HOSTWINDS GAVE TO ME…
A SHARED HOSTING PLAN WITH DEDICATED IP’S
Shared hosting is a popular choice for hosting, especially to those seeking hosting for the first time. While there are definitely advantages to choosing shared hosting, you should understand just what you’re getting with this type of hosting. It may or may not be ideal for your site, depending on a number of factors and whether your site is personal or business related.

What Exactly is Shared Hosting?
If your site is on shared hosting, that means your site is being ran from a server that also has other sites on it. The server’s resources are shared among the different clients and sites that are assigned to that server.
It’s the Cheapest Hosting Solution
Because many clients share the same server, the cost of running the server is split among the many users on that server (Note: be sure to read about overselling below!). The hosting provider can provide your hosting services at a cheaper rate than if you had an entire server and all of its resources dedicated to just your site. So price is obviously the leading factor for most people who choose to go with shared hosting.
It’s Easy to Use
Any good hosting company will have an easy to use interface in place for customers of shared hosting. You don’t have to worry much (if at all) about dealing with files, databases, ftp and the like. A few of the most popular technologies uses are cPanel and Softalicious.
The Experts Handle the Nitty Gritty
The server and the technologies uses are updated and maintained by the hosting company. So you can just work on your business and your site, not worry about everything under the hood running smoothly and ensuring your site doesn’t go down.
Another thing a good hosting company normally has in place is the ability to easily upgrade your hosting. As your business and your site grows, there will likely come a time when you have too much traffic or too many things happening on the site daily for a shared hosting environment. When it’s time to upgrade, to dedicated hosting for instance, you should be able do so easily and without any downtime.
Overselling – What Most Hosting Companies Don’t Tell You…
In a shared hosting environment, your site could be affected if something haywire happens with another site on the server. Sites on shared hosting can run slower than those on dedicated hosting, because the resources are being shared (quite possibly in real time) with other users on that server.
Another biggie with shared hosting is what’s called overselling. That is, the hosting company crams a ton of people onto each server to save on maintenance costs. This can easily cause your site to run slow or even crash and cause other problems.
Here at Hostwinds, we don’t believe this is fair for any customer. We never oversell spots on shared hosting because we want your site to be successful.
We have a strict maximum of 200 clients per server on shared hosting and will never allow more than that! We also have an upgraded shared hosting option called shared business hosting, which has a strict limit of 50 clients per server.
