5 Reasons to use BWF for your Managed Server

5 Reasons to use BWF for your Managed Server

A Managed Dedicated Server from Big Wet Fish Hosting gives you the ultimate in processing power compared to VPS and Cloud Servers. When you buy a VPS or Cloud server you are not actually buying true CPU Cores, you buy Virtual CPU Cores and it is common across the industry that providers will oversell CPU on their Virtual Server Nodes.

Our United Kingdom Data Centre Racks are in a fully certified ISO27001 facility located in Maidenhead just outside London. You can find information here

Here are 5 reasons why you should buy your Managed Server from Big Wet Fish Hosting;

Reason One: Fully Managed Service 24/7/365
All our servers come with best effort full management 24/7. Support Tickets and Live Chat are available round the clock. Our ‘got your back’ monitoring will check all critical services on your server and react quickly should an issue arise. We also provide managed remote backups for your server ensuring you can restore your files or databases should you need to. All managed server clients are marked as VIP clients on our helpdesk giving you priority support. This means at busy times your tickets will get priority. We do provide full root access on request and KVM access but as our servers are fully managed you will never need those (but some clients do request these).

Reason Two: The leading Control Panel
We’re massive cPanel fans here at Big Wet Fish and all our dedicated servers come deployed with the cPanel Control Panel unless you request otherwise. This software allows you to manage your server effectively via a graphical user interface and perform all the common tasks quickly and easily without the need to be a Linux expert.

Reason Three: Reliable Hardware and Network
We do not compromise on quality and our Supermicro hardware is solid and reliable. We provide a 2 hour SLA for the replacement of failed hardware ensuring any downtime is kept to a minimum. We also have ‘hot spare’ hardware always racked up and on line with the most popular specifications as well as always having spare parts immediately available. Our network is fully redundant and all our Ip ranges route through Arbor Networks DDoS appliances for added peace of mind (denial of service attack protection).

Reason Four: Our ‘Got your Back’ Monitoring
All our servers come with 24/7 pro active server monitoring. We monitor our network and your server for anything that could potentially cause issues and we react within minutes should we see any issues. We monitor all critical services including apache and exim, MySQL and we check RAID status in the event you have Hardware RAID (always recommended). This monitoring will help ensure the best uptime for you and your clients at all times.

Reason Five: Freebies to give Added Value
When you deploy a dedicated server with us we give you some additional freebies to make your server even better. We will give you a license for Atomic Secured Linux (ASL). This firewall product is an amazing security suite that will help ensure the most secure experience for you and your clients. Up to ten Spam Experts Licenses will be assigned to you on request as well as up to 3 SSL Certificates to help secure the websites of you and your clients.
