Other than having more resources, a good reason why you may get your own hosting server and use it instead of a shared web hosting plan is the fact you are able to install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you can use applications, that don't require root access and are not set up server-side, so if you require certain software for your websites, you cannot set it up on a shared server. This isn't the case with a server of your own in which you could install whatever you wish. The downside is that you may not have much experience and handling your own hosting server is more challenging that managing a shared hosting account where the company handles most things. This is the reason why we offer an additional service for our server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may take advantage of it any time that you experience any difficulties with the administration of your machine.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS
The upgrade is available with all virtual private server plans which we offer and you'll be able to add it either during the signup or at any time later via your billing Control Panel. It features one hour of custom work on your web server, so our admins can aid you with software installation or setup. They can also troubleshoot any piece of software you have already installed if it doesn't work, so you will not have to waste time to figure out what is wrong as they can help you in a very quick and expert way. As this is a one-time upgrade, you could get it only if you need it and if a particular task takes a shorter period, the rest of the minutes will be available for the future and shall not be reset in the end of the month. This upgrade is useful when you can't do something by yourself or if you have our Managed Services upgrade, but the half an hour of custom work it features aren't enough for a certain task.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to take full advantage of our service at any moment in the event that you have a dedicated server from us and you could include it in your plan with just a couple of mouse clicks. If you require some custom work on the website hosting server immediately, for instance, you can get the upgrade alongside the plan during the signup process, or you'll be able to get it through your billing area if you need support at some point later. The Installation & You with any task that you can't carry out on your own for one reason or another - install a script, set it up or troubleshoot it. That way, you are able to focus on building your Internet sites without wasting time on web server maintenance or software problems as our skilled staff shall handle these things for you. You'll be able to add the upgrade as many times as you require it and if some time remains, it shall be listed inside your billing CP, so you may use it whenever you need it again.
