Managed Hosting Service

Managed Hosting is similar to Dedicated Hosting in that it allows clients to rent or lease an entire physical server within a data center.

This hardware is not shared with anyone. In Dedicated Hosting the user rents the server, but chooses their own hardware, operating system, hard disk storage space, and also provides a technician to deal with any upgrades or problems with the user system. Managed Hosting, on the other hand, gives the customer the opportunity to rent the server space with on-location technical support and solutions provided by the data center. No server access is given to the user. Both these services provide a more flexible option for customers than shared hosting.

Advantages to Managed Hosting Services include users not having to purchase any hardware, lay out money on capital investments, or maintain and update equipment.

Packages are based on individual requirements for disk and data space. Clients can upgrade in the future by increasing bandwidth or adding additional servers as personal or business enterprises expand. These upgrades are cost effective and time efficient since the client does not pay capital costs, but instead only pays the difference between old and new monthly package fees. Server management is not a burden for the user.

Rented servers are housed in CanHost's secure facilities near the West Coast of Canada.

It has the advantage of a private entrance from the outside, and does not share its space with other commercial businesses. CanHost Inc. provides and maintains redundant power sources, backup battery, and a redundant power generator running on natural gas, and a HVAC system (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), to control air temperature and humidity which ensures optimal functioning of equipment and environment. Multiple fiber-optic cables entering the building guarantee that if one internet bundle is compromised, alternate connections will still be maintained.

Security is the foremost concern at our state-of-the-art Data Center.

Great thought has been put into the design of the building with this in mind. A raised floor in the storage area separates client data from cables and decreases the risk of potential fire damage. A zoned fire detection system takes the form of fire walls, a specially coated roof, and smoke alarms that are constantly being monitored by Data Center technicians. The windowless storage environment, which includes a multi layered electronic system boasting video surveillance, security staffing, electronic authentication and access codes, and motion and breach alarms, assures prospective clients that valuable data will not be compromised. Customers can trust that CanHost has the knowledge and integrity to protect and safe-guard their operating systems and information.
