Let me guess. When choosing a shared hosting you want more CPU and RAM for your account for less money. But some shared hosts do not even display this information. So embarrassing! “What’s wrong with them?!” – you may say. And your second though is “Perhaps CPU and RAM is not what guarantees a shared host to be powerful and fast?”

In this article:

  1. You will understand the shared hosting business model in general. And this will help you see why advertised RAM and CPU are mostly about marketing, not about the performance.
  2. On the other hand you will see when RAM and CPU matters for shared hosting.
  3. Also, I will share with you my own experience proved with data. And you will see how different can be the speed of the 15 shared hosts I monitor regardless of RAM.
