Besides having more system resources, a reason why you could get your own server and use it instead of a shared hosting plan is the fact that you'll be able to install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you'll be able to use apps, which don't require root access and aren't installed server-side, so in the event that you need particular software for your Internet sites, you can't install it on a shared web server. This isn't the case with a hosting server of your own where you are able to install everything you want. The downside is that you may not have much experience and dealing with your own hosting server is more difficult that managing a shared web hosting account where the company handles most things. This is the reason why we offer another service for our hosting server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you can reap the benefits of it any time you encounter any issues with the management of your server.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Servers
The upgrade is obtainable with all VPS server plans which we offer and you could add it either during the signup or anytime later on through your billing Control Panel. It features an hour of custom work on your web server, so our administrators can help you with software installation or setup. They'll also troubleshoot any piece of software which you have already installed in the event that it doesn't work efficiently, so you will not have to waste time to discover what's wrong because they can help you in a very quick and qualified way. Since this is a one-time upgrade, you could get it only if you need it and if a given task takes a shorter period, the remaining minutes will be available for the future and won't be reset in the end of the month. This upgrade is beneficial when you can't do something yourself or if you have our Managed Services upgrade, but the half an hour of custom work it provides aren't enough for a certain task.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you require our upgrade for any reason, you could add it to your dedicated server with a couple of clicks from your billing CP or if you will need some custom work on the hosting server as soon as it is put in place, you can obtain the upgrade during the signup procedure and inform us exactly what you need to be performed, so everything will be ready once your hosting server is working. 60 minutes of custom work are added to your account each time you get the upgrade, so you can employ this service as many times as you need. If some task requires less time to be performed, you'll not lose the remaining minutes and they shall be available for future tasks. Our upgrade will enable you to focus on developing and advertising your sites without spending time on maintaining the dedicated server or the software set up on it. You'll be able to take advantage of it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 min it provides aren't enough to perform all of tasks which you need.
