Flat Rate Linux Server Support

There are two different pricing systems that I use to charge for Linux server services- flat rate Linux server support, and hourly Linux server support. Some clients prefer a flat rate charge for work done on their Linux server, since the final charge is known up front. In contrast to an hourly support, sometimes it is impossible to know how many hours it will take to complete a project. Flat rate server services offer you the security of knowing that it will only cost a certain amount to have a service performed. Below is a partial list of common flat rate server services, and their respective charges. To see what software I specifically have experience with, vist the Linux software support page. If you have any questions, or if you want to get a quote for a service that is not listed here, feel free to contact me.
