I just ordered a VPS from and it comes with Full Managed Support.

What does this really mean? Will they install/configures/manage 3rd party softwares such as XCache, LiteSpeed, etc?

Fully Managed Vps

May 31, 2007

i'm beginning my search for a fully managed vps host. I plan on sending an email to each of these hosts and asking questions but i want to inquire here to see if i've missed any prime candidates. I'm choosing VPS mainly because of the security of having your own server + flexibility to do custom stuff down the line if need be. And my site doesn't really need the resources of a dedicated machine.

My current host goes down all the time and has a really long support response. We've also been having lots of connection issues with the clients we have in china. While this may be unavoidable due to the great firewall of china, i think there's got to be a better setup. We'll see.

My website:
This is for a small business (10 or so people) and the website is only used internally for project management, email, and the like. The bandwidth + load are minimal but there is quite a bit of file storage. The main application being used is dot project (mysql + php).

Fully managed:
I just want the OS / basic installed applications (mysql, php, ftp, apache, cpanel, possibly dot project, etc) to be kept up-to-date for security reasons. I don't want to have to monitor each of these to see when a new bugfix comes out. If a service fails (like email) i'd like it to be looked into. I can handle the user management / coding / etc. I don't expect security audits of my website or anything. Yes, i will be asking each host if they will do these items as i understand "fully managed" means a lot of different things to different people.

5+GB space, 5GB Bandwidth (overkill), php, mysql, cpanel would be nice, dot project

hopefully under $60/month

Here's the hosts that i'm going to look into, please let me know if i've left someone out. Yes, i'll be searching the board for reviews of these hosts as well.

FULLY Managed Servers

Sep 26, 2009

I own a pretty high traffic soccer blog. Nothing out of the ordinary!

It generates an average of 8k unique visitors/day - but can reach 30+ unique/day.

According to the guy who is currently hosting it - it does around 30-50gb bandwidth per day.

I'm not sure if I even need a Dedicated server for this. However, the old host said that the HUGE peaks of traffic in the middle of the day are causing him problems.

I'm not very technical - just the writer of the blog - do a couple of other web developments aswell, but I've never really needed a dedicated server before!

Thus, I need this fully managed - and want it to basically work as a reseller hosting account (if thats possible).

I need this quickly as the website is going to be deleted by the end of THIS month! He just told me today . He was taking the revenue from the site in exchange for the hosting. I'd now like to just cough up and pay for it!

If anyone can give me any advise, do I need a dedicated server? Would a VPS do? What prices am I looking at? Are there any companies which suit my needs?

Fully-managed VDS: LiquidWeb Or MyriadNetwork

Aug 16, 2007

Our company may be going the Linux route, so I'm in the market for a Linux VDS that's fully managed. I've never utilized a fully-managed service, so maybe you guys can help me out here.

I used to have a shared account with LiquidWeb (up until a week or two ago actually), and I didn't have any complaints there. However, I've never used their VDS service.

I've had a VDS at MyriadNetwork for almost a year now, and they're one of the best--if not best--providers I've ever done business with; very prompt ticket responses (less than 10 minutes on normal-priority tickets), very friendly and helpful even if it's your responsibility.

I'm aware that LiquidWeb includes full management in their price, whereas MyriadNetwork offers it for an additional $75/mo. A fully-managed comparable plan at LiquidWeb is about 50% cheaper than Myriad's. I know from experience that Myriad's higher prices are justified with the service they provide, but I'd like to know what everyone here thinks.

Should I choose Myriad and hope their full management service is as good as their VDS service, or should I try LiquidWeb out and hope they deliver? Has anyone used either provider's fully-managed services?

Please move this to the Managed forum if it's more appropriate; I picked this one because my situation deals with two very specific VDS providers.

WANSecurity - Fully Managed Hosting - My Experience

Apr 12, 2009

Some of you may remember when I was asking for help on a good dedicated hosting company. I looked around for a month and finally found a great company to host my websites, WANSecurity. I received at least 10 dedicated server offers, but chose to go with WANSecurity because of the server and service they offered me. With so many options out there, I thought it would be helpful for me to share my experience with some of you. I have been on shared hosting for about 10 years and have never messed with dedicated servers. I had no idea there was so much work with dedicated servers until I got my hands on one. I was used to getting everything set up for me at Lunarpages. Although I love Lunarpages, their dedicated servers are nowhere near those offered by WANSecurity. Robert, the WANSecurity founder, has been particularly helpful. I received a recommendation from a WHT forum member telling me to get in direct contact with Robert for the "best managed hosting" offer out there, and guess what... I think I got it. Robert and WANSecurity moved all my files, installed Apache, Red 5, set up my mail servers, configured all of my large databases, and did so much more.

