Whether you have a virtual server or a physical piece of hardware we can provide you with a comprehensive management service to monitor and maintain every aspect of your server and software. With our management services we will draw on almost 30 years of experience to provide industry leading support so that all you need to worry about is your application or website.

If you already have a virtual or dedicated server with us you can confirm the pricing and add server management during the checkout or from the customer portal. If you would like us to manage a server that we don't provide you then give us a call on 03300 882130 and we'll discuss your options.

Server management includes:

  • Operating system installation & configuration
  • Application installation & configuration
  • Bespoke security hardening
  • Hardware firewall (Cloud & dedicated only)
  • Pro-active security updates
  • Routine software updates
  • Automated 24/7/365 availability & performance monitoring
  • Off-site full disk backups
  • 24/7/365 emergency telephone support
  • Control panel licensing (if desired)
  • Custom application and web server configuration
  • Disaster recovery and availability planning
  • Application architecting consultancy (DDoS, CDN, optimisation, etc)
  • General application and server advice and troubleshooting

Server management is often slightly different for different customers, some customers need a lot of management and others less. We'll tailor precisely what we do to meet your needs and those of your application. Along the way we'll be able to advise you on additional services such as hardware firewall, PCI DSS compliance, DDoS mitigation, CDN, and even advise you on best practices to optimise your application itself.


We'll even manage your servers from the forest like actual bonafide server elves.
