    A shared hosting plan hosts multiple accounts on a single dedicated IP address. They are usually used to save costs and space for hosting. Shared hosting is not very recommendable as they do not provide data security as the same space and IP address is shared between multiple clients.

    Advantages of shared hosting

    One of the main advantages of shared hosting, which has led to it being such a popular option for smaller businesses, is its affordability. Shared hosting is considerably cheaper than a dedicated hosting service, thanks to the fact that you are sharing server space with a number of other websites.

    Another reason shared hosting is popular with businesses making their first steps online is the technical support and customer service it comes with. If you’re setting up your first website, chances are you won’t have much knowledge and experience, so it can be a major advantage to have an expert team who are on hand to answer any questions and deal with any issues you might have.

    Disadvantages of shared hosting


    Naturally, one of the main disadvantages of shared hosting is that you are sharing space on a server, rather than having your own dedicated server. This can lead to limited space and bandwidth, which in turn can lead to slower loading times, especially if other websites on the same server experience spikes in traffic. However, if you choose a reliable hosting company, this should not be a major issue.
