Although managing a standalone web server is not extremely hard, it involves more administration tasks in comparison to a shared hosting account, because the web server in which the latter is created is always managed by the provider. Things such as updating the software and monitoring the hosting server to make certain that it is operational are just a small part of these tasks. In this light, you will have to spend more time managing the server, so if you have not had a hosting server before and you are not really sure what you must do and how to do it, you can take advantage of an array of optional administration services. Thus, you could focus on the content of your sites and on your marketing and advertising strategies instead of spending hours on mundane tasks.
