What Is Shared Hosting?
Shared hosting is like having an office in a skyscraper. While you conduct your business in your private rooms, you have no idea what your neighbors are up to. If the server is not properly set up, this can lead to all kinds of security issues as each hosting plan can affect the others. Such as listening through walls(data scraping) or even climbing through the windows to enter your space(back door access).
At TFA Web Design, we have teamed up with one of the leading networks and hosting providers to ensure our hardware and software are top notch. Each of our shared hosting plans is placed inside its own container on the shared server. This is like making each office in our proverbial skyscraper its own private panic room. While it’s impossible to protect against 100% of all attacks, we make it our priority to ensure our client’s data is as safe as humanly/technologically possible.
To do this our in-house network administrators work very closely with our partners to ensure that our clients are presented with the latest and most up to date hardware and software available to meet their web projects needs.
Why Choose Shared Hosting
There are many reason why people choose to go with a Shared Hosting plan over the more secure and robust VPS or Dedicated server options. The list could go on for miles. However, here at TFA Web Design, we have found that the majority of times the core reason for a people choosing a Shared plan falls into one of two areas.
Availability of Funds
Project scope &Needs
Shared Hosting is a very cheap option when compared to other hosting alternatives. Compare the difference to renting a small room in our skyscraper vs. leasing the entire building. While having the whole building to yourself may sound like an ideal situation, the costs of doing so are far greater.
