Quality Shared Hosting
There are various kinds of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different websites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your site, you must calculate what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be fulfilled.

The most relevant option for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per person substantially. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one host to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain an account that will provide the resources your online portal really needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not use, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Japan Raidlayer, offer a large selection of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a low-cost account and you need more functionalities, moving to a better plan requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weak Points
A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Some online portals, especially online shops, demand applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand complete root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that require complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in precisely the same way.
VPS Web Servers
Both services commonly include complete server root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages come with diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual hosting server plan contains guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief periods of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to run as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, certain companies offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
