What Is Managed Hosting?

Thursday, March 31st, 2011 | Permalink

Managed Hosting  or better known and commonly referred to as dedicated server hosting is a system whereby you have all of your files, pages and the programs and scripts that they need all running on a separate server all by themselves. It is actually “your” server. There are some good things about this and, of course, some bad.

The biggest good part about this is that you will not have to worry about something that someone else could do to make your server slow down as there is no one else on your server. There is no danger of some script that they are running interfering with one or more of your scripts. Therefore, security is a big deal with the managed type of hosting.

The nature of the managed part of this is that, even if you actually have your own server, you do not have to maintain it in any way. The web-hosting company takes care of all of the day-to-day activities needed and takes care of any of the unforeseen ‘problems’ that may crop up.
