Other than having more resources, a very good reason why you can get your own server and use it instead of a shared Internet hosting plan is the fact you could install and run a wide selection of software. With a shared account, you can use programs, which don't need root access and aren't set up server-side, so in case you need specific software for your web sites, you can't do the installation on a shared hosting server. This isn't so with a hosting server of your own in which you could install anything you want. The downside is that you may not have much experience and taking care of your own server is more complicated that managing a shared web hosting account where the company takes care of most things. This is why we offer an additional service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you could make use of it any time you face any issues with the administration of your server.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Servers
The upgrade features 1 hour of custom work on your web server, so in case you get any one of our VPS servers plans, you'll be able to take full advantage of this service and have our administrators carry out different tasks that you are unable to do yourself or you just have no time. They are able to install and set up any piece of third-party software for you in case the installation is challenging or they can troubleshoot any app that doesn't function adequately for some reason. You can add the upgrade to your package as frequently as you would like depending on the time needed for a specific task and its complexity. Any remaining time shall remain available in your account for the future and you can see how many minutes are left in your billing CP. Our Managed Services upgrade comes with thirty minutes of custom work on your machine as well, but if you require more than that, you can always add the Installation & Troubleshooting upgrade with a few clicks through the billing area.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Servers
In case you need our upgrade for any reason, you'll be able to add it to your dedicated server with several mouse clicks from your billing CP or if you will require some custom work on the hosting server as soon as it's set up, you can get the upgrade during the signup procedure and tell us what do you require to be done, so everything shall be ready once your machine is operational. 60 minutes of custom work are added to your account each time you obtain the upgrade, so you can take advantage of this service as frequently as you require. If some task requires less time to be performed, you will not lose the remaining minutes and they will 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 server or the software installed on it. You can employ it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 minutes it comes with are not enough to execute all of tasks that you need.
