- honest service
- decent pricing
- a fair amount of resources
- less tenants
Reliable web hosting. Simple, honest pricing.

Shared Web Hosting Guide
Web hosting is a service that helps you to have a publicly accessible website on the Internet.
A subscription to a web hosting plan is a rent you pay to have a specialised company manage the services needed to keep your website up and running.
Web hosting is not just the simple renting of space on a server, on that server there are software services that make possible the processing of PHP code, database queries, email sending and receiving, etc.
These services require setup, maintenance and updating, which is the responsibility of the web hosting provider.
By paying for web hosting, you are paying for access to resources, both hardware and software, as well as human resources. Not as in HR, but in terms of care and support.
So it’s not just a simple rent of space, but a wider set of IT services provided by professionals, and specialists in this field:
- hosting DNS zones
- file hosting
- database hosting
- hosting email addresses
- anti-malware protection
- malicious attacks protection (DDOS)
- anti-spam and anti-virus filtering for email
- server administration, maintenance and optimisation
- technical support provided to customers
Due to the massive popularity of shared hosting, most people think of web hosting as a single service, but in fact, there are at least 3 main services:
- DNS hosting
- app hosting
- email hosting
What is DNS hosting?
DNS hosting is the hosting of DNS zones. When you associate a hosting provider’s nameservers with a domain, it means that that provider will host the DNS zones for your domain.
The most common DNS zones are:
- A – The record that contains the IP address of a domain.
- CNAME – Redirects a domain or subdomain to another domain, not to an IP address.
- MX – Directs mail to a mail server.
- TXT – Allows an administrator to store text notes in the record. These records are often used for email security.
What is app hosting?
App hosting is the hosting of your web application, or website (WordPress, another application or even a simple HTML file).
App hosting is controlled by the DNS type A entry, the record that contains the IP address where a domain is pointed. The Domain Name System (DNS) translates the A record and instead of people having to remember an IP address to type in their browser to access google.com, they will type google.com directly.
What is email hosting?
Email hosting is controlled by MX DNS entries, which direct mail to an email server.
The most common case is that of shared hosting, where all 3 services (DNS, app, mail) are with the same provider, on the same server.
But all these 3 hosting services can also be separate, you can have:
- DNS hosting from Cloudflare,
- app hosting from Simplenet,
- mail hosting from Google Workspace.
What’s the best – all together or separated?
For most sites, the default situation where all hosting components are provided as a single service is sufficient and no separation is needed.
In this case, our shared hosting plans presented above include everything needed.
However, there are also cases where some sites have special needs.
1 – a small brochure-style website of a company can use an affordable shared solution for the app hosting because it won’t have high traffic.
But for that company, the email is “business critical” and the limitations of a shared hosting solution are not satisfactory.
Thus, they can separate app hosting from email hosting. Keep the website on shared hosting, but for email opt for a professional email hosting solution, such as Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, Tutanota, Fastmail, ProtonMail, etc.
2 – a high-traffic blog or news site needs website hosting focused on performance and scalability but doesn’t have much need for email.
Thus, email can be hosted on a shared solution, while the website can be hosted on a managed WordPress hosting solution, with a customised setup, specially designed to handle as much traffic as possible.
These would be two example scenarios when separating website hosting from email hosting is needed.
Is shared hosting exclusively for WordPress?
Simplenet’s shared hosting solution is not limited to WordPress, it is 100% compatible with any PHP application.
But if you use WordPress you will have many more advantages than if you use another application because we are WordPress specialists, we have WordPress integrations at the server level, specific optimisations for WordPress performance and we can offer specialised WordPress technical support.
What resources are being shared and how?
Shared hosting works like this:
- cPanel accounts share server resources on a first come, first served basis
- cPanel accounts are isolated one from another and have quotas (each cPanel account has an allocated space and CPU-RAM limits)
- websites inside a cPanel account share the account resources (storage, CPU limits, RAM limits)
- websites inside a cPanel account are not isolated from each other (you can’t set quotas)
