Shared Hosting

Shared hosting is when a website is hosted on the same server as many other websites. Most web hosting companies provide shared hosting because it’s affordable and easy to set-up. It suits new sites which don’t have a lot of traffic in the short term.

Shared Hosting (includes our 2.5GB, 5GB, and 10GB plans) is much the same as living in an Apartment. The tenants are in the same place and must share the available resources with everyone including the laundry room, gym, park, and childcare center. All accounts must share the available resources with all the other accounts on the server. These include CPU time, memory, and disk space. Our System Administrators monitor all of our shared servers all the time.


VPS Hosting
Virtual Private Server Hosting (includes our 1GB, 2GB and 4GB RAM with extra vRAM) is similar to owning a Condo. While you still share things on the property, you are still responsible for maintaining and repairs inside your condo. So, only some resources are shared.

The overall CPU time and memory are shared across all accounts on the machine, however parts of those resources are assigned specially to each account. This allows for more power and variability than using a shared account.
