Other than having more resources, a reason why you may get your own web server and use it instead of a shared hosting plan is the fact you are able to install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you'll be able to use apps, which do not require root access and aren't set up server-side, so in the event that you need particular software for your Internet sites, you cannot install it on a shared server. This isn't the case with a server of your own where you'll be able to install everything you want. The downside is that you may not have much experience and handling your own machine is more difficult that managing a shared web hosting account in which the company manages most things. That's why we offer an extra service for our hosting server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you could make use of it any time you experience any difficulties with the administration of your machine.

The upgrade is obtainable with all virtual private server plans we offer and you could add it either during the signup or anytime later on through your billing Control Panel.

They'll furthermore troubleshoot any piece of software you have already installed in the event that it does not work correctly, so you'll not need to waste time to discover what is wrong because they can help you in a very quick and skilled way. Since this is a one-time upgrade, you could get it only when you need it and if a certain task takes less time, the rest of the minutes shall be available for the future and won't be reset in the end of the month. This upgrade is effective when you can't do something by yourself or if you have our Managed Services upgrade, but the thirty minutes of custom work it features aren't enough for a certain task.
