Managed Hosting is a form of Dedicated Hosting where a Web Hosting provider owns servers which are leased to be used by a single customer.
- Dedicated Hosting users are responsible for full server management,
- Managed Hosting, providers manage hardware, operating system and application management on behalf of their customers.
Companies can still utilize root or admin access to a server, but usually just concentrate on maintaining their websites and supporting their business activities rather than wasting time on IT.
So what are the major benefits of Managed Hosting?
- Cost Savings
- Time Saving
- Single Partner
- Guaranteed Uptime
1. Cost Savings
Possibly the biggest advantage is cost, specially not having to invest in:
- Dedicated IT staff
It also enables the end users exactly know what they will have to pay on a monthly basis. The cost benefits include:
- Fixed monthly fees
- Highly Predictable Costs
Which means companies can successfully forecast issues like cash flow. This results in more cost savings for most companies. Letting the provider deal with the technical aspects who accurately assess and address your IT needs means that with Managed Hosting you only get the resources your company needs
2. Time Savings
With Managed Hosting your time is saved from:
- Fixing machines
- Updating software
- Backing up data
All your attention is directed towards your core competencies, something that is likely to save your company time and improve your bottom line. In addition, IT is notorious for equipment that is simply difficult to master, even for IT specialists. Not owning the equipment means companies do not have to waste their time mastering technology and tweaking networks.
3. Single Partner
With managed web hosting, users don’t have to worry about managing vendor relationships for hardware and software. The hosting provider takes all the headache and users never have to take the burden. In addition, by selecting a hosting provider that offers other services you can flexibly opt to other solutions such as cloud.
4. Guaranteed Uptime
With a managed hosting provider on board, it is the provider’s responsibility to
- Fight against a range of issues to ensure system uptime, reliability
- Ensuring uptime, needed to be a part of a Service Level Agreement (SLA)
Good providers manage advanced Internet network connections which means with the uptime, they also offer the network speed a company needs.
5. Server Security & uptime
A quality managed hosting provider guarantees
Managed Hosting partners limit access to physical servers using a range of sophisticated technology including biometrics, retina scans and fingerprint scans alongside traditional security such as onsite security guards. In addition, they secure data when it is being accessed or transferred using SSH and RDP protocols.
