Hostinger shared hosting
Shared Hosting works by hosting multiple websites on one server. Some compare shared hosting to a public transportation system, because it is inexpensive to use, and involves sharing resources (such as processor, memory, and storage space) with other users.
Hundreds or even thousands of websites can be hosted on a single server, and users can set up multiple sites at the expense of one, creating advantages and disadvantages.
In return, the hosting company provides technical support, maintenance of server hardware and software, and provision and updating of basic security protocols.
Shared host packages can also include multiple plans offering sets of features at higher prices, but users are usually responsible for setting up and running their own sites.
Shared Hosting Advantages
Low costs. It does not require special technical skills. Simple control panel to facilitate site management with pre-installed software or software that can be installed with the push of a button.
Continuously updating and developing the server by the company.
Shared hosting makes it possible for almost anyone to create an online presence, but sharing a server with many others can cause problems.
Each site on a server is owned and running independently, but malware or viruses that infect one website can also affect its neighbors if security is not a top priority for the hosting company.
Shared hosting plans can work well for small sites with relatively low volumes of traffic, and for many website owners, especially novices, this type of hosting solution is all they need.
Personal enterprises, small businesses, and even medium-sized companies can take advantage of co-hosting benefits.
The previous disadvantages can be overcome as long as the site traffic is not too heavy, and the server is protected by reliable security protocols.
Disadvantages of Shared Hosting
Shared server resources, hundreds or thousands of sites can share one server and one resource. Higher security risk: if one site is compromised, for example, the other sites will be compromised.
For example, a server’s IP address is blacklisted if someone on the same server sends unwanted messages.
