Besides having more system resources, a reason why you can get your own hosting server and use it instead of a shared Internet hosting plan is that you can install and run a large selection of software. With a shared account, you'll be able to use apps, which don't require root access and are not installed server-side, so if you require specific software for your web sites, you can't do the installation on a shared hosting server. This is not the case with a server of your own where you are able to install everything you wish. The downside is that you may not have much experience and dealing with your own hosting server is more difficult that managing a shared hosting account where the service provider handles the majority of things. That's why we offer one more service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you can take advantage of it any time you face any difficulties with the supervision of your server.
