iSLE Introduces Server Setup for Dedicated Hosting Services

Tokyo – April 5, 2010 – GMO Hosting & Security hosting brand iSLE today launches Setup Service, a new option that provides initial server configuration to customers using our dedicated hosting solutions.

Background to Service Introduction

In the last few years we are seeing more customers opt for dedicated servers over shared servers due to a reduction in pricing along with an increase in demand for high spec servers capable of hosting rich content. However, many clients are concerned about the technical knowledge required and hesitate to make the switch. Many others expose their dedicated servers to risks of malware and DDoS attacks because they lack understanding of the protective measures required.

The new GMO-HS iSLE Setup Service is built on fourteen years of server management experience and provides the necessary initial configuration necessary when constructing a dedicated server. This is an ideal solution for first time dedicated server users enabling the service to be used much like a shared hosting service.
