Server Management

Everyone at CleverHost has been using Linux in a desktop or server environment since the 2000s, and administering Linux servers since then. As Linux system administrators we have had the opportunity to work with many organizations, furthering our experience and knowledge in each new environment. From Mandrake, to Ubuntu, to CentOS Linux, each distribution has something unique to offer!

Server Management

We are here to lend a helping hand. We will provide you with proactive support, ensuring that your servers are fully patched, software is up-to-date, and that security policies are configured properly. All work is performed off-peak hours so your customers and visitors aren’t affected. If disruptive work is to be done, like a file system check, we will schedule that with you ahead of time so that you can let your customers know!

Whether you need us for a few hours or on an ongoing basis, we provide the support you need to ensure your servers are online, high performing, and productive. Every task comes with a report of the work performed, and suggestions for moving forward.

Server Hardening

Our custom server hardening process covers 25+ points of critical server security vectors. With each of us possessing over six years of experience securing Linux servers on the web, we will protect your uptime, data, and reputation. We will work with you to address your specific needs, and cater the hardening process to match your goals. Each step taken to harden a server is documented, and we send you a full report of the work performed.

An additional 30 days of support related to the hardening process is also provided to ensure the server is performing as expected, and to make any further tweaks as needed.
