    Small Windows Virtual Host Shopping Guide

    Virtual hosting — also known as shared hosting — is a web hosting methodology by which a multitude of website domain names can be hosted on the same computer system, whilst at the same time sharing a single IP address. For example, if you possess the domain names of www.website.com and www.internet.com, these domain names can share the system resources of the virtual host in question. Windows based virtual hosting servers are suitable for small to medium website applications — such as an online business in which a shopping cart is included, for example. The disk space included within the virtual hosting package can include as much as 100 GB or as little as 20 GB depending on the type of package that you choose.
