Managed Support (What’s Included)

Described below if the scope and limitation of Canadian Web Hosting’s support for each product that Canadian Web Hosting offers. Because web hosting service by natures relies on a combination of customer supplied client software and 3rd-party products it is important to define what is supported by our company and what is the responsibility of the customer and/or 3rd-party software vendors. By default Cloud Servers, Virtual Servers or and non-managed Dedicated Server is self-managed, so you (the customer) are responsible for installing software, maintaining the server and resolving any technical issues that you encounter. Canadian Web Hosting support staff monitor the infrastructure including the network, server hardware and will perform reboots as needed.
If you require technical support and/or server administration assistance please add a Managed Hosting Support Package to your server that you gives you additional administration and priority support options.
