Managing your own server may not be very simple and in some cases it might be incredibly frustrating, specially if you do not have lots of experience and you aren't absolutely sure how to proceed in specific cases. The hosting machine has its own Operating System and processes running on it, therefore you may need to handle challenges which you have not come across with a standard shared hosting package where the company addresses the server maintenance while you deal with just your web content through a website hosting Control Panel. If some service stops responding, for example, or some process start overloading the machine, you'll have to take measures to restore the proper operation of the hosting server. If you haven't dealt with this kind of situations in the past, you'll be able to use the Monitoring & Rebooting feature, that is an element of our optional Managed Services upgrade pack.
Monitoring and Rebooting in Dedicated Servers
It shall take you a couple of clicks to add the Managed Services bundle to the dedicated server plan that you have picked and our knowledgeable group of administrators will begin monitoring the server closely to ensure that it is up and running properly at all times. A number of automated checks shall also be added, so they shall be aware of any problem the moment it appears. High CPU load, an application using a lot of memory or a system process which has stopped responding are only a few illustrations of the issues which we can keep an eye for and resolve once the reason for their appearance is determined. If necessary, the dedicated hosting server will also be restarted, so you will not have to do anything on your end. With this service you won't have to pay to third-party monitoring organizations which can only notify you if anything goes wrong but don't have the access to fix a problem.
