What’s Shared Hosting?

Shared hosting is web hosting where single sites get placed on a single server with other websites, all sharing RAM, CPU, storage, and bandwidth resources. 

These types of web hosting plans are typically the least expensive of the hosting options. Because of the sharing of resources across multiple websites, performance and security can also suffer.

For those just starting with a brand new site, shared hosting is a good starting point. The low cost is attractive but is only fit for static websites with not a lot of traffic.

What’s Managed hosting?

Managed hosting is when a hosting company handles the setup, administration, management, and support of a server and/or application.

Management services vary from host to host but typically include OS updates and patching, 24/7/365 support, network infrastructure, and hardware management, basic security measures including virus and spam protection, and monitoring and remediation of anything that could affect the performance of the server.

What conclusions can you infer about the shared hosting users and managed hosting users?
