Re: shared webhosting

That depends on your site.

If your site is as big as facebook.com or microsoft.com you would be quite unhappy using shared webhosting. But if your site gets 1 visitor a day, you would be unhappy to pay for your own server that's doing nothing most of the time.

The web world has changed.

With cloud computing and more, the old ideas are just that, Old. You will find a few non-cloud web hosts and in those cases, the old ideas apply. So what to do? There's a lot to learn today but since only you know your site and budget, only you can know what's better, So far, shared and sites in clouds work.

Shared hosting is good

until you outgrow it. It's kind of like comparing a small house to a big house. Neither one is really good or bad, it just depends on what you need or are looking for.

Shared web hosting

Shared hosting plans offer you resources in a shared manner, meaning dividing resources such as disk space and bandwidth between many clients. If you own a site in which you are sure that the CPU, bandwidth and disk space usage does not exceed the predefined thresholds by provider, shared hosting is the best choice for you to have a space with full support and reasonable price.It is important to protect your site from other clients’ resource deficiencies or outages by applying Isolated Application Pool (IAS) in IIS for each of clients’ sites.

It's depending from your hosting requirements

Shared web hosting is some sort of service.
You rent a piece of the server so you can put your website there, configure DNS nameservers and your hosting provider will do the rest. So you receive your working website and didn't have to know how the server works, what you have to do with the backups or if this server dies one time, so on. Well, it should be so at least Happy

The alternative is to rent your own server or probably virtual private server (VPS), configure it with the software needed and put your website on it. You can save some money, but you also will need to take care of your server, make backups, etc.

You can take a look here to see if it's too hard for you to install and configure the Linux server yourself. You can also use one of the popular web control panels to install and configure your server automatically.

The choice is up to you.

Hii

It depends on your website type and website traffic.if your website is in initial stage there is no more traffic on your website then shared hosting is a good choice.If you have a large number of visitors and your website is so popular then shared hosting is not the good choice.

so select your hosting carefully according to your requirement.

Good if you are a beginner

Hi Chandan,
Shared hosting is the cheapest web hosting service and is mostly preferred by those who are beginners because when you start a website, there is no much traffic on it. But if your website starts getting a huge amount of traffic then it could face downtime as shared hosting gives a limited amount of bandwidth to each website hosted on a single server and then shared hosting becomes the bad choice and you must have to move to VPS or dedicated hosting.

Good for new business

Depends on the purpose of your site and it traffic density.
Shared hosting is a good option for a new business coming to life on internet, and then you can upgrade it once your site is up and running while your shared server is making your site slower.

Answer
Shared hosting is better

It is always depends on the type of the website that you are trying to host. If it is just a blog then shared hosting is the best option. If you have e-commerce website then shared hosting can be used to host your e-commerce site but if your website needs to tweak some server settings then you should transfer your site from shared to VPS/Dedicated server.

Personally I advice you to go for shared hosting initially due to cost, performance and reliability.
