Other than having more resources, a very good reason why you can get your own hosting server and use it instead of a shared Internet hosting plan is the fact that you can install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you could use programs, that don't require root access and are not set up server-side, so when you require specific software for your Internet sites, you can't install it on a shared server. This is not the case with a server of your own in which you'll be able to install whatever you would like. The downside is that you may not have much experience and dealing with your own machine is more challenging that managing a shared Internet hosting account where the company takes care of the majority of things. This is why we offer an additional service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you can make use of it any time you experience any problems with the management of your machine.
Installation and Troubleshooting in VPS Servers
The upgrade can be acquired for any of the VPS server packages irrespective of the OS and CP that you have chosen or the task that you need to be executed as our administrators will assist you with everything associated with the software on the server. This includes, but isn't limited to, installing third-party applications, setting up server options, troubleshooting scripts in case they don't function properly, etc. The upgrade features 1 hour of work and if a particular task requires less time, the remaining minutes shall be available for the future and will be listed within the virtual private server billing CP. You may use the Installation & Troubleshooting service either as an independent upgrade or as an addition to the Managed Services upgrade, which supplies thirty minutes of custom work on your machine. That way, you can work on your Internet sites without needing to worry that you will not be able to use some program or losing time on technological matters.
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 case you need any custom work from our administrators right after your hosting server is set up, you may order the upgrade during the server signup process, or when you need something to be executed afterwards, you'll be able to add the upgrade from your billing CP. The Installation & Troubleshooting service includes one hour of work from our admins on your server, so in case you encounter any issues to install a third-party software or some program gives errors and doesn't work the way it should, our experts will be able to help you in a very timely manner. If a task takes less than an hour, the remaining time will be available for future tasks and you'll be able to see it inside the billing area. This upgrade is ideal in the event that you do not have much experience with managing a server or if you use our Managed Services upgrade, but you deplete the half an hour custom work it includes.
