If you obtain your own hosting server, you will have more independence as to what you'll be able to install and run when compared with a shared web hosting account. With a shared service, you have access simply to your own account, hence you aren't able to install server-side software. While this is not a problem for most script-driven applications, there are several that have certain requirements and need certain software to be present on the hosting server either for some additional features or for them to work at all. In case you have practical knowledge, you will not have any difficulties to run the machine, but if you do not, you may simply not have the knowledge to deal with everything and use the script apps you want. If that's the case, you could use our Installation & Troubleshooting upgrade, which means that our system admins can set up everything for you and help you with any problems that you could come across.
