Shared Hosting is an entry-level web hosting product that is both the most popular and the least expensive, often attractive for small and medium businesses, blogs, portfolios and websites with moderate amounts of traffic. With Shared Hosting, multiple websites share a large server and its resources, including storage, bandwidth and disk space. With Shared Hosting, the web host is responsible for all of the server maintenance and upkeep. All of Aawa Consult Hosting's Business Hosting plans are Shared Hosting plans.
If you are new to web hosting or are creating a site with low to moderate amounts of traffic, Shared Hosting is likely the best option for you. It is the most affordable web hosting you can buy and will likely have more than enough resources for your site(s) to run quickly and efficiently. As your site grows and you experience increases in traffic and usage, it may be time to move up to Virtual Private Server Hosting, where you are given your own partition of a dedicated server. Finally, if you have a resource-intensive application or a site with a very high amount of traffic, you have the option of upgrading to your own Dedicated Server, which provides you with all of the server's resources and allows you to configure it any way you see fit.
Aawa Consult Hosting makes it easy for new web developers to get their sites up and off the ground. All of our Business Hosting plans come with Softaculous, an application installer that will allow you to download over 400 applications to help you with your website. These applications include, but are not limited to, Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, Online Marketplaces such as Prestashop, Magento and OpenCart, and many others. Shared Hosting is a perfect environment to develop and hone your programming skills and provides a number of tools for novices.
