Apart from having more system resources, a good reason why you may get your own server and use it instead of a shared Internet hosting plan is that you could install and run a large selection of software. With a shared account, you can use apps, which don't need root access and are not installed server-side, so when you need specific software for your Internet sites, you cannot do the installation on a shared web server. This isn't so with a hosting server of your own where you are able to install whatever you need. The downside is that you may not have much experience and taking care of your own server is more challenging that managing a shared hosting account in which the service provider takes care of the majority of things. This is why we offer an extra service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you could take advantage of it any time that you face any problems with the management of your server.
