Shared Webhosting

Since the shared server, also known as shared host (from the English "split" or "shared"), is the most common of them, let's start here. The significance of this type of service is even in its name. The web hosting company maintain a server, or computer, with a space and resources that are shared by a number of small users of the service.

As the vast majority of personal websites or small business use a space that rarely exceeds 5Gb or 10Gb, the vast majority of shared servers end up being divided between 100 customers or more. These customers also do not run complex applications, with many requests made to databases, that's why they do not need servers with special or fully dedicated resources.

This is a cheap and relatively limited service, but ideal for those using simple websites, HTML/CSS, or work with light personal and business websites in WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and other CMS systems running on PHP and Apache (which are a standard on shared servers).
