    With just a low payment of 45$ per month, I've received all the assistance I will ever need with server management services. Help I've received so far ranges from smooth server migration, sever + web server enhancement (improve load times), security upgrade to 3rd party software/app support (fix errors, etc..). Customer support is epic, always there when I need him. Able to reach him via email, messenger and skype. In this case, It appears as if the service provider is in loss not the subscriber.

    I fully recommend Michael. As soon as I signed him up, he spotted a bad HDD on my dedicated server and had my provider replace for free; something I would never have noticed myself. He has responded to all email requests, resolved any problems and helped with all server configurations. I trust that he really knows his stuff and have no hesitation recommending him.
