Other than having more resources, a very good reason why you may get your own hosting server and use it instead of a shared hosting plan is that you are able to install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you'll be able to use apps, which do not need root access and are not set up server-side, so if you require particular software for your sites, you cannot set it up on a shared server. This isn't the case with a server of your own in which you are able to install whatever you wish. The downside is that you may not have much experience and taking care of your own machine is more complex that managing a shared web hosting account where the provider takes care of most things. This is the reason why we offer another service for our server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you could reap the benefits of it any time you face any difficulties with the supervision of your machine.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Hosting
The upgrade includes 60 minutes of custom work on your web server, so in the event that you get any one of our virtual private servers plans, you'll be able to take advantage of this service and have our administrators perform different tasks that you can not do yourself or you have no time. They can install and set up any piece of third-party software for you in case the installation is complicated or they can troubleshoot any program that does not operate adequately for some reason. You'll be able to add the upgrade to your package as often as you would like 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'll be able to see how many minutes are left inside your billing CP. Our Managed Services upgrade comes with thirty minutes of custom work on your server also, but in case you require more than that, you can always add the Installation & Troubleshooting upgrade with a few mouse clicks from the billing area.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can add the upgrade to any one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which we offer at any time that you need it. In the event that you need some custom work from our administrators just after your hosting server is ready, you could order the upgrade during the hosting server signup procedure, or when you need something to be performed later, you'll be able to add the upgrade from your billing CP. The Installation & Troubleshooting service offers one hour of work from our admins on your hosting server, so in case you face any difficulties to install a third-party piece of software or some program gives errors and does not work the way it is supposed to, our experts will be able to help you in a very timely manner. If a task takes less than one hour, the remaining time will be available for future tasks and you shall be able to see it within the billing area. This upgrade is suitable in the event that you do not have a lot of experience with managing a server or if you use our Managed Services upgrade, but you run out of the half an hour custom work it includes.
