Aplus.net has assembled a comprehensive list of essentials ¬- from email and DNS services, OS patching and network monitoring to security checks and managed backups - enabling site owners to focus on other critical aspects of their businesses. Items are available in a series of three, progressively-tiered hosting plans: Basic Managed, Selected Managed and Premium Managed.

"Increasingly, the challenge for many businesses today is: can you still afford to manage your own servers for hosting and email?" points out Alex Yevelev, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Aplus.net.
