If you’re thinking about using a shared hosting plan for your next website, think twice. Today I will explain why you should not choose shared hosting by showing you the 5 main drawbacks and dangers of shared hosting.
1. Low Speed
The first common disadvantage of shared hosting is Low Speed. If you choose a shared hosting plan for your website, it is going to be pretty slow in comparison with what you could get with managed hosting. If you are trying to grow your beauty blog or construction business online, shared hosting provided speed will surely harm your website’s performance and brand reputation. Your slow website will affect your visitors’ conversions and lower your search rankings.
2. Bad Security
Next comes Bad Security. With shared hosting, you are going to be affected by the neighboring websites. You and a bunch of other unknown websites respectfully share a common space in a single server. And if one of the websites on this single server is getting hacked, your website will be compromised as well.
3. Lack of Scalability
The third drawback is the Lack of Scalability. In shared hosting, because you share all the resources with other users, your traffic cannot exceed a certain level without having bad neighborhood effects on others.
This is why if you unexpectedly exceed a certain amount of visitors per month you have to take into account that your website might lose speed or experience downtime. You’re basically stuck with whatever your plan’s settings are unless you upgrade manually. Which indeed, can cost you considerably more.
4. Poor Customer Support
The fourth danger is Poor Customer Support. Most shared hosting platforms rely heavily on automated tools and generic questions to serve a large client base. If by any chance, you encounter a unique problem, it will take a while until it’s solved. And everyone knows that in business time is money, so a critical issue that takes a lot of time to solve may uproot your reputation in the market.
5. Control Panel Problems
When you cannot design your own control panel and use that of the free web hosting services, this is good for personal and non-monetizing websites but is no good for websites that are going to be grown rapidly and you aim to monetize and establish as a web media technological business. Thus, it is also important that you need full control over the website for preventing hacking of your website and administration issues, which will enable you to decide how much freedom that you can allow for different kinds of users, and you having the entire control. This will not happen in a free web hosting service, where the site administration is managed by someone else, and you are not given full control.
In such scenarios, there is little that can be done except watch and wait. Enough of negativity, let’s end with a positive note,10Web is our next reason why you should not choose shared hosting.
