Apart from having more system resources, a good reason why you could get your own server and use it instead of a shared hosting plan is the fact that you'll be able to install and run a wide variety of software. With a shared account, you'll be able to use applications, which don't need root access and aren't set up server-side, so if you require specific software for your web sites, you can't install it on a shared web server. This is not the case with a server of your own in which you are able to install everything you wish. The downside is that you may not have much experience and handling your own hosting server is more complicated that managing a shared hosting account in which the company takes care of most things. This is the reason why we offer one more service for our server packages called Installation & Troubleshooting and you can make use of it any time you come across any difficulties with the supervision of your server.
