    Advantages and Disadvantages of shared hosting

    Shared hosting plans are cheaper than other types of web hosting plans because the cost is shared among many similar clients or end users.
    Clients can pay for only what they need and upgrade their plans when their needs grow.
    It isn't necessary to know a lot about web hosting to get started with a basic website using a shared web hosting account.
    Web hosts pre-install server software and updates and (usually) control panels.
    Clients aren't responsible for server maintenance.

    Disadvantages of shared hosting

    Clients typically have limits on disk space, monthly bandwidth, and other resources such as CPU, RAM, and i/o.
    Because the resources are shared, some problems with one site can affect other sites on the same server.
    Root access is not available with shared hosting accounts.
    Sometimes it can be a difficult or impossible task to make and restore backups.
    Spammers on the same server could get the I.P. you are sharing blacklisted, resulting in having trouble sending email to some people.
    As the software versions you have are shared you normally have to stick with the latest Stable version which can sometimes cause issues when trying to use newer features of scripting languages.
    If the administrator of your shared hosting platform decides to make an upgrade to some system software, this can sometimes cause issues with your code / scripts if they are not compatible.
