What is shared hosting?
For many businesses, a consistent and reliable web presence is vital. Yet many smaller companies and organizations simply don’t have the budget to build expensive dedicated server systems and infrastructure. The solution is to share resources. Shared hosting services traditionally started out by selling space on hosting servers so that a number of different customers could be served by the one machine. An individual server could cater for a number of different hosting accounts, each with an allocated amount of storage and bandwidth.
