      With shared hosting, you have limited server which is shared with how many websites that you don't know, when there's a load of visitors on your website or someone website who is sharing with your server, your website could be down or load very slow, but with managed WordPress hosting you have an option of scale the server. Also, you have unlimited access to your server with free SSL, load balancing and dedicated server.

            In shared hosting, security is based on databases and, its applications which make them vulnerable for hackers. This is because once one has access to one shared hosting server, it is easier to access the other websites on it. And once a website has been hacked into, most intruders leave a back door to gain entry again later.
            Since the security threats on a shared host are prevalent, most web hosts advise users to keep their computers safe using reliable update antiviruses. They also advise on using strong passwords and keeping your cPanel password away from any files on your account. Also, disable unnecessary options on your PHP settings to enhance security.
            Cloud Hosting: Cloud hosting security management deals with arising issues using security control.
            While cloud hosting services encounter traditional security issues like network eavesdropping, illegal intrusion, and cloud-specific ones like misuse of cloud services and side-channel attacks, the service has clamped down on data confidentiality, data access control, and data integrity. On top of that, the hosting service has also incorporated encrypted algorithms to further protect privacy and data.
