Shared Web Hosting

Shared Web Hosting is the most common type of web hosting, and is also the easiest to start out on.

Shared Hosting is a service where one server is shared between many customers. This typically offers the following advantages and disadvantages:

    • It's cheaper: you don't need to pay for the whole server upfront.
    • It's easier to use: the server is preconfigured with the most popular options and your hosting company will take care of any maintenance and security updates for you.
    • You share the server resources with your neighbors: if one site becomes really busy it may affect (and slow down) all other sites on that server.
  • It can be less flexible: like living in a shared apartment block your neighbors need to be considered. Similar to exclusions on keeping pets or throwing wild parties (but less fun), you probably won't be able to block a specific port or modify a core component.

Because shared web hosting is the most common type of web hosting, most hosting companies simply refer to it as web hosting or web site hosting. AOShield shared web hosting comes in two flavors depending on your preferred operating system: Linux web site hosting and Windows hosting.
