There are different types of web hosting providers that cover different requirements for all types of clients including operating system specifications such as Linux, Windows or UNIX hosting. These operating systems are used to run Web hosting products such as Shared, VPS, VDS, VPS Cloud or Dedicated hosting and are available to you.
Shared Web Hosting is where multiple web sites are hosted through a hosting service provider using a single web server or platform, whether it is free or paid. Shared hosting plans that come at no cost share the same domain name and create a subdomain for your site and make money by targeting external advertising to your site’s visitors. Free Shared Hosting sites tend to allow your site to only use minimal bandwidth.
When choosing a paid Shared Hosting plan, you are able to use your own domain name as well as personalised email accounts. This plan also allows you to use a better range of software and program languages such as MySQL, PHP, .NET, SQL, OpenCart, WordPress or Magento. More advanced Shared Hosting platforms provides a user interface for their clients which includes Plesk or CPanel which creates user friendly GUI interfaces to provide you with the most out of your hosting environment.
Shared Web Hosting solutions are ideal for hosting low to medium traffic informational sites or hosting small E-Commerce sites.
