Shared hosting is the most widely used type of website hosting, and is also the easiest to begin with. It is a service where one hosting server is divided among lots of web hosting users who are restricted by the CPU, web traffic and web content space quotas that they have been assigned.
This type of website hosting is normally less expensive – you don’t need to buy the entire web server in advance, as it is shared among many web hosting customers, and the hosting provider can afford to provide much more modest prices. It is also easier to use – the web hosting server is pre-configured with all the required software and the web hosting distributor takes care of all server maintenance procedures and security updates for you.
The disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that you share the web hosting server’s resources with other hosting account holders and if a given site becomes really popular it may influence (and slow down) the rest of the sites on that web server, but most web hosts, including NTC Hosting, have protection systems in place that obstruct that from taking place.
