Aside from having more system 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 can use applications, which don't require root access and are not installed server-side, so in case you need particular software for your websites, you can't do the installation on a shared hosting server. This isn't the case with a hosting server of your own where you can install whatever you wish. The downside is that you may not have much experience and handling your own server is more complex that managing a shared web hosting account in which the provider manages the majority of things. That's why we offer an extra service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may take advantage of it any time you experience any difficulties with the supervision of your machine.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Servers
The upgrade features one hour of custom work on your web server, so if you get any one of our VPS servers plans, you could take advantage of this service and have our admins do various tasks which you can't perform yourself or you simply have no time. They could install and set up any piece of third-party software for you in case the installation is difficult or they can troubleshoot any app that doesn't function properly for some reason. You can add the upgrade to your package as often as you wish depending on the time needed for a particular task and its complexity. Any remaining time will remain available in your account for the future and you shall be able to see how many minutes are left in your billing Control Panel. Our Managed Services upgrade comes with thirty minutes of custom work on your server also, but just in case you need more than that, you may always add the Installation & Troubleshooting upgrade with a few mouse clicks through the billing area.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Servers
In case you require our upgrade for any reason, you can add it to your dedicated server with a few mouse clicks through the billing CP or if you will require some custom work on the server immediately after it's put in place, you can get the upgrade during the signup process and inform us exactly what you need to be carried out, so everything shall be ready once your hosting server is functioning. 60 minutes of custom work are added to your account each time you get the upgrade, so you can employ this service as frequently as you require. If some task needs less time to be performed, you will not lose the remaining minutes and they will be available for future tasks. Our upgrade will allow you to focus on developing and promoting your websites without spending time on maintaining the dedicated server or the software set up on it. You may employ it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 min it comes with are not sufficient to carry out all of tasks which you need.
