Although it may not necessarily be appropriate in a shared hosting environment, there is a reason why shared hosting is the most common. This is the most affordable option available for paid hosting solutions. Most individuals, small businesses, medium-sized companies and moderate traffic locations will thrive in a shared hosting environment.
Web hosting is a very competitive industry, so it’s common to find hosts who offer affordable packages with many jobs. Some advantages include below:
- Price: Monthly prices are very affordable, and you often get a higher discount if you pay lump sums for the whole year.
- Extensibility: Most hosts have a variety of packages. The small package comes with less disk space and bandwidth allocations, and can contain minimal additional features. Then, there are usually graduated packages that include additional features at a higher price. You can choose the minimum package that you can leave and then update as your site grows.
- Features: Most hosts these days have wide options in features that adapt to everyone’s needs. This is often a one-click installation of common scripts that will add functionality to your website. Forums, blogs, chat, calendars, and more are examples of scripts that can be included in your package.
