Windows VPS Support Options

AccuWebHosting.com strives for the highest level of support available. To continue offering the level of service our customers expect, it is important to understand the three different levels of our support services. While the majority of customers only require Basic Support, we also offer a higher level of paid support that covers system admin tasks such as third-party installations, basic system administration, and general troubleshooting. Please review our two tiers of support services listed below, then continue to the Support Panel.

 

Basic Support

Our Basic Support covers general support queries and questions. A typical guideline for Basic Support is any question or issue where a support tech cannot access your server via RDP. A few examples of Basic Support are listed below:

 
  • Server reboots
  • Password changes
  • Basic configuration changes
  • IP Address additions
  • RAM/Disk changes
  • General 'How Do I?' questions
 

Self-Managed Support VPS

Self-managed plans come with very limited support from AccuWebHosting.Com. We set up initial components on the server. We provide only reboot and format support for Self-Managed VPS. Apart from the initial server setup, any other software installation is not provided, and technical support will not be provided.

 

Fully Managed Support

AccuWebHosting.Com proudly provides Fully Managed services in all control panel-based VPSs and Hybrid Servers. Fully-managed services for VPS & Cloud servers can be purchased for as low as $12.96/month (To upgrade, contact our support team). By utilizing our years of experience, you can relax and enjoy powerful Hosting without any trouble. AccuWebHosting.Com offers managed support for all system factors, which are listed below:

 

1. Physical hardware monitoring, replacement, and management

AccuWebHosting never compromises with the quality. We will deploy your VPS on powerful Intel or AMD machines with multi-core, multi-CPU and 8x, 12x or 24x RAID 10 setup for HDD. On 24 x 7 basis, we will monitor, replace and manage physical hardware components, so you will never need to be worried about this.

2. Server/Service Monitoring

In Managed Service Options, we keep a close track of your VPS on a 24x7 basis. For any Managed Virtual Server - FTP, Mail, Database & Web Services are default monitored at 5 minutes. We install the Zabbix agent in each Managed VPS to monitor the VPS services and hardware resources. The Zabbix is an enterprise-class monitoring solution to monitor the network and applications on various operating systems. Zabbix is designed to monitor the applications, services, availability and performance of IT infrastructure, hardware resources and numerous other network parameters, including the health and integrity of the servers. It's a high-performance software that can gather any type of information virtually from the network. An individual VPS Zabbix agent reports the following data to our main Enterprise Zabbix server.

  • CPU Load
  • Disk Read and Write Throughput
  • Utilization of Disk-space
  • Number of Processes
  • Utilization of RAM
  • Incoming/Outgoing data from the Network Interface Card
  • Availability of Network Services

Our Zabbix Enterprise server stores the collected data (from individual agents) in the database and render graphs for visual reference. Following are some of the screenshots taken from the Zabbix web interface.

    Zabbix has its own notification system that will send us proactive alerts for service downtime, higher resource usage, etc. If a VPS is utilizing more resources, it is possible that a customer should face a random service crash/interruption. Upon receiving such alerts, our technicians will take immediate action and resolve the issue. Any additional services like particular website monitoring or specific website URL monitoring can be handled on request. In most cases, the issue is resolved before you know anything has happened.
  1. 3. Best effort installation of third-party tools

    Looking to have a third-party tool on your VPS? Yes, we will try to install a third-party tool on your VPS, even if we've never worked on that. The VPS team will offer best-effort help installing such applications, programs, and software. Configuring them and further troubleshooting is the customer's responsibility. Every month, 2 hours of free admin work is offered for third-party tool installation. Unused admin work hours cannot be carried over from month to month.
  2. 4. Operating System & Control Panel Management

    We provide solutions to any issues related to operating system and control panel elements as well as management of every aspect of the operating system issues and control panel issues. We will also install OS updates and security patches twice a year. We will send a prior notification to all managed clients. We will perform this task for the managed clients who confirm their convenient time for this task. One free OS re-installation is offered every month. For Hosting Control Panel and Mail server software, please refer to our VPS plans. https://www.accuwebhosting.com/vps-hosting/windows For the addon control panel and Mail server, refer to software licensing details from here: https://www.accuwebhosting.com/resources/software-licensing

    Almost every ticket is definitely answered in 15 minutes and resolved within 6 hours by our Technicians. Under the Managed VPS contract, we offer 2 hours of free Admin work monthly. However, unlike other managed companies, who strictly restrict them to "X" amount of admin hours, we never do. We're here anytime for any reason.
