Shared hosting is web hosting in which the service provider serves pages for multiple websites, each having its own domain name, from a single server (techtarget.com). Cloud hosting is based on innovative Cloud computing technologies that allow unlimited number of machines to act as one system. A shared hosting site depends on one machine only, while cloud hosting security is guaranteed by many servers (siteground).
According to the website http://www.whoishostingthis.com/hosting-reviews/ , SiteGround is the best web hosting site. It provides shared hosting and cloud hosting and is a great option because it is used widely by WordPress users, something I find myself using almost everyday. There are three packages that a person can get, from StartUp, to GrowBig to GoGeek. The cheapest option is $3.95/mo.
iPage is the second best hosting site, with an intro offer that starts at $1.99/mo. What’s special about this hosting site is that it gives the user unlimited disk space, unlimited email accounts, unlimited domain names, a free tutorial and free domain for 1 full year. If I were to choose, I’d lean more towards this one because it’s meant for beginners.
Bluehost is considered to be the number one host provider for people who us WordPress. BlueHost provides a99.9% uptime guarantee and offers three plans called Starters Plan, Plus and Business Plan. The lowest price option is $4.95/mo. However, the hosting site offers a free domain for just the first year, even if you sign up for a longer term plan. The renewal rate after the first year is up to $15.99.
