Shared hosting?

Recommended Posts

thats the point of shard hosting, its cheap webhosting.

its just for hosting a website, You get no root access to the server, noting like that, just webhosting.

Depending on the host you could have root access..  Most of the time as dlewis pointed out the host is controlled through cPanel.  However, there are a few host out there that give you a semi-dedicated server.  They do this through vmWare.  So you have a virtual dedicated server.  Even at that your still only a fraction of the overall performance of the entire server.  One other thing.. If the server that you are hosted on goes under attack or what not your site will go with it also. :undecided:  So you might want to see if they have a uptime guarantee or how all of that is handled.

yea but you don't have true root access you are still very limited, And its a pain to get root access on a shard server you have to fax them a copy of your ID credit card then they may not even give it to you.

VPS's are good but they can get expensive, and you tend not to get very much most of the time in way of CPU and memory.  Its almost some times better to just go for the full dedicated server.
