Aside from having more system resources, a good reason why you could get your own web server and use it instead of a shared web hosting plan is the fact you could 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 the event that you need particular software for your sites, you can't set it up on a shared server. This isn't the situation with a hosting server of your own where you'll be able to install anything you need. The downside is that you may not have much experience and taking care of your own machine is more complicated that managing a shared web hosting account in which the service provider takes care of most things. That's why we offer one more service for our hosting server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may make use of it any time that you face any problems with the administration of your server.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Hosting
In case you require our upgrade for any reason, you could add it to your dedicated server with a couple of clicks through the billing CP or if you will need some custom work on the machine the minute it's set up, you can obtain the upgrade during the signup process and inform us exactly what you need to be carried out, so everything shall be ready once your machine is up and running. 60 minutes of custom work are added to your account every time you get the upgrade, so you can employ this service as often as you need. If some task needs 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 concentrate on creating and promoting your websites without spending time on maintaining the dedicated web server or the software installed on it. You could take advantage of it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 min it includes are not sufficient to execute all tasks which you need.
