Though managing a standalone web server isn't extremely difficult, it involves more management tasks when compared to a shared hosting account, because the server in which the latter is created is always managed by the hosting provider. Things such as updating the software and checking the hosting server to make certain that it is working are a small part of these tasks. In this light, you'll have to spend more time dealing with the server, so if you have not had a server before and you are not really sure what you have to do and how to do it, you can benefit from a wide range of optional administration services. Thus, you may focus on the content of your websites and on your marketing strategies as opposed to spending hours on boring tasks.