Although I am new to dedicated hosting, their managed plans are world class and their servers are very reliable. No issues in the last 6 weeks for me. If you are new to dedicated hosting and don't feel comfortable running everything on your own, trust these guys. They do a great job and they are flexible. Their managed hosting plans are new but they have been around for 11 years. They know their stuff and most of all, they care about you. That's the great thing when you are a big fish in a small pond. They truly care for you and therefore offer you the best service. If you are experienced with servers, they are still a great choice. They will give you a great deal on a server even if you don't need all the managed hosting services.

Check them out at: [url]

You can also get in touch with their founder if you are interested. PM me for his email. Feel free to ask me any questions. I'm open to give you my personal feedback.

2 Apache Boxes That Back Each Other Up

Feb 28, 2008

I have a managed box with rackspace (green) On this I am running a couple of distance learning sites e.g (moodle on apache) and video streaming (lighttpd). This is all working fine.

I'm now looking at moving our "normal" website (drupal on apache) to a managed server with rackspace. (call this blue)

The 2 different parts will be running on 2 different machines, but I'd like to be able to move sites/applications between them if needs be due to load/work/failure

For example if the normal website server goes down, temporarily move that on to the distance learning/media server or vice versa.
Or if after a while we get more traffic on the distance learning server than the website, move the media server over to the normal website server.

Hope that makes sense - I'm not looking at a proper cluster here, but 2 servers I can juggle things between if needs be.

The way I'm thinking of doing it is having both machines with the same setup (apache port 80 and lighttpd port 81 for streaming)
And use Vhosts on both machines setup for all the sites.
i.e. and each have vhosts setup for, and

This way, whichever server the dns for points to goes there, and the same for other services.

Then do a nightly backup of the mysql databases to the other server and keep files rsynced.

Then if a server goes down or I want to move x from green to blue I just load the backup of green database for the relevant application on the blue server and point the dns entry for the app to blue.

Large Email Boxes + Cpanel

Jan 7, 2007

I ever seen a large mailbox be reliable, but now I have one that's mine and I have 8000 messages and 1.2gb. I can't even log into Horde webmail, if I use NeoMail its very slow, it takes 1 or 2 minutes to delete 100 messages or empty the trash. So I tried to setup the email account in Thunderbird and it times out. When I use POP3 thunderbird says it timed out but on the server I can still see the CPOP process for that user and it says it authenticating, if I try again to access it it says the mailbox lock is on, if I remove the lock same thing, no way to access it.

So any advise on how to access this large mailbox, perhaps there is a way to increase the timeouts?

Also whenever I try to do anything with the mailbox it increases the server load, from .20 or so it goes to 1, 2 even 3+

Is Colocation More Expensive Than Reselling Dedi-boxes?

Feb 18, 2007

I currently run 16 boxes which I rent from various data centers, mark-up and resell. Conventional wisdom says that it's time for me to start colocating my own servers. I've got approval for capital (loan) so it's no problem for me to just buy these boxes and colo them. But... how the hell does anyone afford it?

I mean, I can get a cabinet in H.E. with 10Mbps burst to 100Mbps for $600/mo (through EGI). Which is an insanely good deal until you realize that it only includes 15amps of power. So (I think) that means that I can really only run about 15 or 20 Celerons at the most. So much for filling up the rack.

Optimistically, if I can run 20 Celerons which I've priced at about $700 each including shipping -- plus a switch, KVM, spare parts and bank interest over 24 months -- that's about $800/mo for the servers plus $600 for the cab, plus about $200/mo for remote hands in case I need the DC guys to do something. I'm looking at about $80/mo per server which I have to pay whether it's rented or not.

I can easily find celerons for $80/mo which include some level of support and I can very easily cancel whenever my client does and buy a fresh new one whenever I get a new client.

I was all excited to go colo -- but the numbers don't add up. What am I missing here? What's the big advantage to all the extra hassle of owning your own?

Managed Colocation Vs Managed Server

Jul 16, 2008

When a colo vendor can consider themselves as a managed colocation provider? What make them different than *normal* colo service?

If you need a managed colo, why not go with managed server? With managed server, your vendor will take care about the server health, including software and hardware too

(I am mentioning to fully managed server vendors like Rackspace, don't tell me cheap managed servers)

Free Email - Lot Of Space And Email Boxes Involved

One of my customers asked me if is possible technically to offer free email services.

Since he's going to launch a big portal he want to offer such things later, for all users.

Now, there are problems as:
a) if there is any possibility to compress emails similar with GMAIL or YahooMail or so, because i can't imagine the email is uncompressed

b) how can be handled email boxes over multiple (mail ?) servers if the HDD space needed would be larger than for one server HDD ?

Managed Or Self Managed Servers

Mar 7, 2007

I've always had hosting where everything is pretty much already setup. I am now considering getting my own dedicated server. I see most good packages are Self Managed Servers.

I'm not a system admin and never had any experience managing and setting up my own server. Is this a lot of work? Is this something that is also pretty easily learned or does this really take a lot of knowledge?
