Server Support Policy
Our dedicated support advisors aim to provide you with responsive and professional assistance so that you can manage your Dedicated Server effectively.
All of the user functions can be administered via c-Panel and are therefore unmanaged. The customer can administer the server directly including; enabling and installing services, creating websites and installing third party programs etc. LCN will be responsible for the server and infrastructure availability to ensure the smooth running of your server as you would expect.
The support and operations staff will manage and monitor the network and hardware for the server. This is functionality outside the control of the customer, and any problems with these will be resolved by LCN as quickly as possible.
Services supported on our servers are:
- Control Panel Web Server (i.e. needed to run c-Panel)
- Remote Access (SSH)
Third Party Software
Any software other than the core services and the software needed to run and manage the server (i.e. c-Panel) is considered third party. Any support required for software that falls outside of this should be directed to the product vendor. All software upgrades are the responsibility of the customer.
Fault Finding and Correction
We will support and correct any issues arising with the server hardware and the underlying infrastructure but cannot offer assistance with the correction of software and application faults.
We do not monitor the services running on a server. We will monitor the availability of our network and core systems. The customer will need to monitor specific services on the server as appropriate, using the monitoring tools available via c-Panel, or using their own solution.
Manual changes by User
The consequences of using SSH or other remote access to make manual changes to the system or configuration files are the sole responsibility of the user. LCN’s support staff can assist with any server hardware faults except where they are the result of manual changes.
All new servers are fully patched with all of the latest security updates at the time they are built. The customer will be responsible for ensuring that future security updates are installed on their server.
Support requests should be submitted via phone or email. Urgent issues e.g. system down, should always be reported via phone for the quickest response. Email requests will normally be responded to within 24hrs. See the contact page for phone and email contact details.
Should be initiated by individuals who have the server login credentials and the required knowledge to administer the server.
