Why Choose Managed Web Servers Over Non-Managed Web Servers?

If you are looking for a reliable, secure, and hassle-free hosting solution for your website or online business, you may have come across the terms managed web servers and non-managed web servers. But what do they mean, and what are the advantages of choosing one over the other?

What are managed web servers?

Managed web servers are web servers that are rented by a customer from a hosting company and are managed by the hosting company’s technical experts. The hosting company will configure the hardware and install the proper operating systems and software for the customer. They will also perform regular maintenance, updates, backups, security, and troubleshooting for the web server. The customer can access the web server through a control panel and handle basic tasks, such as creating email accounts, databases, or domains.

What are non-managed web servers?

Non-managed web servers are web servers that are rented by a customer from a hosting company and are managed solely by the customer themselves. The hosting company will only provide the physical hardware and the internet connection for the web server. The customer will have to install the operating system and the software, configure the web server, and take care of all the web server management tasks, such as updates, backups, security, and troubleshooting. The customer will have full root access to the web server and can customize it as they wish.

Advantages of managed web servers over non-managed web servers

Choosing a Retail Hosting managed web server over a non-managed web server has many benefits, such as:

  • Time-saving: With a managed web server, you don’t have to worry about installing, updating, or maintaining your web server, as the hosting company will take care of all these aspects for you. You can save time and focus on your core business, such as developing your website, marketing your products, or serving your customers.
  • Cost-saving: With a managed web server, you don’t have to worry about hiring or training your own IT staff, buying or maintaining your own hardware, or paying for additional software licenses. You also don’t have to spend money on fixing web server issues or recovering from downtime. The hosting company will provide you with everything you need for a fixed monthly fee, which can be lower than the total cost of owning and managing your own web server.
  • Security: Security is one of the most important aspects of any hosting solution, as it protects your data, your website, and your customers from cyberattacks, data breaches, or malware. With a non-managed web server, you are responsible for securing your web server and keeping it up to date with the latest security measures. This can be challenging and risky, especially if you are not an expert or if you have multiple web servers to manage. With a managed web server, you can rely on the hosting company to provide you with the highest level of security and protection. The hosting company will monitor your web server for any threats, install and update security software, perform regular backups, and restore your data in case of any disaster.
