What is Shared Hosting?

Shared hosting is, by definition, a hosting model in which a set of web pages have shared access to a set of resources on the server. In this case, the storage capacity is divided among all users, including RAM, CPU, and the physical machine (which serves as the base). Every web page hosted on a shared server has its own domain and its content is stored in an individual partition within the available disk space. This ensures that different users can carry out independent projects despite sharing the same hardware platform. This type of web hosting has a great impact on reducing costs, which has made it an especially popular solution. Next, we present the pros and cons of shared hosting and show how it differs from free hosting offers, dedicated servers and own servers.
