Aside from having more resources, a reason why you could get your own web server and use it instead of a shared web hosting plan is the fact that you'll be able to install and run a large selection of software. With a shared account, you can use apps, which do not need root access and aren't set up server-side, so in case you require certain software for your websites, you cannot do the installation on a shared hosting server. This isn't the case with a server of your own in which you could install everything you would like. The downside is that you may not have much experience and dealing with your own hosting server is more challenging that managing a shared Internet hosting account where the service provider manages most things. This is the reason why we offer an additional service for our server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you could take advantage of it any time that you experience any problems with the management of your machine.

Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS

The upgrade is obtainable with all virtual private server plans which we offer and you'll be able to add it either during the signup or anytime later on through your billing Control Panel. It comes with one hour of custom work on your web server, so our administrators can easily assist you with software installation or setup. They can furthermore troubleshoot any piece of software you have already installed if it does not work efficiently, so you'll not need to waste time to find out what is wrong as they can assist you in a very quick and professional way. As this is a one-time upgrade, you can get it only when you need it and if a given task takes a shorter period, the rest of the minutes shall be available for the future and shall not be reset in the end of the month. This upgrade is useful if you can't do something on your own or in case you have our Managed Services upgrade, but the half an hour of custom work it includes are not enough for a specific task.

Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Hosting

When you require our upgrade for any reason, you can add it to your dedicated server with a few clicks through the billing CP or if you need some custom work on the hosting server immediately after it is put in place, you can get the upgrade during the signup process and inform us what exactly you need to be done, so everything shall be ready once your machine is working. Sixty minutes of custom work are added to your account each time you acquire the upgrade, so you can use this service as often as you require. If some task requires less time to be completed, you'll 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 websites without wasting time on maintaining the dedicated server or the software installed on it. You'll be able to take advantage of it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 min it comes with aren't sufficient to carry out all of tasks which you require.
