Managed Apache Web Hosting

Full management of your Apache websites and cloud applications.


Managed Apache HTTP Server

Apache HTTP has been the most popular web server for nearly two decades — and it gets even better with Managed Services Anywhere and our Managed Apache service.

Your site will be fully managed up and down the entire stack — from the application layer, down to the compute, storage, and networking layers. Lumen Managed Apache HTTP Server can help your web hosting environment sustain even the most demanding seasonal, planned or unplanned spikes in traffic.
