Aside from having more resources, a reason why you may get your own hosting server and use it instead of a shared website hosting plan is the fact you'll be able to install and run a wide selection of software. With a shared account, you can use apps, that do not need root access and aren't installed server-side, so if you require certain software for your web sites, you cannot set it up on a shared server. This isn't the case with a hosting server of your own where you can install whatever you need. The downside is that you may not have much experience and managing your own server is more complicated that managing a shared web hosting account in which the provider takes care of most things. This is why we offer another service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you can reap the benefits of it any time that you experience any problems with the administration of your hosting server.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Hosting
The upgrade comes with sixty minutes of custom work on your hosting server, so in case you get any one of our virtual private servers plans, you could benefit from this service and have our administrators carry out different tasks which you can not do yourself or you just have no time. They are able to install and set up any piece of third-party software for you if the installation is complicated or they can troubleshoot any program that doesn't operate properly for some reason. You may add the upgrade to your package as many times as you wish depending on the time needed for a certain task and its complexity. Any remaining time will remain available in your account for the future and you can see how many minutes are left inside your billing CP. Our Managed Services upgrade features thirty minutes of custom work on your machine also, but just in case you require more than that, you could always add the Installation & Troubleshooting upgrade with a couple of clicks from the billing area.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you require our upgrade for any reason, you could add it to your dedicated server with a few mouse clicks from your billing Control Panel or if you will require some custom work on the machine the moment it's put in place, you can obtain the upgrade during the signup process and tell us exactly what you need to be carried out, so everything will be ready once your machine is operational. 60 minutes of custom work are included to your account every time you obtain the upgrade, so you can use this service as frequently as you need. If some task needs less time to be completed, you will not lose the remaining minutes and they shall be available for future tasks. Our upgrade will permit you to focus on creating and advertising your sites without wasting time on maintaining the dedicated server or the software set up on it. You could take advantage of it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 minutes it comes with are not enough to complete all of tasks that you require.
