  2. Several customers share each server, meaning that storage and computing resources are limited. Non Scalable Platform.
  3. If you are looking for higher uptime, shared hosting might disappoint you. Customers’ site speed is largely dependent on the performance of other websites on the same server. Downtime Faced.
  4. In shared hosting, there are higher chances your website is vulnerable to hackers. This is because once a hacker has access to the shared hosting server; it is easier to access other websites.
  5. Support is limited from the provider’s side due to huge number of customer base.

  2. Mostly affordable by Corporate or Big Enterprise. Very Costly.
  3. Topnotch Speed.
  4. Security is Customer Responsibility as the customer has complete control over the entire server.
