What is shared web hosting?
Shared web hosting is when multiple websites, each with their own domain names, sit on one shared web server. The web server is partitioned so each individual website has its own 'section' and can run independently of each other.
Why use it?
Shared web hosting is a cost effective way for businesses to maintain their web presence. If you do not need the flexibility of a Virtual Private Server or high performance dedicated servers then this is the hosting for you.
