Shared web hosting is a type of hosting service that provides server resources to many different web sites through a single web server. Shared web servers are split into different sections, and each plan holder receives a set amount of resources that can be used to build and manage their site.
Shared web hosting plans are often the cheapest kind of hosting services available, primarily because the hosting company does not have to pay for additional web servers in order to provide hosting to more clients. Most webmasters start out with shared hosting because it is very affordable, and it accommodates all of the basic needs of any small to medium sized web site. Shared web hosting provides a cheap and comprehensive hosting plan with plenty of unlimited features that are perfect for the novice webmaster.
