As there are a lot of web hosting companies available on very cheap costs. why would someone want to setup his own server. There come the needs where some of them can be like these
  1. You don’t have full control
  2. You are scared of data share
  3. You can’t execute a simple command like grip
  4. Your usage is lesser than the fee
  5. Your requirements are increased and the you are unable to increase the resources
  6. You have multiple customers and you want to profit in the hosting service
