The Cheapest Option

On occasion, the cheapest option is still a good option, especially when you’re just starting out. In the initial stages of launching a web presence, or refreshing what you already have, until your website builds momentum, opting for the lowest priced option is a smart business decision. Though Shared Hosting is our cheapest plan, it’s still packed with features to improve your website and the experience of your users. 

Software And Configurations Are Not Needed

If you do not need specific software or configurations then Shared Hosting is perfect for you. Some installable software requires root — which gives the user authorization to access all resources and execute any command — or more CPU usage than allowed on Shared Hosting. However, if you’re just starting out or don’t require specific elements, the easy setup and use of Shared Hosting will be the best choice for launching your web presence.

Low Server Resource Use Is Okay

Most small businesses, when starting out on the web, only need a small informational website to help build awareness and nurture leads. Further, when first launching a website, traffic will probably be low until the site gains rank on search engines. Because of this, a new or small website will probably not overuse server resources and will do well with a Shared Hosting account. Overuse of server resources can disturb your server neighbors and result in account action or a recommendation to upgrade to a VPS or Dedicated server

Root Access Not Needed

Installing WordPress or BoldGrid, or applying basic coding like HTML or CSS does not require root access and can be easily done with the basic setup of a Shared Hosting account. Email, basic security methods like ModSecurity, Sucuri, and SSL certificates also do not require root access and can be applied quickly without needing to have extensive knowledge and know-how. Unless you need root access to install specific software or configurations, Shared Hosting is the perfect start. 

No matter if you’re trying to establish a web presence or refresh an existing website, if you’re a small business or have a small website, Shared Hosting is perfect for you. Without the need to apply advanced configurations or settings, you will be able to quickly and easily set up your email and launch your website.
