Understanding the basics of shared web hosting

Understanding the concept of shared web hosting is simple. Based on the foundation of sharing a single server, you can deploy multiple websites on a shared web host. The concept itself is self-explanatory but most people and businesses find it a bit confusing. Even when I made my first ever website I was not sure about what type of web host should I choose. In a shared host, websites share resources and features altogether. The amount of space, resources and functionalities is defined in your chosen web-hosting plan. Linux shared hosting and shared windows hosting are two of the prevalent shared hosting solutions. Which one do you people prefer the most?
