Aside from having more system resources, a reason why you may get your own web server and use it instead of a shared hosting plan is the fact you could install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you'll be able to use applications, which don't need root access and aren't set up server-side, so in case you need certain software for your sites, you can't install it on a shared server. This isn't so with a hosting server of your own in which you are able to install anything you need. The downside is that you may not have much experience and taking care of your own server is more challenging that managing a shared hosting account where the provider manages most things. That's why we offer an additional service for our hosting server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may take full advantage of it any time that you experience any problems with the supervision of your machine.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Hosting
The upgrade can be purchased for any of the virtual private server packages regardless of the Operating System and CP you have chosen or the task that you need to be done as our administrators will help you with anything relevant to the software on the server.

You could use the Installation & Troubleshooting service either as an individual upgrade or as an addition to the Managed Services upgrade, which offers thirty minutes of custom work on your server. This way, you can work on your sites without worrying that you won't be able to use some program or losing time on complex issues.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Web Hosting
You may add the upgrade to any of the dedicated servers hosting packages which we offer at any time that you need it. In case you need some custom work from our administrators just after your web server is set up, you can order the upgrade during the server signup procedure, or when you need something to be executed afterwards, you can add the upgrade from your billing Control Panel. The Installation & Troubleshooting service includes 60 minutes work from our admins on your hosting server, so in case you encounter any problems to install a third-party software or some app gives errors and doesn't work the way it should, our experts can help you in a very timely manner. If a task takes less than sixty minutes, the remaining time shall be available for future tasks and you'll be able to see it inside the billing area. This upgrade is suitable in the event that you do not have a lot of experience with managing a hosting server or if you use our Managed Services upgrade, but you deplete the thirty minutes custom work it includes.
