Web hosting reviews are best on a number of different factors, broken down into Price, Storage space for your web site, Bandwidth (the data transfer from your site to a visitors computer) the additional add-ons such as PHP and MySQL, Customer service, the number of domain names you are allowed to host under the one account, and if they offer you a free domain name with your hosting plan (usually this will require a yearly contract).
Shared web hosting reviews are reviews of a specific product offering from a hosting provider. Why is Shared web hosting so cheap? Well because hosting providers can place a large number of clients all on the same web server which saves them a lot of overhead. It is not uncommon to find a server with hundreds if not thousands of web sites running off of it. Since all of the sites use the same resources such as PHP and Apache it is very common practice not to allow administrator level access to a shared web hosting account and if you are running a standard web site without any custom applications this should not be an issue; however if you need to run any specific software applications that require special privileges or custom settings you may have to upgrade to a VPS (Virtual private server) or even a dedicated server. This page has web hosting reviews of shared web hosts.
