What is shared hosting? You share your web site content with somebody? This is initial presumption when one first hears the name, but no. Your website content is completely protected in an isolated user account, it's just that your hosting account is on a web server where other clients are also accommodated. This enables your hosting accounts provider to offer you a cheaper price without actually lowering the quality of the web hosting service, as each user account can avail of a particular amount of resources on the shared hosting web server.

Picking Your Hosting Vendor

When looking for a shared hosting service, however, you should not consider solely the price. Confirm whether your future web hosting vendor provides day-to-day backups, access to a hosting Control Panel software tool and details about the datacenters. A 24/7 support service is available? Check the reaction times if there is a live chat or a phone support service, check how your queries are being replied to, and you will be able to comprehend whether they are pros or if they are just looking to earn profit swiftly and easily. The availability of a round-the-clock customer support service is extremely important, because it implies that there is constantly someone taking care of all the services and that if a problem crops up, it will be quickly resolved.
