FAQ Managed Dedicated Servers
What are fully managed dedicated servers?
Managed server is a server that is under constant surveillance of the technicians of the hosting provider. Sounds confusing? Let’s elaborate on that. BlueServers will take the job of administrator of your server and will be keeping his eye on OS installation and various configurations you need to do with it. If the server requires certain maintenance we’ll help with it at the most convenient time for you. Yes even, at night. Stuff like maintenance is usually required when the hardware is close to the failure state, that’s why we do constant hardware monitoring to see if the storage can still offer the same productivity as it was able a year ago. We make sure that your uptime stays as high as possible and you get a priority in our ticket system.
Basically, we make sure that your server will stay with up-to-date updates not only from the operating system perspective but from a security one as well. Usually, all the stuff you do to your website is your responsibility. Our task is to keep the server running, so we will not code your website for you. This is because there are a lot of parameters and various configs that only you know what to tweak in order for the website to look and run as you like. But as we mentioned before we would be glad to help with documentation if needed.
What is the difference between managed and unmanaged servers?
With all being said the difference between managed and unmanaged is that everything that we have mentioned above does not apply to the unmanaged version of the server. You simply receive a server and are free to use it however you want. If it goes down because you overload it, thanks to the code loop for example you need to restart it by yourself. If something happens to the hardware you need to inform us about it and monitor it by yourself. Not that hardware will fail immediately after you rent it, it’s just because it is hardware and it tends to break from time to time. We always make sure that our equipment is fault tolerant though.
