Shared Hosting And Its Drawbacks

April 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 128

Even though a user will have to share a server with countless of other websites in a server, they do not mind about it and choose to opt for this kind of hosting. I am referring to the shared hosting. Shared hosting is the most common type of hosting used by webmasters out there today. The obvious advantage that someone could get by using a shared hosting service would be the cheap hosting cost. The huge amount of users using this kind of hosting does not mean that it is the best though. In fact, there are many drawbacks that you will have to suffer when you use shared hosting. Therefore, you need to assess your needs before you decide on the type of hosting that you should go for.

Like what the name implies, this type of hosting will require you to share a server with other websites. This means you will get less sever resources and capabilities for your website because all of the other websites will require their resources from the server as well. In a shared hosting, all of the websites located in the server will share the same IP address. The IP address is very important because it will be used for the search engines. This means that you face the possibility of getting de-indexed by the search engine if any one of the website in the same IP address gets de-indexed. If any one of the website is performing an illegal activity, your website will be implicated as well. In most cases, it will be shut down completely. This type of thing does not happen every day but it will happen once in a while.

With shared hosting, you will also be given less priority when it comes to customer support. Hosting providers will tend to attend to their higher paying customers and they are most likely to be dedicated server clients. So, you will have to wait longer most of the time in order to convey your issue to the customer support team. Any shared hosting user will be able to tell you that they had to wait for long period of time when they get support from their customer support and this can very frustrating.

Then, there is also an issue with the performance of the website. With a shared hosting, your site performance will not be great and this gets worse if you have a lot of files in your website. This will lead to slow loading pages which will frustrate your visitors. This can also lead to downtime because you don't have a lot of server resources at your disposal. Pages may freeze when the bandwidth is consumed heavily as well. From a visitor's point of you, this is not good at all.

For anyone who is planning to start a website for an online business, they should really consider all these drawbacks so that they know what they are up against if they choose a shared hosting service.
