The following outlines the scope and limitations of support Webhostingpad offers its clients.

Common web based services. We continuously monitor and ensure all services are operating normally such as FTP, email, SSH, cPanel, MySQL and php. If you believe these services are not functioning correctly, we will manually check for you.
Server Management. We will maintain, secure, and configure all software that reside on our server. This includes Apache, MySQL, and php.
