Apart from having more resources, a very good reason why you could get your own web server and use it instead of a shared Internet hosting plan is the fact you can install and run a large selection of software. With a shared account, you can use apps, that don't need root access and aren't installed server-side, so in case you require specific software for your web sites, you can't do the installation on a shared hosting server. This is not the case with a server of your own where you can install everything you need. The downside is that you may not have much experience and handling your own server is more complex that managing a shared Internet hosting account where the company manages the majority of things. This is why we offer an additional service for our hosting server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you could take advantage of it any time you encounter any issues with the supervision of your machine.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Servers
The upgrade is available with all VPS server plans that we offer and you could add it either during the signup or anytime later on using your billing CP. It includes one hour of custom work on your web server, so our administrators can help you with software installation or setup. They'll furthermore troubleshoot any piece of software that you have already installed in case it doesn't work efficiently, so you will not need to waste time to discover what is wrong because they can assist you in a very quick and professional manner. As this is a one-time upgrade, you can get it just when you need it and if a certain task takes less time, the remaining minutes shall be available for the future and shall not be reset in the end of the month. This upgrade is effective in case you can't do something on your own or when you have our Managed Services upgrade, but the thirty minutes of custom work it features are not enough for a particular task.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Servers
If you require our upgrade for any reason, you'll be able to add it to your dedicated server with a couple of clicks through the billing Control Panel or if you need some custom work on the machine immediately after it's set up, you can get the upgrade during the signup process and let us know exactly what you need to be done, so everything shall be ready once your web server is operational. 60 minutes of custom work are included to your account every time you acquire the upgrade, so you can use this service as many times as you require. If some task needs less time to be completed, you won't lose the remaining minutes and they'll be available for future tasks. Our upgrade will let you concentrate on creating and advertising your websites without spending time on maintaining the dedicated hosting server or the software installed on it. You could employ it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 min it includes are not sufficient to complete all tasks which you need.
