VPS Technical support means more than technical assistance for problems with the digital product. There are different types of technical support available depending on your VPS hosting tier. Some software we’ll install and configure for you while others require a charge.
Furthermore, customers have different preferences for resolving issues. Some enjoy sifting through Stack Overflow to learn different ways to accomplish something in the command-line interface (CLI). Many want to delegate server administration tasks to the hosting provider whenever possible. And we’re willing to assist whenever possible.
When you purchase your VPS hosting package, the standard server setup includes the CentOS operating system (OS) with cPanel and WebHost Manager (WHM). Below we’ll cover how to do more with the help of:

- What Information Should I Provide?

If you are an international customer, Skype services are provided to help with overseas communications.
We have a list of complex software that is most likely to require extensive work to install and configure. If you request assistance installing an advanced server application from that list, Live Support may refer you to one of the other options below.
When you first purchase a cPanel-managed VPS, there’s an in-depth assistance option that can be provided to make sure that you start off on the right foot: Launch Assist. This is a short, free duration of Managed Hosting support from system administration experts available for some VPS hosting packages. Our Managed Hosting team can help set up complex server software, web application firewalls (WAFs), log analysis, and more.
You can also use this VPS technical support to get familiar with your Linux server and meet your initial setup needs.
Below are some popular examples of using Launch Assist for VPS support.
|Server Setup||Launch Assist can be used for setting up the server with recommended configurations in server software such as cPanel and WHM. You can also get advice regarding other web hosting control panels.|
|Website Migration||Launch Assist can be used for helping you transfer your website and other data backups to your new InMotion Hosting VPS. This process can involve moving databases or website files that make up the content of the website.|
|Server Optimization||Launch Assist can also be used to optimize your SSD server performance or audit your system to advise possible solutions.|
|Server Security||There may be additional security requirements for your use case or industry – e.g. Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) compliance. Launch Assist can be used to ensure you meet such industry requirements for server security. We also have a full guide on how to ensure that you have a secure VPS environment.|
Once Launch Assist time is depleted, you can still purchase more Managed Hosting assistance at any point afterward.
