What is Managed Hosting?

Managed Hosting is a dedicated server that we set up, monitor, maintain, secure and patch for you. We will also install and maintain some Web applications, listed here. We also offer custom support services with Managed Hosting for an hourly rate. Managed Hosting accounts remove your root/system-level access but let you control all other aspects of your server.

Managed Hosting accounts use Parallels Plesk Panel® with one of the following operating systems:

  • Windows — Windows® Server 2003 (Economy plans only) or Windows Server 2008 (all other plans)
  • Linux — CentOS®

What can I install on my Managed Hosting account?

Because you do not have root/system-level access, you cannot install applications requiring that level of access yourself, although we can install them for you for a fee. However, you can install any applications yourself that do not require root/system-level access.

Do you restrict what content I can keep on my server?

As long as the material or content does not violate the regulations listed in the license agreement for your account, you can upload any type of content that you want on your server.

How do I install software on my Windows Managed Server?

If you want to install software on your Windows® Managed Hosting account, you must submit a Trouble Ticket detailing what you would like installed on your hosting account. For more information, see Create a Trouble Ticket for Your Virtual Dedicated/Dedicated Server.

If the technical problem you are experiencing originates within systems or technology under our exclusive management, no charge will apply.

Examples of supported technical problems:

  • Your server becomes unreachable due to a network failure within our facility.
  • Your server becomes unreachable due to a hardware failure within our facility.
  • The hosting service setup process failed to complete successfully.
  • A root user password change request failed to resolve successfully.
