Shared Hosting

Shared servers – General Information: Hosting designed such that your website is hosted on a server with several others. This is an entry-level solution and therefore the least expensive web hosting option. Web Hosting is an attractive choice if you are just getting started, don’t have any technical knowledge, or if you’re on a tight budget.

However, depending on your host, this may expose you to security risks and your site may be affected by heavy traffic from other sites. For better performance check out our Virtual Server Hosting.
