Why two businesses should not share one hosting account
JSWeb partners with Spiral Hosting (https://spiralhosting.com/).
We recommend every company/business has their own hosting plan for website security, data protection and performance/speed reasons.
It can sometimes be tempting to host multiple business' websites on a single hosting plan for convenience/cost reasons, in particular if you are solely responsible for managing those websites. However, multiple businesses sharing a single hosting account is a bad idea, it often causes problems, and we will explain some of the reasons here.
If the website software on one business were to be exploited/compromised, it could cause serious issues for both businesses. As an example, nearly 40% of all websites are now running WordPress software. Our abuse department deal with WordPress exploits/compromises every day of the week. Many of these exploit scripts hide malware files in sub-directories across a hosting account so they can run an exploit weeks/months down the line. Malware/exploits from one website can quickly impact another website on the same hosting plan. We regularly see business websites defaced or involved in spamming/phishing, sometimes causing other providers to blacklist websites and email. Restoring backups and fixing these issues can cause a lot of downtime for any business.
Every hosting account has its own technical resources: CPU processing power, RAM memory, data IO (input/output) and EPs (entry processes). All of their resources have their own limits. If one website starts using more resources because of a surge in traffic or some technical/software fault, other websites on the same hosting plan will be impacted too. Website visitors might see a warning message, slow loading speed because resources are being throttled, or potentially 503/508 "resource usage exceeded" errors that stop the website loading altogether.
