What is the shared Hosting？
The shared hosting utilizes the specific software and hardware technologies and partitions one single host computer into several tiny “virtual” hosting which respectively owns the dedicated domain name， IP address （or shared IP address） and also the complete function of the Internet server. Dozens of server programs opened for different users are running upon the same hardware and operation system at the same time， and may not disrupt each other. And definitely， each user would obsess the corresponding resources on their own （like IP address， file space， internal storage and CPU time， etc. ）。
In general， the so-called “site space” has the similar meaning with the professional term “shared hosting”。 In today’s shared hosting market， even more and more hosting providers have been popped up， but most products’ qualities are still left far behind. Nowadays， almost every IDC company could basically offer the shared hosting rental service， but the performances and prices may vary greatly sometimes according to the room environments and the operation conditions of those enterprises instead. Therefore， how can we choose the shared hosting？
As for the shared hosting product， the stability always becomes the first concern. Without the stable server ‘s access environment， all effort would turn out to be in vain. In opposite， the stable， high-efficient shared hosting plan would enable all functions of the website to exert their full strengths， and finally bring the biggest benefits.
At the first stage， the website would have a relatively fast loading time with the deficient content and reviewers. But with the increasing website reputation and visits， the site speed would be obviously affected for the sake of the traffic restriction and the shared technology the plan adopted. So， when making your decision， you would better examine whether the shared hosting owns the stable and fast server’s resource configuration.
The shared hosting providers generally provide clienteles with the maintenance service. One way is that the customer could directly contact the support team of the provider to let the technicians do the maintenance work for you. And the second way is that the user of course could go to the built-in control panel to realize the adjustment by his own.
Despite the stability and speed， most medium-and-small size enterprises and website owners may consider the price as a key factor when choosing the shared hosting plan. In my opinion， you should straightly make your decision to your liking and the actual need， instead of purchasing the just popular one or the shared hosting plan that others always recommend.
