Upgrading from Windows VPS to dedicated server
« on: April 13, 2009, 02:40:34 PM »
Hi~
Thanks in advance for any feedback~! I'm thinking of upgrading my plan from Windows VPS to Dedicated I Windows Hosting, however I have some questions regarding to the plan features... it shows there's a $50 per month per processor fee for MSSql database... does it apply if we installed the Sql Server ourselves using our own license key? How about using the Sql Express edition? Also, what does "Managed Hosting Lite" feature include for Windows servers? Does it do website/url uptime monitoring or something similar to that effect?? Thanks for any reply!

If you install MSSQL server with your license key or use MSSQL Express Edition, there will be no additional fees applied to the plan.

Managed Hosting Lite addon includes monitoring of the important aspects of server functinatlity like memory utlization, web server on the port 80, DNS server on your server by Lunarpages admins who will try to address their problems when they alert in our monitoring system.

Please advise, if you have any further questions. Please also note that official Lunarpages support for dedicated plans will also be happy to assist you with pre-sales questions. You can contact them via dedicated@lunarpages.com.
Kind Regards,
Vlad Artamonov
