What is Shared Web Hosting?

Shared Web Hosting is a perfect place to start your web hosting. It is the most affordable option and has many features to help you build and manage a website.

Our Shared Web Hosting servers come with SSD's (Solid State Drives). They are ideal if you need fast, secure, and affordable web hosting for your portfolio, personal site, or small business website.

When you get started with any of our Shared Web Hosting plans, your website will live on a server with other websites. You will receive your own cPanel account and a dedicated IP address. You also have the option to add cloud backups and our monitoring service to your account.

With solid uptime, multiple plans to choose from, and all server maintenance performed by Hostwinds Systems Administrators, Shared Web Hosting is an excellent choice for many different types of websites.

Do I need to have any technical experience or knowledge to get started with a Shared Web Hosting plan?

Technical knowledge is not required to use Shared Web Hosting. As soon as you order your service, we will send you your login details in addition to information about beginning your web hosting journey.

We also offer you 24/7/365 support through Live Chat or ticket to ensure we answer any questions you have along the way.

Once you receive your cPanel login details, you can begin managing all aspects of your website.
