Do you do uptime monitoring of my website and applications?
Yes! However, remember that there is a different service framework for each IT service. For example, virtual & dedicated servers are very different from Shared plans. There are also different types of monitoring services. Some monitor the websites and hosting accounts' uptime per IP address or domain name. Others monitor application uptime. There are also Network Monitoring services, which help you to understand the network bandwidth on your Dedicated or collocated server(s). If you need any specific monitoring service, please open Support Ticket in your Account and tell us what you need.

What does High Availability (HA) Hosting mean & do I need it?
HA is a software service that minimizes any service outage. It provides uniform, cost-effective failover protection against hardware and Operating System (OS) failures. It monitors the servers to detect failure on the underlying physical hosts or an OS failure inside the clients' instances. If an outage is detected, the HA functionality restarts the cloud instance on another physical host, part of the Host Color's compute cluster. Operations resume automatically. All services return online. There is no need to reboot the server manually. If you want to make sure that your websites, applications, and services will return online very fast in case of an outage, you should consider using HostColor's HA services.
Does Automated Fault Tolerance really offer 100% uptime?
Automated Fault Tolerance (AFT) is a service that eliminates the risk of a service outage. HostColor offers Automated Fault Tolerance as a paid add-on service to all Cloud services. Unlike the HA, which reduces any service outage, the AFT function eliminates it and ensures continuous availability for any websites, applications, and workloads. AFT creates a live shadow server (Failover Virtual Machine), which is synchronized and always up-to-date with the primary one. In case of a hardware failure or an OS outage, the AFT automatically starts the failover VM, ensuring zero downtime.
Do I need a Cloud Hosting?
Most Marketers and Sales Agents say "Yes, you do!". We work differently! We will discuss your project to understand what you want to achieve. HC team will outline any possible IT infrastructure and service scenarios for your business. Cloud services, especially the Hybrid ones are very efficient and cost-effective for businesses, as they help them create flexible IT frameworks and to organize operations more efficiently. On the other hand, the traditional IT infrastructure solutions are simple to understand and in many ways more affordable. The HC Cloud is among the best in the industry and is affordable. Unlike Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and other major cloud service providers, who do not provide technical support unless you pay for it, the HC Cloud includes technical support at no additional charge. Why don't you Ask your questions?.
Can I use Microsoft Office on HC Cloud Service environment?
Yes, you can host your own Microsoft Office on a Cloud Desktop or a Private dedicated IT environment. You can run any business productivity application on HC Cloud - Office 2016, iWork, Open Office, LibreOffice, etc. You can use our Cloud infrastructure to design and set up any Linux or Windows service framework.
What is the difference between Cloud & traditional Web Hosting?
The term "Cloud" describes a networking model of server infrastructure. In such systems, the data processing servers that deal with computation are physically separate from the Data Storage servers. Cloud computing infrastructures are hardware redundant. In case of a physical component failure, they continue to operate and guarantee operational continuity. For a web hosting service to be considered cloud hosting, it must be delivered from a Cloud Computing infrastructure, not from a stand-alone physical server. Most hosting providers use stand-alone physical servers, however.
