Shared Server Hosting Comparison

Shared server hosting is also commonly referred to as shared web hosting and is the most affordable type of web hosting and can range from as little as $3 dollars a month to as much as $40 or more per month. But just because a shared server plan is expensive it doesn't mean that it is any better or even as good as some of the more affordable ones available. That's why we have put together a Shared Server Hosting Comparison Matrix, so that you can evaluate each account based on their service offerings. We also have a more basic web hosting comparison that breaks down the shared web hosting plans into their simplest form.

What is the purpose of a Shared Server Hosting Comparison Matrix?

Each shared server hosting plan is outlined in the table below, broken down by hosting provider and shared hosting plan name if applicable, the price of the plan (usually broken down into monthly cost, since many of them are paid yearly), the amount of data transfer you are allowed under the web hosting plan (also kown as bandwidth), then the storage space you are allowed (this is where you store your html pages, pictures, videos and all the other files you may have for your websites), the operating system that the shared server is running and then the plan details which tell you if the plan has a common administration panel, the number of domains allowed, if you can add a dedicated IP address, etc..
