Liquid Web "Heroic Support"
Liquid Web's highly trained staff monitors your system services 24/7 to ensure service consistency and availability. If a problem is detected, our experienced and trained technicians respond to the incident nearly instantaneously, mitigating the impact of any service or hardware failure to the highest possible degree. As we own and operate our entire data center directly, we are able to respond quickly and efficiently to issues of any impact level. From simple software service failures to catastrophic hardware failures our on-site level 3 technicians are able to react without delay, 24 hours per day.
A large range of system software updates are handled for all clients. We update basic system software such as Apache and PHP upon request, perform security updates, as well as any other general system administration duties you may need. While a good working command line knowledge is useful, with Liquid Web, you may never need to log in through SSH again.
On average, our helpdesk tickets are answered in under 30 minutes, and our phones are answered in under 20 seconds.
Liquid Web's Datacenters
Liquid Web currently owns and operates two datacenters in Lansing, MI totaling over 40,000 square feet of space. - Our multi-homed network is powered by premium tier-1 bandwidth featuring diverse path OC-48 fiber connectivity with carriers Verizon/MCI/UUNet, AT&T, Level3 & Savvis/C&W. The implementation of premium tier-1 bandwidth as well as N+1 redundant routing hardware ensures enhanced stability and superior performance in reliability, throughput and latency. Coupled with BGP, network consistency is assured in the event of a provider network outage, low level line failure, fiber cut, or even a core routing hardware failure. Power systems are reliable and robust featuring a large centralized UPS system and massive backup generator, providing our datacenter with continual power even in the event of extended total electrical blackout. Environmental systems keep ambient temperatures at a constant and actively remove foreign particulates from the air to ensure the best ventilation possible for all servers.
All network traffic is monitored by an Intrusion Detection System to alert us to any nefarious activity at any network layer before it can impact service consistency. Datacenter entry is limited to technician staff and security monitored throughout our entire facility utilizing an array of CCTV cameras running 24/7.
Quite simply, each Liquid Web datacenter is engineered from the ground up for maximum performance, stability, and security.
Liquid Web Sonar Server Monitoring. (NEW!!!)
We are happy to introduce Liquid Web Sonar Server Monitoring. With Sonar, you can view live server statistics graphically. Liquid Webs exclusive Sonar Monitoring provides complete visibility into your server environment free to Liquid Web Clients. Sonar creates detailed graphical information pertaining to your servers performance including Load Intervals, Memory Utilization, Server Uptime, and Swap Memory.
Sonar Monitors and graphs the following information in real time:
Proactive Security Updates and Security Notifications
Vulnerability discovery, assessment and response can be a time consuming process. Liquid Web handles this responsibility on your behalf through an optimized assessment and upgrade process which allows us to continually evaluate and respond to the security of our managed servers. When a high-risk vulnerability is discovered, such as kernel or SSH vulnerability, we immediately patch your server as soon as an update is available, at no additional charge. If a vulnerability is discovered in a software package which may have a custom configuration or where an update could cause a conflict, we initiate contact with you immediately so you may advise us on to how you would like us to proceed.
Quite simply, we employ intelligent proactive security, ensuring your server is secure and functional to the highest level possible. This way you get all the benefits of proactive security, but don't have to worry about unwanted service disruptions. Of course, you can always opt out of the proactive upgrade process if you would like.
Intelligent Attack and TOS Resolution
Liquid Web will never simply "pull the plug" on your server in response to a denial of service attack, TOS violation, or billing issue. We believe in communicating with clients, and will always be sure to contact you via phone or email before any major action is taken if it is at all avoidable. We know your server is your business and uptime is crucial which is why we are proud to offer you the personal care you deserve.
Liquid Web's Complete Service
All of our servers come with your choice of Fedora Linux, CentOS, FreeBSD or Windows. Cpanel servers include the powerful Fantastico Auto-Installer suite at no additional charge. Windows servers come with Plesk. We also provide MRTG graphs from the switch port so you can monitor your traffic performance and usage in near real time. When you receive your server, it is delivered to your specifications, with all of the latest software updates installed. Your system is truly "ready to go".
How come you don't have raid options? How much does i tcost if you do?
We do have several RAID options listed in the configuration portion of our website. Look under the hard drive sections and you will find several options for each server type. Thank you and let me know if I can be of any further assistance
Sorry about that, I mistype and forgot the add "0" I didn't see raid 0 on there. Is that not supported?
We do offer all Raid options for customers that require a specific version. However, we don't offer all of them on our website as standard offerings for managed customers. If you require raid-0, talk to a sales person to explore your options and pricing. Thank you
Can you guys upgrade the OS to Cent OS 5 instead 4? If you can't, and I do it myself, would that conflict with the cpanel already installed on the machine?
Actually, I would like to know this too - I considered Liquid Web for an order yesterday but that threw me - I figured CentOS 4 was probably a mistake (what serious hosting company would be a year behind?) but I wasn't able to get through to their LiveChat, so, I went elsewhere for that server. I would, though, like to try them at some point.
I do think it is better if, when companies respond in a forum, they answer the question rather than simply refer people to sales. If nothing else, it is a missed opportunity - thousands of people will read this thread and, with one line, you could have confirmed that Liquid Web offers the current version of CentOS. It is a fairly important consideration.
do you offer fully managed server ?
if yes how much it cost?
Liquid Web are fully-managed only if you also have Cpanel installed, which is an extra $20 (good price).
The Cpanel requirement, like PSM's, is probably because it is easier for them do a lot of things via Cpanel but Liquid Web is supposed to be better than PSM because they are proactive, meaning that they monitor your server and, if anything goes wrong, they deal with it, they don't wait for you to contact them about it first.
