Web hosting is the activity or business of providing storage space and access for websites. For example, when you create a website or any other content that you want to be accessed by other users on the internet, you have to buy a web hosting plan, to upload your files on the web server (a very fast computer optimized to deliver content and connected to a very fast network). Then when someone types in a web address in their browser, such as https://servercrib.com the internet connects the web server with the visitors computer and they transfer files. This way your visitors can surf trough your website content.
Shared hosting, also sometimes referred to as virtual hosting, is a web hosting environment where each individual hosting account is stored on a single web server. Think of a web server as a very powerful computer loaded with resources. Each of the accounts on the server shares the server’s system resources. These resources include disk space, data transfer and server processing power.
Shared Hosting offers you an affordable solution to get your web site up and running because all the related server hosting costs are shared and spread out among the other users/accounts who are being hosted on that server.
There is actually no difference between the two. Rather Shared Hosting is a type of Web Hosting service.
Shared Hosting is an affordable solution perfect if you have a small blog, a personal website with minimal traffic or if you are launching a new website. At Servercrib, our Shared Hosting is user-friendly making it ideal for both new and experienced users, regardless of resource needs.
If Shared Hosting doesn’t sound like it will fit your needs, we offers wide range of other Web Hosting options including:
- Dedicated Server Hosting – This type of service is designed for websites with the most intensive resource needs. With Dedicated Hosting, only your files, websites, databases and email are hosted on the server. You don’t share the server with any other users.
- VPS Hosting – A virtual private server (VPS) falls between Shared and Dedicated Servers. With a VPS, you are hosted on a server shared with other users. However, through the use of virtualization, your account is partitioned off from those other users.
- Reseller Hosting – This service is perfect if you’re looking to start your own hosting company or are looking to host customer websites of your own. You can also sign up for Reseller Hosting if you’d like to have a separate cPanel control panel for each of your websites.
Web Hosting is absolutely essential If you would like to have a website published online for the world to see. A common thought is that registering a domain name is all that is needed to have your website online. Yes, a domain name is an important part of the process as this is the address your visitors will type into their browsers to access your site. Web Hosting, on the other hand, is what makes it possible for your web site to be accessed by your visitors.
Web hosting is essentially the space you buy on a server that stores all the pieces that make up your websites. Once you your website is hosted by Servercrib, your visitors will be able to access your site by typing your domain name into their internet browser. Their computer is then connected with the server where your site is being hosted. The server then delivers the files that comprise your website to your visitors’ browsers so they can view your site.
Shared hosting is a perfect platform if you have modest website needs. In particular, this means if you are just starting a website, have a small business website or just run a website as a hobby with minimal resource needs. Shared Web Hosting is also a popular option if you run a simple blog or forum. In short, Shared Hosting is ideal if you have small websites or are just getting started since it is a good learning environment to get your “ feet wet” with a minimal investment.
Shared Hosting is also a popular option if you don’t quite know what sort of resources you need yet. You’ll be happy to learn that Severcrib customers never pay account upgrade fees. That means you can upgrade to a larger Shared Hosting account or even move into a VPS or a Dedicated Server if you discover more server resources are needed than what is included with your Shared Hosting account. Of course, our 24/7/365 Guru Crew Support Team is standing by in case you have any questions about which web hosting plan you should choose.
Advantages of Shared Web Hosting
At Servercrib, a key advantage of our Shared Web Hosting packages is obviously speed. However, the other pros of these plans include affordability and convenience. Our shared web hosting environment means we can offer reasonably priced web hosting plans because our customers are not only sharing server resources, but they are also spreading the cost of hardware, server maintenance, security updates and other costs among the other customers hosted on the server. As a Servercrib shared web hosting customer, you also do not have to worry about server uptime and technical support because that’s our job. That’s our expertise!
Our Shared Web Hosting packages each come with large amounts of resources like disk space, data transfer and email accounts that are perfect for your personal and small business websites. These are just a few of the reasons why we offer the best web hosting for small businesses and personal sites.
Possible Disadvantage of Shared Hosting
Please note that each account on a shared server does not feature root access. Users looking for administrative level access to their server should consider using our VPS Hosting or Dedicated Server plans. Additionally, customers who have eCommerce sites or existing websites that receive a large number of visitors each month may want to use VPS Hosting as well. Otherwise, you’ll discover that Servercrib Shared Hosting is an excellent solution for your website.
We highly recommend that you select our Super Web Hosting package. Our Super plans load sites up to 20X faster compared to competing web hosting solutions. Why does website speed and page load times matter? Your site speed has a direct impact on your conversion rate. In fact, studies have shown that a mere 1-second delay in page load speed drops your conversion rate by 7%. That’s a lot! Our Super Servers can give you the boost your site needs!
Even if you don’t sell anything on your site, you should care about your site’s speed. After all, a slow page also negatively impacts your bounce rate and your visitor satisfaction rate. Not only that, but site speed is included in search engine ranking algorithms. That means your faster site can get a rank boost over competing slower sites.
While we recommend our Turbo servers to all users, we understand if you’re not quite ready for that level of service. To decide between our lower or middle-tier hosting packages, you will want to consider what your resource needs are. In particular, you will want to consider how many websites you plan on hosting on your package. If you plan on hosting more than 1-site, our middle-tier web hosting package should suit your needs quite well. If you only plan on hosting a single website, our lower-tier web hosting solution would be a good option for you.
Remember that our Web Hosting solutions are completely scalable. That means we’ll have a Web Hosting solution perfect for you even as your site and your resource needs grow.

Why is site speed so important? Your visitor satisfaction rate, bounce rate and most importantly your conversion rate are all directly impacted by your page load speed.
