Aside from having more resources, a reason why you could get your own server and use it instead of a shared Internet hosting plan is the fact that you can install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you could use programs, that don't require root access and aren't set up server-side, so if you need specific software for your Internet sites, you cannot do the installation on a shared web server. This isn't the case with a server of your own in which you could install whatever you want. The downside is that you may not have much experience and handling your own server is more challenging that managing a shared hosting account where the service provider takes care of most things. That's why we offer an extra service for our server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may reap the benefits of it any time you face any issues with the management of your server.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS
The upgrade can be acquired with all virtual private server plans that we offer and you can add it either during the signup or at any time later using your billing CP. It comes with an hour of custom work on your hosting server, so our admins can assist you with software installation or setup. They could also troubleshoot any piece of software that you have already installed if it doesn't work correctly, so you'll not have to waste time to find out what is wrong because they can assist you in a very quick and qualified manner. As this is a one-time upgrade, you'll be able to get it only if you need it and if a certain task takes shorter time, 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 beneficial when you can't do something on your own or when 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
In case you require our upgrade for any reason, you could add it to your dedicated server with a couple of mouse clicks from your billing CP or if you will need some custom work on the hosting server the moment it is put in place, you can get 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 operational. 60 minutes of custom work are included to your account each time you get the upgrade, so you can take advantage of this service as many times as you require. If some task requires less time to be finished, you will not lose the remaining minutes and they will be available for future tasks. Our upgrade will enable you to concentrate on developing and advertising your Internet sites without spending time on maintaining the dedicated server or the software installed on it. You could take full advantage of it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 minutes it includes aren't sufficient to perform all of tasks that you need.
