External Server Backups
: By default, the WestHost DOES NOT maintain backups for unmanaged dedicated servers. If you would like us to do so, be sure to include this Add-on in your package!

Kernel & OS Updates
: Updates come out at least once a week for many kernels, and help provide reliability and security for your server. If you want to ease some of the burden of server management from your shoulders this Add-on can help by having our WestHost admin team conduct updates continually throughout the month.

Monthly Security Audit
: This Add-on has the WestHost admin team perform a low-level security audit on your server and provide a detailed report of any potential issues that arise. This way you can verify that your server is remaining as secure as possible.

Server-side Virus Scanning
: Your server is susceptible to viruses similar to your PC at home. Our tools help protect against viruses, malware, etc.
