Shared hosting is a form of Web hosting that allows numerous websites to utilize the same physical Web server and its resources. Shared hosting logically splits a Web server to handle, host, and operate numerous websites.
Shared hosting is one of the most popular and common types of Web hosting. It is often offered by Web hosting companies, who typically have many web servers on location. Each website’s logical partition/space is created on the Web server that hosts data for that site only upon signup with the provider. Other websites are also hosted on the same Web server
Shared hosting is a good fit for smaller websites with less web traffic, limited security risks, and limited budget for hosting needs.
