Apart from having more resources, a good reason why you could get your own web 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 could use programs, that do not require root access and are not installed server-side, so when you need certain software for your sites, you cannot set it up on a shared server. This isn't the case with a hosting server of your own in which you could install whatever you want. The downside is that you may not have much experience and managing your own server is more challenging that managing a shared Internet hosting account in which the service provider manages most things. This is the reason why we offer one more service for our hosting server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you can reap the benefits of it any time you face any difficulties with the administration of your server.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Servers
If you require our upgrade for any reason, you can add it to your dedicated server with several mouse clicks from your billing Control Panel or if you will require some custom work on the hosting server the minute it is put in place, you can get the upgrade during the signup process and inform us exactly what you need to be done, so everything will be ready once your hosting server is operational. Sixty minutes of custom work are added to your account every time you acquire the upgrade, so you can employ this service as frequently as you need. If some task requires less time to be finished, you will not lose the remaining minutes and they'll be available for future tasks. Our upgrade will enable you to focus on developing and promoting your sites without spending time on maintaining the dedicated hosting server or the software installed on it. You may take full advantage of it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 minutes it includes are not enough to complete all tasks which you require.
