At Netscan we always aim to provide the best level of support – our main goal is to ensure that our servers and services are up and running, as fast and as secure as possible.
What we provide as free support under our standard terms and conditions:
We proactively monitor our servers to ensure that all services are up and running securely at all times. A wide range of metrics are monitored on a 24 hours basis by our team to achieve this.
We use proactive tools to monitor and combat malware and viruses including firewalls, log management & correlation, hids, nids, regular vulnerability scans and many others.
There may be times when a service appears down but in fact you are being blocked from the service – to mitigate this we are constantly tweaking our systems to reduce false positives as much as possible.
We maintain the server software to a standard, secure level according to company policy. This covers Apache, MySQL, PHP and all other core server software.
We will assist you with email setup and configuration.
We will assist you with FTP setup and configuration.
SSL Installation and Configuration
You can purchase an SSL via your Netscan account portal. You will then be able to log a ticket with our service desk who will install the certificate, or you can install it yourself.
Alternatively you can use a cPanel SSL / Let’s Encrypt certificate which is free of charge and will continue to be. If you would like us to install and configure this on your behalf this would be chargeable
We will assist you with web configuration, aliases, redirects and addons.
We will assist you with basic DNS editing.
We will assist you with migrating your site from another provider.
Our team of engineers are here to help you get the best from the products and services that we offer. Increasingly we are being asked to provide services beyond the scope of support of Netscan products and as a result we now offer professional IT services beyond the scope of our standard support services
Services asked for that are outside the above categories are a chargeable service. Non standard administration support is offered at £60 for the first hour (or part thereof), and £60/hour (charged in 15 minute increments) thereafter.
Typical chargeable services include:
- Software installation (such as CMS systems like WordPress and Joomla)
- Assistance with 3rd party scripts
- Database creation and import
- Updates to website software
- cPanel SSL / Let’s Encrypt SSL installation and renewal
You may ask for services in any support ticket. You will be informed whether the service is chargeable before any charge is taken. Once you accept the charge, it will be billed using your normal method of payment.
All services are undertaken entirely at our discretion.
