What is Shared Hosting?
Just as the name implies, Shared Hosting means that multiple websites, often thousands of them, are hosted on a single server maintained by the hosting provider. Shared hosting is easily the most cost-effective and most economical hosting solution that Reclaim Hosting offers.
A shared hosting plan provides the user with space on a shared server for an annual fee and is granted an allotment of the server’s total available resources depending on the hosting plan purchased. A single account, or cPanel, can include multiple sites, so long as the total account doesn’t exceed the user’s allotted space on the server.
Reclaim Hosting is responsible for providing customer support, maintaining server infrastructure and software, including security protocols and updates, and safeguarding against crashes and downtime. The end-user, on the other hand, is responsible for setting up and running their own sites. Shared Hosting isn’t for every project or end-user, but this kind of inexpensive hosting can help individual students and faculty members, nonprofit organizations, institutional departments, and independent creatives get a web presence quickly – even if funding is tight.
