Shared Hosting

What is Shared Hosting and will it work for me?

Shared Hosting is generally accepted as the most cost effective hosting platform available. This is where there are a number users on one server or network of servers sharing resources. Shared Hosting is normally used for small to medium websites where high ongoing server resources are NOT required. Shared hosting does not need to be slow, but this depends on the server/s used and or power allocated to the server/s if they are set up in a virtual environment.

Servers used for the IDS Hosting Shared Local Hosting are super fast due to 24 powerful CPU's, 34gb memory and SSD drivers. SSD Drives are extremely fast latest technology hard drives with no mechanical moving parts and fetch and carry data many times faster than a mechanical hard drive. Due to the immensely powerful servers used, the IDS Hosting Shared products continue to work through thick and thin. Try it for yourself!

Shared Hosting has evolved significantly over the years, and it is now a stable, reliable, and cost-effective solution for most website applications. However, it may not be suitable for every occasion and script. Shared Hosting is mostly used for entry-level projects, but it can also be used for some large sites and applications.

For an online business showcasing its products with a contact form, a shared hosting environment can remain comfortable and efficient for its entire lifetime. It is also scalable, allowing for growth, and IDS Hosting offers an overage facility for additional space usage.

As the online business grows, the website, database, and email server may require more power, memory, space, custom server settings, dedicated IPs, higher levels of security, and a larger VPS infrastructure. At this point, the hosting provider might approach the online business and recommend a better solution than the shared environment.

For Business Entrepreneurs who are serious about managing risk and staying online no matter what, we recommend the Business Hosting Package. It is a one-stop-shop that offers everything needed, from a shared environment initially to a bolt-on approach that can be easily set up and configured as business conditions change.
