PeakFreq Managed Hosting vs GridPane Self-Managed Plans
The primary differences between PeakFreq managed hosting and our Self-Managed plans are:
- PeakFreq is a managed service. This means we monitor your servers, and take an active role in their management.
- Like Cloudways, the primary competitor to this new service, we pay for these servers directly, and then lease them to you.
- The scope of support is slightly different, and we will take care of some basic server tasks that you would otherwise need to take care of on our self-managed plans.
- On Core and Panel plans, PeakFreq servers get ticket access to our support team.
- PeakFreq unlocks some features that are not available on our Core and Panel plans (details in the section above).
That all said, the primary reason you should add new PeakFreq servers is to access the fastest CPU cores available AND get proactive server monitoring and management for one low fee.
PeakFreq Scope of Support
Our full scope of support article can be found here:
Our PeakFreq service has its own addendum within this article, detailing some additional support items which include:
- Management of your server via Vultr
- Migrations from your current provider to PeakFreq
(Limits apply, additional white glove migrations can be purchased)
- The installation of IonCube Loaders on your servers on request
- We will create general page caching exclusions for you on request
- We will create basic 7G WAF whitelist rules for you on request
- Initial debug for 403, 500, 502, 503, and 504 HTTP errors
- Resource monitoring that includes server resources, microservice health, server load, and file systems issues. *It does not include individual site monitoring or optimization. We are not responsible for your site(s) codebase.
Our support team may require action to be taken on your part. This may include – but is not limited to – freeing up disk space, reducing the number of sites on a server (due to support tickets being created due to too few resources on your server), or moving sites to a bigger server.
PeakFreq Support Tickets
Core and Panel plan accounts have access to support tickets for PeakFreq servers.
Full details on how to get support for your account can be found here:
As these servers are part of our managed service, our systems are hooked into them, monitoring for alerts and resource usage that could result in serious issues (for example, disk space filling up to 100%), or site performance plummeting.
These notifications are channeled directly to our support team so that we can help resolve issues before they become critical.
Monitoring includes server resources, service health, server load, and file systems issues. It does not include individual site monitoring.
