If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have to do more things to keep it in shape compared to a shared web hosting account. This is because the shared web servers are maintained by the hosting provider, while with a standalone server you shall be the only one in control. A few examples of the tasks you'll have to do are installing server-side programs and keeping them up-to-date, keeping track of the hosting server and rebooting it if needed, etc. If you don't have free time for this type of tasks, though, or in case you have not had a server of your own and you feel unsure of what exactly you must do, you may use our optional management services. When you do this, our system admins will take care of all of these additional tasks for you, so you will be able to concentrate on your web sites and to advertise them, as a way to get more visitors and potential clients without needing to spend time and efforts on particulars.
Administration Services in VPS
The administration services may be added to all of our Linux VPS packages either during the signup procedure or afterwards from the billing Control Panel. Our system administrators will help you with many tasks - they can do regular backups on a separate server so that you shall have a copy of your content if anything breaks down; they can update the Operating System running on the hosting server to keep it secure and stable; they can keep an eye on the processes on the machine and restart the latter if needed; they are able to install and troubleshoot third-party software if you aren't able to do this yourself. Depending on the tasks which you prefer to carry out yourself and on the tasks that you wish to leave to our admins, you could either get all these things all at once as part of one package, or you could get them 1 by 1 as separate services.
Administration Services in Dedicated Hosting
The additional services are available to all our customers at any moment, irrespective of the particular dedicated hosting package, so when you get a machine from our company, our system administrators will help you with a wide range of things. For a start, they will make perfectly sure that the software environment on the server is always safe, because they will update the Operating System weekly. They shall also take care of your content and will create a backup on another machine and if anything goes wrong, your files and databases shall be restored easily. With the monitoring and rebooting service, our administrator staff will keep an eye on the machine constantly and will react quickly if any problem occurs. Moreover, they are able to also perform any custom tasks on the hosting server that you might need, for as long as you might need them. Depending on the time you could spend on the dedicated server and on your experience, you can get each one of these services one by one, or you can get them all at once as part of one single plan.
