How does shared hosting work
When you sign up for shared hosting, the web hosting service provider will create an account for you on the shared server. You will typically receive login credentials to access a control panel, which will provide tools to manage your website. Here, you can upload files, create email accounts, and install applications like WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal to create and manage your website. You can also monitor your website's traffic, check website statistics, and modify your website's settings via the control panel.
However, as multiple websites share server resources, the performance of your website will be affected by other websites on the same server. A website with high traffic may consume more resources and create bottlenecks that can affect other websites on the server. To counterbalance resource usage, some web hosting providers may use CloudLinux Operating System or other tools that assign fixed resources to each customer, ensuring that individual websites do not gain more than their fair share of the server resources.
