Aside from having more resources, a good reason why you can get your own web server and use it instead of a shared hosting plan is the fact that you can install and run a large selection of software. With a shared account, you could use apps, which do not require root access and aren't installed server-side, so when you require particular software for your web sites, you cannot do the installation on a shared web server. This isn't the situation with a hosting server of your own in which you'll be able to install everything you want. The downside is that you may not have much experience and handling your own hosting server is more difficult that managing a shared web hosting account in which the provider manages most things. This is the reason why we offer an extra service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may take full advantage of it any time that you come across any problems with the supervision of your server.

Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Hosting

The upgrade features one hour of custom work on your web server, so in case you get any one of our virtual private servers packages, you could take full advantage of this service and have our administrators do various tasks which you can't carry out yourself or you simply have no time. They could install and set up any piece of third-party software for you if the installation is complicated or they can troubleshoot any application that does not function adequately for some reason. You'll be able to add the upgrade to your package as often as you desire depending on the time needed for a given task and its complexity. Any remaining time will remain available in your account for the future and you shall be able to see how many minutes are left within your billing CP. Our Managed Services upgrade provides half an hour of custom work on your machine too, but if you require more than that, you could always add the Installation & Troubleshooting upgrade with several clicks from the billing area.

Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Web Hosting

You may add the upgrade to any of the Linux dedicated web hosting we offer at any time that you need it. In case you need some custom work from our admins right after your web server is prepared, you'll be able to get the upgrade during the server signup process, or when you need something to be executed later, you could add the upgrade from your billing CP. The Installation & Troubleshooting service comes with sixty minutes of work from our admins on your machine, so in case you face any difficulties to install a third-party software or some program gives errors and doesn't work the way it ought to, our experts shall aid you in a very timely manner. If a task takes less than 60 minutes, the rest of the time will be available for future tasks and you will be able to see it within the billing area. This upgrade is suitable in case you don't have much experience with managing a hosting server or if you use our Managed Services upgrade, but you deplete the thirty minutes custom work it provides.
