Server Support


I Love Linux

tuxI have been using Linux in a desktop or server environment since 2000, and have been administering Linux servers since 2006. As a Linux system administrator, I have had the opportunity to work with three different web hosting companies and a regional Internet service provider, furthering my experience and knowledge in each new environment. From Mandrake, to Ubuntu, to CentOS Linux, each distribution has something unique to offer!

Server Management

I am here to lend a helping hand. I will provide you with proactive support, ensuring that your servers are fully patched, software is up-to-date, and that security policies are configured properly. All work is performed off-peak hours so your customers and visitors aren't affected.

Whether you need me for a few hours or on an ongoing basis, I can provide you with the support you need to ensure your servers are online, high performing, and productive. Every task comes with a report of the work performed, and suggestions for moving forward.

Server Hardening

My custom server hardening process covers 25+ points of critical server security vectors. With over six years of experience securing Linux servers on the web, I will protect your uptime, data, and reputation. We will work together to address your specific needs, and cater the hardening process to match your goals. Each step taken to harden your server is documented, and I send you a full report of the work performed. An additional 30 days of support related to the hardening process is also provided to ensure the server is performing as expected, and to make any further tweaks as needed.



I run a vulnerability scan which forms the basis of the subsequent work to be performed like patching software, reviewing and re-configuring the firewall, run a malware scan and clean, run multiple rootkit finders, and more!



I have over six years of hands-on experiencing configuring and tweaking Linux servers, boosting performance for services like Apache and MySQL, upgrading binaries and libraries like OpenSSL and PHP, and more!



I have hands-on experience managing cPanel/WHM and InterWorx-based servers, and running web hosting companies. I can also make sure your WordPress-based website perform well by making changes to both the server infrastructure and individual WordPress installations.
