Linode Managed FAQ:

Can I designate which Linodes are to be managed?

Yes. If you are running more than one Linode, not all are required to be managed. You can establish separate accounts (e.g., production and development) and monitor only the most critical services running on designated Linode(s).

How useful is the dashboard?

The dashboard makes it easy to enter the URLs, TCP ports and IP addresses of services you want monitored. The dashboard also allows you to record notes on your configuration, add application-specific user credentials, and view issue history.

What do free site migrations entail?

Managed Service customers receive complimentary site migration(s) for standard configurations. Upon your approval, our fee-based Professional Services team can handle non-standard configurations that exceed the scope of Managed Services.


To what extent does the Managed team offer advice?

The Managed team will offer application-tuning advice for recurring incidents. Application tuning includes inspection of your configuration files (e.g., Apache, Nginx, MySQL) with recommended solutions to address the issue causing the recurring incidents.

The Managed team may also recommend a customer check with our Professional Services team about architectural modifications that can improve your Linode's performance. Managed customers receive a 20% discount on all Professional Services projects.

What is "elective" cPanel deployment?

Linode Managed includes the option to deploy cPanel. You can manage the entirety of your server, including email accounts, databases, applications, security and SFTP through cPanel’s graphical user interface.
