John Masterson, VP Business Development for Modwest, said of the company's managed server packages, "We understand that e-business owners are more interested in running their websites than worrying about the 24/7 technical tasks associated with server administration. You run your website, we run the servers. That's the value we bring to the table."
Because Modwest uses Linux and other open source software, they are able to keep costs down and pass the savings along to their customers. Modwest's managed hosting plans start at just $299/month.
"Considering the salary requirements of a skilled system administrator, we estimate our company saves $50,000 to $100,000 per year by using Modwest?s managed server solution," says Joan Cook, CEO of LewisAndClark200.com, one of Modwest's managed server customers.
In a lean marketplace, business owners are increasingly looking to outsource system administration and security monitoring, and are wary of the high upfront costs of purchasing their own servers. Managed hosting solutions from companies like Modwest are one way to address these concerns.
