Other than having more resources, a good reason why you could get your own server and use it instead of a shared hosting plan is the fact that you can install and run a large selection of software. With a shared account, you'll be able to use apps, which don't require root access and are not set up server-side, so when you require particular software for your sites, you can't do the installation on a shared server. This is not the case with a server of your own where you could install everything you need. The downside is that you may not have much experience and dealing with your own hosting server is more challenging that managing a shared hosting account where the service provider handles the majority of things. This is why we offer another service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may make use of it any time you experience any difficulties with the administration of your machine.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Web Hosting
The upgrade is available with all virtual private server packages that we offer and you'll be able to add it either during the signup or at any time after via your billing CP. It comes with an hour of custom work on your hosting server, so our administrators can help you with software installation or setup. They can furthermore troubleshoot any piece of software which you have already installed in case it doesn't work properly, so you won't need to waste time to find out what's wrong because they can assist you in a very quick and professional way. Since this is a one-time upgrade, you'll be able to get it just when you need it and if a certain task takes less time, the remaining minutes will be available for the future and shall not be reset in the end of the month. This upgrade is helpful when you cannot do something on your own or when you have our Managed Services upgrade, but the thirty minutes of custom work it features aren't enough for a specific task.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you require our upgrade for any reason, you could add it to your dedicated server with a couple of clicks through your billing Control Panel or if you need some custom work on the machine the moment it's put in place, you can obtain the upgrade during the signup procedure and tell us what do you require to be carried out, so everything shall be ready once your web server is up and running. 60 minutes of custom work are added to your account each and every time you acquire the upgrade, so you can employ this service as often as you require. If some task requires less time to be carried out, you won't lose the remaining minutes and they will be available for future tasks. Our upgrade will enable you to focus on creating and advertising your websites without wasting time on maintaining the dedicated hosting server or the software set up on it. You can employ it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 min it comes with aren't enough to perform all tasks that you need.
