What does "shared" hosting mean?


I was looking @ hostgator and they say it is shared hosting....

I am a former FP customer and looking for a new host.

Shared hosting = multiple users on one system.

Dedicated hosting = You are the sole user on the system.

shared hosting means you are on the same server as other customers (usually about 100 others)

Where did you come up with that figure?

*lol*

Well agreed blue. The amount of accounts on a server has much more to do with the load they place on it than the number itself.

Here is a basic analogy:
Shared hosting is like living in an apartment.
VPS is like living in a fourplex.
Dedicated hosting , you own the house.

Very basic but gets the point across to most non-tech people.
