A shared web hosting service refers to a web hosting service where other website users reside on one server connected to the Internet. Each site "sits" on its own partition, or placed on the shared server to keep it separate from other sites. This is generally the most economical option for cheap web hosting, as many people share the overall cost of server maintenance.

Question: How does Shared Web Hosting work?

With Shared Web Hosting one's website is placed on the same server as many other sites. The amount of sites on a shared server sometimes range from hundreds to even thousands. Typically all domains will share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and CPU. The available features could become quite extensive. A shared website, at times, may be hosted with a reseller.
