The world of web hosting is vast. Every hosting company offers a lot of the same, but slightly different. So how do you know what's what? This guide will work to explain one common hosting option. Hostwinds offers our Shared Web Hosting Overview.
Shared hosting, in general, is when a single physical server is set up to be used by multiple separate tenants or clients. This is typically accomplished by setting up individual pieces of that server into sub-accounts. It is commonly compared to renting an apartment in an apartment building. Hostwinds chooses to use cPanel to give our clients the ability to manage their web hosting accounts in an easy-to-use interface.
Shared hosting includes many benefits, as well as some drawbacks. For starters, a shared hosting plan is much less expensive than an option, as the cost for the server is shared among many clients. It also saves money by sharing the cost of various license costs, as well. cPanel, for instance, can cost up to $40 per month to license by itself.
There are drawbacks, as well. Shared hosting typically comes at the cost of reduced overall performance available to each tenant. This can be just fine in many different use cases, though. It takes very little processing power to support basic HTML-based sites or non-complex web apps.
Hostwinds offers Shared Web Hosting plans. All Shared Web Hosting plans at this level share the same performance. That is, they all have the same amount of RAM, CPU limits, etc. The only difference between the Basic, Advanced and Ultimate plans are as follows:
Our Shared Web servers feature CloudLinux-powered cPanel accounts that provide maximum performance and security throughout. Login details are sent upon successful purchase to the registration email on file. Furthermore, we offer one-click logins from the Client Area management page for your service.
