FAQs About DreamHost Shared Web Servers
What is Shared hosting?
Web hosting is simply a computer (server) that allows you to publish your website on the internet for the world to see. A hosting provider, also called a web host, rents server space to its customers. When users are on your website, all of your site’s data travels from the web host to your user’s browser. Make sense?
Shared Hosting is a particular type of web hosting service where websites share the same physical server with many other users, effectively reducing the cost of hosting. While shared hosting shares resources, like cpu, ram, bandwidth and disk space, your files are protected and isolated from others.
It all comes down to resources. In a Shared hosting environment resources are shared amongst all websites on that web server. With VPS hosting, resources are shared across the web server, but specific resources are yours and no one else can use them.Learn More
