Are you playing games like Minecraft and are wondering what managed hosting is? Watch this video to learn more.
Managed web hosting is when a hosting service provider leases you a dedicated server but manages the server themselves. The provider controls your server, conducts software and hardware maintenance, provides security, monitors activity, and takes care of backup services.
Though both managed web hosting and dedicated web hosting involve a dedicated server, with dedicated web hosting you manage the server yourself. This is not the case for managed web hosting, where the hosting provider takes care of server management with proactive support and notification of required updates.
Unlike virtual or shared hosting, which involves multiple users on a single server, managed web hosting offers a server for your exclusive use. Managed web hosting is similar to virtual or shared hosting in that the web hosting company works to manage the server. The difference is that with managed web hosting, the IT staff doing the managing need to understand a bit about your business and how it uses the server.
