Benefits About Using a Shared Web Hosting Service

When I get questions about hosting websites I always recommend using a shared web hosting service for many reasons. I will try to point out a few good reasons to why you should use shared hosting in this article.

  • Shared hosting is cheap, only a few bucks per month.
  • You don’t have to worry about up-time, that is all taken care of.
  • You get great tools to manage your website.
  • Set up Email accounts
  • Host more than one domain on the same account
  • Easy set-up tools for WordPress or Joomla! blogs
  • Easy set-up for forums
  • Support for PHP and MySql, includes free MySql databases!

These are just a few things that I know most shared hosting services provide to their users, and not to mention the cPanel tool that you control everything with. I mentioned up-time before and for those of you who don’t know what that is, I will try to shortly explain it for you.

Up-time is the over all time the hosting company promises that their servers will be up and running. Some claim to have 100% up-time, but I find that to be almost impossible to have so I tend to go with the ones claiming a 99,9% up-time. This tells us that even though they take back-ups, have mirrored servers and all other stuff to keep the servers safe and running, there is always a small possibility that the servers can go down.

I also mentioned cPanel. This is the control panel tool for maintaining the entire hosting account. Here you can add more domains, set up email accounts, install CMS like WordPress, Joomla! etc. You can also see how much of your “spave” you are currently using, see when you use shared hosting you get a certain area of space that you can use for your websites, but don’t worry, if you run a normal website with text, images and maybe a few videos you will have plenty of space.

But I think the best thing about this type of hosting is that it is very quick and easy to set things up. You will be up and running in no time at all, starting to build your online empire!

So to sum this up, I choose shared web hosting services whenever I can because it’s cheap, fast, easy to use and I don’t have to worry about the technical stuff at all.
