Understanding shared hostingNowadays probably there are no people who had never surfed on the Internet. All the people are searching for the information on the Internet every day and more and more people are creating their own websites. In order to create a website and to keep it running properly, you must have at least minimal knowledge about hosting and understanding shared hosting and dedicated hosting is very important as well. It is impossible to run a website without hosting. The most important question for all the beginners who are creating their own websites is where to get a server for his website? It is not a secret that not all the people can afford themselves buying private server because they are really expensive. Because of this there are many hosting companies which are offering quite cheap hosting, called shared hosting.
Do you know how shared hosting works? Understanding shared hosting is not very difficult even for the beginners. It is a type of hosting which provides for the client just a segment of server and he must share that server and IP address with other users. For some users it is not a problem at all, for example for those who are running a small website for their personal needs. However, sometimes shared hosting makes it difficult for some pages to appear, for example for secured pages. Also it can be a huge problem if shared hosting prevents the site from using its own SSL certificate and it can prevent some users from visiting the site. Understanding shared hosting and these important disadvantages is very important for everyone who is going to use it.
After reading these negative things about shared hosting, you will probably ask: why people are using this type of hosting? The most important reason of using shared hosting is its price. Since it is several times cheaper than dedicated server, most beginners are using it in order to save their money.
One more thing significant in understanding shared hosting is knowledge where you can get it. There are many companies offering shared hosting and proving that they are the best. However, you have to consider all their offered services, like technical support, security and other. Make sure that the company you have chosen is able to work not only with Microsoft Windows but also with Linux operating system while some of the companies are able to work only with one of them.
In conclusion, I hope that the information was useful and now you found that understanding shared hosting is not as difficult as it can seem in the beginning.
