What is Shared Hosting?
With shared hosting, there will be multiple sites using the resources of a single server. Usually, you’ll be partitioned a certain amount of server resources your site can utilize. Typically, shared hosting plans are some of the most affordable plans out there. When you have a shared web hosting plan, you’ll have access to a certain portion of server resources, defined by the hosting company you end up choosing. You’ll typically have access to the server environment through an integrated control panel. Shared hosting is also very beginner friendly, as server maintenance and any other necessary tasks are managed by the hosting company. The only thing you’re responsible for is your own website.

How does shared hosting work?
With shared hosting, multiple sites share the same hardware and software resources of a single physical server. Typically, a shared server has pre-installed scripts and software that every site on the server must utilize. Think of it this way. Say there’s an apartment building that has dozens of apartments. Each apartment is a different website. But, the building’s resources like utilities and other apartment benefits are shared by each individual.
