What is Shared Hosting?

Shared hosting, also referred to as virtual web hosting, is a web hosting environment where individual hosting accounts are stored on a single web server, all of which share the same system resources like disk space, data transfer and server processing power. It offers a very affordable way to get your web site up and running because all the related server hosting costs are shared and spread out among the other users on the physical machine.

Is Shared Web Hosting Right For Me?

Shared hosting is a perfect platform for those that have modest hosting needs, particularly businesses and hobbyists with smaller websites, blogs or forums. It is also perfect for those who are brand new to web server hosting because it is a good learning environment to get your “ feet wet” with a minimal investment.

A shared web hosting package is a great starting point if you’re looking to launch a new website or project and are not quite sure how much space or traffic it will require. Rackuniverse customers never pay account upgrade fees, meaning you can easily move up to a VPS or to a dedicated hosting account if you discover more server resources are needed than what is found with your shared host account.

Shared Web Hosting Account Management

All RackUniverse shared hosting accounts are pre-installed with the user-friendly and award-winning cPanel control panel. cPanel is loaded with everything you’ll need for easy management of your shared hosting account. As a shared host customer, not only does a shared host customer experience convenient, speedy account set up, but cPanel can get your website up and running within minutes.

Softaculous is particularly helpful in getting your software up and running fast. You can install a number of the web’s most popular software solutions like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla with the click of your mouse. That means you don’t have to worry about download or setup files!

Your cPanel control panel includes intuitive features including:

  • File management
  • Database administration – Easily manage your MySQL databases with phpMyAdmin
  • Domain administration – Create and edit subdomains as well as manage your addon domains
  • Email – Add email accounts, setup fowarders, manage your email lists and more
  • Statistics – Includes Awstats, Webalizer and more

Advantages of Shared Web Hosting

At RackUniverse, the advantages of our shared web hosting packages are obviously speed. However, the other pros of these plans include affordability and convenience. Our shared web hosting environment means we can offer reasonably priced hosting plans because our customers are not only sharing server resources, but they are also spreading the cost of hardware, server maintenance, security updates and other factors among all customers on the server. As an RackUniverse shared server hosting customer, you also do not have to worry about server uptime and technical support because that’s our job. Our shared web hosting packages come with an abundant amount of resources like disk space, data transfer and email accounts that are perfect for personal and small business websites.

Possible Disadvantage of Shared Hosting

Please note that each account on a shared server does not feature root access. Users looking for administrative level access should certainly consider our VPS Hosting plans.
