Quality Website Hosting
There are various kinds of website hosting packages suitable for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the website hosting platform they need. To select the best website hosting service for your web page, you have to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

The most relevant option for small web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per client markedly. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one hosting corporation to another, providing different amounts of storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a plan that will include the specifications your web portal really demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at France Raidlayer, offer a huge selection of website hosting plans appropriate for private or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low priced plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced account requires only a click.
Shared website hosting - Weaknesses
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Some websites, especially web stores, need applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software that does not need full root-level access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that need root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in strictly the same way.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally give full root privileges and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting server accounts contain different characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A private virtual server web hosting account has guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short spans of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to handle as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by proficient users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, some web hosting firms provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute web server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
