Semi-Managed UK Dedicated Servers

A semi-managed server is the perfect way to benefit from a network presence outside of your office without worrying about high costs. A semi-managed server from DHosting includes the installation, configuration, monitoring and continued support of your entire datacentre deployment. If you have IT knowledge and require root access to your server a semi-managed solution is perfect for you.

UK-based Server Rack You don't need dedicated technical staff or an IT department. We can personally recommend a perfect yet cost effective solution to any problem.

Our semi-managed servers are provided from our own rackspace within the M247 Data Centre facility in Manchester.

All semi-managed servers come with a high level of support including a guaranteed response time to support tickets submitted online or by phone. External monitoring is provided as standard giving us immediate notification of any service issues.

At the end of each month clients are provided with detailed statistics including uptime, bandwidth usage report, disk usage report, processor usage and memory usage. Our reports allow you to assess the performance of your entire deployment allowing you to plan for future growth.
