Other than having more system resources, a reason why you can get your own web server and use it instead of a shared Internet hosting plan is the fact you are able to install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you could use applications, that do not need root access and aren't set up server-side, so in the event that you require particular software for your Internet sites, you can't set it up on a shared web server. This is not the case with a hosting server of your own in which you are able to install everything you want. The downside is that you may not have much experience and managing your own hosting server is more challenging that managing a shared Internet hosting account where the company manages most things. That's why we offer another service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may make use of it any time you face any issues with the management of your hosting server.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Servers
The upgrade is available with all VPS server plans we offer and you can add it either during the signup or anytime later on using your billing CP. It comes with sixty minutes of custom work on your server, so our administrators can help you with software installation or setup. They can furthermore troubleshoot any piece of software that you have already installed if it doesn't work correctly, so you will not have to waste time to figure out what's wrong since they can assist you in a very quick and expert way. Because this is a one-time upgrade, you'll be able to get it only if you need it and if a particular task takes a shorter period, the rest of the minutes will be available for the future and shall not be reset in the end of the month. This upgrade is effective in case you can't do something by yourself or when you have our Managed Services upgrade, but the half an hour of custom work it includes aren't enough for a certain task.
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 clicks from your billing Control Panel or if you will need some custom work on the hosting server as soon as it's put in place, you can get the upgrade during the signup process and tell us exactly what you need to be carried out, so everything will be ready once your hosting server is working. Sixty minutes of custom work are added to your account every time you obtain the upgrade, so you can take full advantage of this service as frequently as you need. If some task needs less time to be completed, you'll not lose the remaining minutes and they shall be available for future tasks. Our upgrade will let you concentrate on building and promoting your Internet sites without wasting time on maintaining the dedicated web server or the software set up on it. You can take full advantage of it if you also use our Managed Services upgrade, but the 30 min it comes with aren't enough to complete all tasks that you require.
