Other than having more system resources, a very good reason why you may get your own hosting server and use it instead of a shared website hosting plan is the fact that you can install and run a large selection of software. With a shared account, you can use applications, which don't need root access and are not set up server-side, so in case you require specific software for your websites, you can't set it up on a shared hosting server. This is not the situation with a hosting server of your own in which you'll be able to install everything you need. The downside is that you may not have much experience and dealing with your own server is more difficult that managing a shared web hosting account in which the service provider manages most things. That's why we offer another service for our hosting server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you can make use of it any time you encounter any problems with the management of your hosting server.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Servers
You can add the upgrade with a couple of clicks whenever you need it and irrespective of the VPS servers plan that you have picked. This can be done either during the order procedure if you think that you will require support from the very beginning or at a later time from the VPS billing CP in case you have problems with any application on the machine. Our qualified admins can install or troubleshoot any app for you in a very timely matter. The Installation & Troubleshooting upgrade offers 60 minutes of custom work and you can use it at any time. The vast majority of tasks take less than that, thus the remaining time shall be available for the future and you will be able to see it in the billing CP at all times. You can use the upgrade as a standalone service or on top of the thirty minutes of custom work which are a part of our Managed Services upgrade.
Installation and Troubleshooting in Dedicated Servers
You may add the upgrade to any of the dedicated servers we offer at any time that you need it. In the event that you need some custom work from our admins just after your hosting server is ready, you can get the upgrade during the server signup procedure, or if you need something to be carried out later on, you can add the upgrade from your billing CP. The Installation & Troubleshooting service features 1 hour of work from our admins on your server, so in the event that you encounter any problems to install a third-party software or some application gives errors and does not work the way it is supposed to, our experts can assist 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 inside the billing area. This upgrade is suitable if you do not have lots of experience with managing a hosting server or if you use our Managed Services upgrade, but you deplete the 30 min custom work it comes with.
