When looking at other VPS options I’ve found pricing lower than DH for non-managed, and then $100/month for comparable Managed services. But DH advertises Managed VPS. So I need to understand what this includes.
I’ve had a DH shared account for over a decade, never had to worry about web server patches, OS or distro app patches, or security. Is this exactly the same in a VPS?
What else does DH Support handle for us behind the scenes? Get out the Marketing people - Now’s your chance to advertise!
Moving from shared space where I’m bouncing off resource limits, there’s no way to effectively monitor my sites - I know I’ve hit my limits when my sites all email me at the same time that they’ve been throttled. Are there any tools available for VPS users so that we can watch the web server for transaction time, queue count (VERY important) or memory usage? I could run “ps” in a cron process but would prefer to have something that DH provides than to move forward like this was the first time anyone has ever done this.
I just want to know when it’s time to upgrade - bouncing visitors with a server error 500 isn’t the preferred way.
