December 8, 2010 by  

Website Hosting ToolboxATLANTA – A Small Orange, a provider of high quality shared, VPS, reseller, and dedicated web hosting announced today that is has officially launched a new service offering called Proactive Support.

Proactive Support enables dedicated server and VPS hosting customers to have a one-on-one phone consultation with a systems administrator from A Small Orange to define a personalized list of activities, checks, or other functions that the systems administrator will then perform once a month.

For example, a dedicated/VPS hosting customer could work with a system administrator to create a checklist that includes the system administrator checking if updates are available for a script, that backups are running properly, and that no email accounts are at risk of exceeding their quotas. All of these things would then by checked by A Small Orange once a month and the results of the checks would be communicated back to the customer.

In addition to defining checks, customers with Proactive Support can work with their dedicated system administrator to define regular maintenance tasks. For example, the system administrator could optimize databases tables, delete old backups, or other similar tasks.

“There are things that people should do consistently to ensure their web hosting accounts and servers are as secure, reliable, and functional as possible,” said Douglas Hanna, CEO of A Small Orange. “Proactive Support takes that burden off of our customers and shifts it to our team of professionals.”

Proactive Support can be added to new or already existing dedicated or VPS hosting plans at A Small Orange. Pricing, which varies depending on whether customers have dedicated or VPS web hosting, starts at $15 per month.
