The question ‘What is managed hosting?’ can be difficult to answer. The term is slightly ambiguous which has led to each service provider delivering a slightly different version of the same service; all under the heading of ‘managed hosting’.
Managed hosting is usually an extension of dedicated hosting, whereby the required hardware is owned by the hosting provider and is leased to a single client. It differs from other forms of dedicated hosting, however, in the fact that the day-to-day management and maintenance of the servers is handled by the hosting provider rather than by the clients themselves.
The ambiguity in the term managed hosting stems from the different ‘levels’ of management available; although fully managed hosting usually includes, but is not limited to, the following:
Server MonitoringThis is the process of scanning the servers in search of any irregularities or potential failures; when done in a timely fashion, these problems can be rectified before they develop into major issues or service disruption.
SecurityThis includes virus scanning, spam filtering, firewall configuration and operating system updates in addition to standard physical data center security measures. Security is important on any computer system/network, but it is especially important when dealing with personal or business critical data and information.
Full Back-up and Storage– A company losing data can be costly in every sense of the word; it can cause a loss of money, time and customer trust. For these reasons, it is vital that all critical or personal information is backed up and stored securely.
Managed Hosting Providers are far more likely to have both the physical and technical capabilities in place to carry out the back-up/storage process correctly.
