Now that you’ve purchased your Linux shared hosting account, you’re probably anxious to
get started and set it up. But before you do, it’s a good idea to find out what’s going on
under the hood. This guide assists you in getting your Web site up and running quickly.
Along the way, we also pass on some general hosting information that you can use to
impress your friends.
Your shared hosting account resides on a server along with other accounts. The server’s
resources are shared across these accounts, hence the term shared hosting. This is in
contrast to dedicated hosting, which allows a single account to exclusively use one server.
A major benefit to having a shared hosting account is that we take care of your server
security, backup, and maintenance.
