Slashdot effect on a website located on commercial hosting
 
Hello people.

A question about Slashdot effect: how can one website go down because of it on a regular web hosting (not VPS)? Don't they share common server resources for all websites equally? I know VPS has separation due to its nature. But what about old-style web hosting?

well all websites on a single server will often go down, but it ultimately depends what the bottle neck is in the system that's overloaded. Too many file hanedles open, lack of disk space, database overload. there are SO many ways a site can go down.
