Web Hosting

Shared web hosting is an affordable, quick, and easy way for you to get your site online.  Inexpensive, reliable, and feature-filled!

What is shared hosting?

Shared web hosting is what most people mean when they refer to “web hosting”.  It simply means that many customers’ websites reside on a single web server, and that the server’s resources (CPU and RAM) are shared among every customer account on the machine.  Customers who do not need the flexibility of a Virtual Private Server or the performance of a Dedicated Server greatly benefit from what shared web hosting has to offer.  Feature-rich web hosting starts at just ==monthly_price==$8.95/month.

Who uses shared?

Shared hosting is an ideal solution for bloggers, website designers, e-commerce stores and small businesses.
