MailSafi Glossary of Terms
Shared hosting means that multiple businesses host their business assets - websites and emails, games, etc., - on the same server as other individuals or organizations. Each party is given a limited amount of disk space and bandwidth.
Shared hosting is typically used by smaller organizations or startups that may not require extensive scalability or large amounts of disk space. However, with time, as the business grows, especially where business email is critical, most businesses soon discover the challenges of shared hosting.
