What is hosting?

Before we dive into our all new shared hosting, let’s go over a brief introduction to hosting. To some people, hosting is a complex system of tech jargon and acronyms they don’t want to touch with a ten-foot pole, and to others hosting is a new adventure they’re excited to jump into. When we break it down from the top, hosting is what allows your website to be seen by others on the Internet. You buy server space from a web host company like 101domain, where you can store your website. When a visitor tries to access your site, all the necessary data is sent from the web server to that visitor’s device. That is how your site becomes publicly available!

Why choose shared hosting?

There are many different hosting options to choose from. At 101domain we offer shared hosting and website builders. Shared hosting offers many benefits. In order to understand these key benefits, you should understand how shared hosting works. Imagine sharing hosting as the apartment building you live in. It’s one large building (a server) where hundreds of tenants (websites) live. Since you are sharing resources with your neighbors it keeps the costs low.
You still have access to all of the resources you need but you are sharing with other websites which means sometimes there is a limitation on traffic and other resources as compared to other hosting solutions. But generally, if you are new to hosting, or this is your first time creating a website, shared hosting is your best bet.
