Managed Vs. Unmanaged Hosting

Whether you are planning to create a new website for your business or thinking of changing your existing web hosting service provider, you need a good plan. But you are not sure what kind of hosting you are looking for.

A website holder must be aware of where their website is being hosted since many businesses do not think about this much. They end up choosing the wrong hosting service provider which will eventually burden you with lots of server problems.

A robust hosting server is the backbone of a website. So, choosing between managed and unmanaged hosting is important for your business to grow in the future.

What does Managed VPS Hosting mean?

Managed Hosting is provided when a website is hosted on a Virtual Private Server or VPS. The service provider fully manages the server of the client. There are many other additional benefits or services provided like backups that are done automatically, check and remove malware, security checks, etc.

What Is Unmanaged VPS Hosting?

Unmanaged VPS hosting is where the server is under full control of the website owner and they manage the website themselves. Here additional benefits and services are also not provided. Unless you have the technical knowledge or have a team of networking experts, you may find this type of hosting too much to handle.
