Perfect Hosting



Shared hosting is a type of Internet hosting intended mainly for websites, in a technical environment whose main characteristic is to be shared by several users. This architecture is suitable for sites of low or medium importance and audience, soliciting only occasionally the resources of the server (s) hosting (CPU, RAM, disk space, throughput).

The main resources of the server characterizing shared hosting are, depending on the case:

  • Maximum RAM allocated;
  • CPU power, in percent or units;
  • Disk space ;
  • Authorized web traffic (cumulative bit rate over a given period, usually month);
  • Maximum bandwidth (instantaneous rate);
  • IP address (usually shared);
  • Operating system (Linux most often, but also Windows).

Since the cost is directly proportional to the resources allocated, the latter is generally lower than that of dedicated hosting; Some hosts even offer free solutions. On the other hand, when it comes to private or virtual servers, the cost depends on additional parameters such as:

  • The guaranteed level of resources allocated to each client on the shared infrastructure
  • The type of tools and logical layers implemented for the fragmentation of the infrastructure into dedicated systems sealed from each other.
  • The reliability of the solution with fully managed resources and under the legal responsibility of the supplier.
  • Technical availability (thanks to the server administration by the host).
