Apart from having more resources, a reason why you could get your own server and use it instead of a shared web hosting plan is the fact that you can install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you can use programs, which don't need root access and are not set up server-side, so if you require particular software for your sites, you can't set it up on a shared server. This is not the case with a server of your own in which you could install everything you wish. The downside is that you may not have much experience and handling your own server is more difficult that managing a shared Internet hosting account in which the service provider manages the majority of things. This is why we offer an additional service for our server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you can make use of it any time you come across any issues with the supervision of your machine.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you require our upgrade for any reason, you'll be able to add it to your dedicated server
with a couple of mouse clicks from your billing CP or if you will need some custom work on the hosting server the minute it is set up, you can get the upgrade during the signup process and tell us what do you require to be carried out, so everything shall be ready once your web server is functioning. Sixty minutes of custom work are included to your account each time you order the upgrade, so you can employ this service as frequently as you need. If some task needs less time to be finished, you won't lose the remaining minutes and they'll be available for future tasks. Our upgrade will let you concentrate on developing and advertising your websites without wasting time on maintaining the dedicated hosting server or the software installed on it. You can employ it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 minutes it includes are not enough to perform all of tasks which you require.
