and hosting actually work.

How Does Shared Hosting Work?

Simply put, whenever you type a website’s URL into your browser, it’s looking for the server on which that website is stored or “hosted.” Once the browser locates the server, it sends an HTTP request message to the server, requesting data & information
to make the website visible.

With shared hosting, the process is exactly the same. The only difference is that one server is responsible for storing/hosting the data of multiple websites at the same time.

Think of shared hosting as a cruise ship with different cabins. The cabin is the website, the ship is the server, and they are the people… who all want to reach the same destination – online success.

Although everyone uses the same server and the same method of transportation, their journeys are different. What you choose to do on a cruise ship is very different from what someone renting the same cabin with you decides to do. You share the engine to get to your destination, but you have the flexibility and freedom for a unique journey and experience. Shared hosting is the cheapest option among all web hosting solutions, which is why so many people prefer it.

Who Is Shared Hosting Most Suitable For?

This type of hosting is ideal for news websites, blogs, web development beginners, WordPress users, and eCommerce stores starting their online journey. Sharing a server means that your website is not yet at a stage where it needs to accommodate a lot of traffic, videos, or bandwidth.

What Are the Benefits of Shared Hosting?
