About Shared Hosting

Shared hosting is a term used when you get the chance to share the same server with many other websites.  This creates an economy of scale for your own individual sites that you have written with your own content. It also applies to a small business and a medium sized business with their own sites, providing the demands of these sites fall within the capacity requirements of the server that acts as the “mothership” for all the sites using this service.

The capacity requirements provided by the server for each website linked to the server are usually much larger than the criteria each shared website will ever need. The main benefit with regard to cost of using the server is all the websites that are sharing the hosting service of the one server are able to split the administration costs. This allows the server to provide the functions that the websites use to maintain their presence on the internet at a low cost.

Added Extras with Your Cheap Hosting Package

If you have an account that allows you to have other domain names within the same account, you will be able to manage them all through the cheap hosting package, making it great for allowing you to keep an eye on all your web sites.  This is of particular benefit for people involved in web design or for people who have a number of web sites.

Speed of set-up is normally very quick, you should find all your account login details arriving in your in-box after less than 5 minutes, and your FTP functions will then be accessible immediately.

Knowing how many visitors you have had is always useful for marketing, and the hosting provider should have a system in place to allow you to monitor numbers of visitors to your site.

Because of the competition for web hosting, a company should offer you a no quibble, money back guarantee, letting you try the service out without worrying about being tied to the service.
