Other than having more resources, a very good reason why you could get your own server and use it instead of a shared Internet hosting plan is the fact that you'll be able to install and run a large selection of software. With a shared account, you'll be able to use applications, which do not need root access and are not set up server-side, so when you need specific software for your websites, you can't install it on a shared web server. This is not so with a hosting server of your own in which you are able to install whatever you want. The downside is that you may not have much experience and handling your own hosting server is more difficult that managing a shared web hosting account in which the provider manages most things. That's why we offer one more service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may take full advantage of it any time you come across any problems with the supervision of your machine.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS
The upgrade could be ordered for any one of the virtual private server plans irrespective of the Operating System and CP that you've chosen or the task that you need to be executed as our admins will aid you with everything related to the software on the server. This includes, but isn't limited to, setting up third-party applications, setting up server options, troubleshooting scripts when they do not perform adequately, and so forth. The upgrade includes 1 hour of work and if a specific task requires less time, the remaining minutes will be available for the future and will be listed within the virtual private server billing CP. You may use the Installation & Troubleshooting service either as an independent upgrade or as an addition to the Managed Services upgrade, which offers half an hour of custom work on your hosting server. That way, you may work on your sites without needing to worry that you'll not be able to use some application or losing time on technical issues.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Hosting
In the event that you require our upgrade for any reason, you could add it to your dedicated server with a couple of mouse clicks from your billing Control Panel or if you need some custom work on the machine the minute it's put in place, you can acquire the upgrade during the signup procedure and inform us exactly what you need to be performed, so everything shall be ready once your machine is functioning. 60 minutes of custom work are added to your account every time you obtain the upgrade, so you can take advantage of this service as frequently as you need. If some task needs less time to be completed, you will not lose the remaining minutes and they shall be available for future tasks. Our upgrade will let you concentrate on developing and promoting your websites without wasting time on maintaining the dedicated web server or the software installed on it. You can take full advantage of it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 minutes it comes with are not enough to carry out all of tasks which you need.
