What is web hosting?

Web Hosting Service is a type of Internet hosting service which allows individuals and organizations to make their website simple and accessible through the World Wide Web (www) i.e.Internet.

In simple language web hosting is a place where all the data of a website available and this data can be accessible in the world.

The way we all live on earth. To live here we need the land of ourselves or someone else. If we live in someone else's land or building, then we have to pay the rent.

In the same way, space is needed for a website and blog on the internet too. Which is called web hosting in the language of the internet.

Within this web hosting, all our posts, photos, files, videos etc. are saved around the world and it always active i.e. online.

Web Hosting is a company that provides space on the server on lease (rent) for the use of the client, as well as provides internet connectivity.

What is Shared Hosting?

As the name itself suggests, to share. In this kind of hosting, many other websites are kept on the same server.

Typically, all domain servers can share a common pool of resources, such as RAM and CPU.

The features available with this type of service may not be quite basic and flexible in terms of software and updates.

Reseller often sells only shared web hosting, which is why web companies often have reseller accounts to provide customer hosting.


Let us first tell you the advantage/Cons of shared hosting.


Shared web hosting is very easy to set up, on the contrary, dedicated hosting takes time in setup as well as technical knowledge is also required.

Your blog or website can be fully functional within minutes of purchasing shared hosting.

2. Less expense: Good option for beginners.

As the name suggests, in Shared Hosting, your website hosting is shared with many other blogs or websites, so shared hosting is much cheaper than other hosting options.

Apart from the price, you do not have to pay anything separately for its maintenance, everything is included in the purchase price itself.

So you do not need to take tension for maintenance and for this you do not have to pay anything separately.


Your web hosting is shared with other websites as well as the resources of your server are also shared. Shared hosting is a good option, as it does not require much resources to run small websites.


Let me tell you the disadvantages/pros of shared hosting.

1. Not good for big WEBSITES / Blogs.

Shared web hosting provides limited resources, therefore it is not a good option for websites or blogs that require a lot of resources and it can cause a lot of problems like it may take a lot of time in loading, it may say website is down etc.

If a website of that server also crashes, then other websites also have to face the consequences. If your website is large that needs more resources, then you should buy VPS or dedicated web hosting.

2. IP address are DYNAMIC

Normally not all web hosting companies provide you with a static IP address, so the problem can occur when you need a static IP.

This often happens with eCommerce sites. You can get a static IP from a web hosting company, but for this, companies charge extra money from you.


Security is another factor, which can be added to the disadvantages/pros of shared hosting, as there are many websites on the same server in shared hosting, the chances of the server getting hacked are equally increased. So, the maintenance and security of thousands of websites is at risk.

I hope that by reading this article, you will be able to decide whether shared hosting is the right choice for your website.
