Other than having more resources, a reason why you can get your own hosting server and use it instead of a shared web hosting plan is the fact you'll be able to install and run a large selection of software. With a shared account, you can use applications, that don't require root access and are not installed server-side, so in the event that you need specific software for your websites, you can't do the installation on a shared server. This isn't the situation with a hosting server of your own where you could install anything you would like. The downside is that you may not have much experience and managing your own server is more complex that managing a shared hosting account in which the company manages most things. That's why we offer an additional service for our server plans called Installation & Troubleshooting and you may reap the benefits of it any time that you come across any difficulties with the management of your machine.
