Aside from having more resources, a reason why you could get your own web server and use it instead of a shared web hosting plan is the fact that you are able to install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you can use applications, which do not need root access and are not installed server-side, so in the event that you need particular software for your Internet sites, you can't install it on a shared web server. This is not the case with a server of your own where you are able to install whatever you need. The downside is that you may not have much experience and managing your own server is more complicated that managing a shared hosting account in which the company manages the majority of things. This is the reason why we offer an additional service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may take advantage of it any time that you experience any problems with the supervision of your server.
