So should you use shared hosting for WordPress site? Well, if you want to start a new WordPress blog then you can go through shared hosting as it will save your money. All the starter site with a less than medium amount of traffic can run on shared hosting. I recommend you that if the unique visitors of your site per month is around 15000, you can continue using shared hosting. When your blog cross the limit then you can look to those other than shared hosting.
For that low amount of traffic why will you go through dedicated or VPS hosting? These traffic can easily handle by shared hosting. So it is better to use shared hosting if your site has low amount of traffic. And I mostly recommend you one of the shared hosting that is provided by SiteGround, DreamHost, InmotionHosting, Bluehost. And I strongly recommend you not to use GoDaddy shared hosting for WordPress anymore. I already felt very bad experience with Godaddy managed WordPress hosting.
