The Advantages of Managed Hosting for .NET Developers

Martin OrtegaFor those developers who have been looking for an alternative hosting solution to the giant Public Cloud Hosting Providers because you are fed up with the unpredictable hosting costs and the “never-there” support, then you’ve come to the right spot.

Let me explain and get to the point.

In tech, we can’t know everything. When given the task of setting up one of your clients on AWS or Azure, you may encounter some learning curves that you probably would rather not deal with. We understand your frustration and we are here to help you. Let me tell you about some of the advantages Managed Hosting Solutions with Everleap provides for the .NET Developer.

Expert Technical Support
Here at Everleap, we have a great team with many years of experience in different technology areas. When ASP.NET was first introduced, there were no open-source or commercial hosting automation systems out there based on ASP.NET. So, our team built our own shared hosting automation system using ASP.NET, and we launched DiscountASP.NET back in 2003 as the first shared hosting provider focused on ASP.NET Hosting.

We launched Everleap in 2014 to offer our Cloud Shared Hosting platform. We then discovered a huge need for Managed Hosting services. Why? Some of our Shared Cloud Hosting customers were outgrowing the shared environment and needed to upgrade to a more robust system, while others required some special customizations that couldn’t be accommodated with a Shared Hosting platform.

So, the bottom line is that we understand the needs of .NET developers because we are .NET developers. We speak your language.

Technical Support Included
We’ve established that we can speak .NET, but what also separates Everleap from the other giant Public Cloud Providers is that we include our expert technical support as part of our Managed Hosting solution. You don’t have to pay an extra monthly fee or some percentage of your monthly hosting fees to get technical support from Everleap. We are here to help you succeed online.

Predictable Pricing
So, some of our customers who outgrew our shared hosting solution moved to Azure or AWS. However, many developers quickly found things confusing with the seemingly infinite technology service options and how the services are billed. Services are metered, so you pay for the resources you use, which may sound good, but in practice, you don’t know what your bill will be at the end of the month. The unpredictable pricing can be very scary. With the Public Cloud, you typically pay for the server resources by the minute and the in/out bandwidth usage. So, a traffic spike or an errant coding mistake can cost you big time.

With Everleap’s Managed Hosting service, there are no surprise bills. We quote you the monthly price you will pay upfront; bandwidth is also included in the service. In addition, technical support and consulting are also included. And, we also include monthly system administrator time as well – discussed in the next section.

Managed Hosting at Everleap includes two hours of System Administrator time per month. You can use this time for database tuning, database migrations, application upgrades, cybersecurity enhancements, consulting…etc. You will not be alone in trying to figure out or work on complex technical issues. We are here to help you.

Advanced Monitoring
Another service that the .NET Developer is going to love is our Advanced Monitoring service. Beyond monitoring whether the server is up or not, we offer services to monitor your server resources and application. If we see an issue, we will proactively contact you to discuss what we are seeing and recommend solutions.

Easy Scaling
Our fully managed service is built on a Hyper-V Hyper-Converged system, allowing us to quickly expand your system in emergency situations. For example, let’s say you had a great ad campaign, and now, suddenly, your web server needs more RAM. Our Advanced Monitoring service will likely alert us of the memory issue before you notice it. But if we did not proactively contact you, you can contact us for support. If you need more server resources, we can provide you with a quick reboot and light up additional memory. This isn’t your typical VM setup. We can even upgrade your servers to a load-balanced environment on our system. We can set you up with your own private network, if you require it. We can even set you up with a domain controller, if you ever need it.

Website Migration
We offer assistance in transferring your website to our servers, saving you time and effort. We would need a backup of your current website files to do this. Most clients provide us with a backup via FTP. Additionally, we would require a copy of your database backup. Our team will then restore your website to our managed servers, and you can proceed with testing it on our system. Once you are satisfied with the results, we will migrate your website one final time and ask you to update your DNS A records to point our Managed Web Server.

Long story short, we want to become your tech team for your mission-critical web application.
