How much time can you save with a fully-managed VPS? | Heart Internet Blog – Focusing on all aspects of the web

At Heart Internet we offer both self-managed and fully-managed VPS plans.

Both of these options come with their own unique benefits, but there’s one major reason people choose a fully-managed plan over a self-managed plan.

This reason?

To save time.

All six of our Fully-Managed VPS packages come with unlimited server admin included.

Fully-Managed VPS customers can call on our expert team at any time to help with set up tasks, installations, updates, upgrades, optimisation tasks, security tasks and more.

In fact, there are more than 25 categories of tasks you can request help with when you have a Fully-Managed VPS plan with us.

So what does this all this support look like in terms of real-world time savings?

We break down the time you can save on just a few of the available tasks below…

  1. PHP module and extension installation

Usually, our experts carry out this task in 10 minutes – saving you enough time to make a cup of tea.

  1. PHP version upgrade

Typically, this is another ten-minute task. Hand this over to our experts and use the time to do some stretching at your desk. Research suggests that stretching for just 10 minutes a day, three times a week, can help reduce stress and anxiety.

  1. Email spam review

Pass this task on to our experts and you’ll free up enough time to watch a cheeky episode of your favourite sitcom – a whole 30 minutes.

  1. Htaccess changes

This task takes between five and 10 minutes, all being well. Why not use it to water an office plant? Having plants in your office has been shown to have all sorts of benefits from reducing stress to increasing productivity.

  1. Connection string repair

Handing this task over to our team frees up around 20 minutes of your time. That’s enough time to read 10 pages of a book.

  1. Search and replace

Depending on database size, this task takes around two hours. Of course, you could use this time to tick off a few more items from your to-do list, but why not claim the time back for an exercise session. Hit the gym or go for a swim?

  1. Disk space audit

This task takes around half an hour to carry out, so why not clock off work early and use the time to indulge in a bubble bath?

  1. Content migration

Content migrations can take an entire day to carry out. So you can either use that time to get more work done, or how about taking a self care day? Spend some time with your family? Go for a long walk? Book into a spa?
