What is Managed Server Hosting?

 A managed server provides you with an entire web server that is tailored to your needs and fully managed by our experienced team. For sites that need more resources than shared web hosting can offer, a managed server is an ideal option.

This solution is ideal as a high-end web server, for e-mail and collaboration, hosting a web development project, or for tasks that require the full resources of a server.

We recommend it for customers who want to leave all the servers to the reliable and competent engineers of Hetzner.

Therefore, root access is not available for this hosting plan. You can put all your websites on this one server without having to pay hosting fees for every added site.

Managed hosting is typically an extension of dedicated hosting, with the required hardware owned by the hosting provider and leased to a single client. However, it differs from other forms of dedicated hosting in that the day-to-day management and maintenance of the servers is handled by the hosting provider, not by the clients themselves.

The ambiguity of the term “managed hosting” arises from the various “management levels” available.

Fully managed hosting usually includes

Server Monitoring –

This checks the server for any irregularities or possible errors. If done on time, these issues can be resolved before they become major problems or disruptions to the services.

Security –

Includes virus scanning, spam filtering, firewall configuration, and operating system updates, and default physical data center security. Security is important in any computer system/network, but is particularly important when it comes to personal or business-critical data and information.

Full backup and storage –

A company that loses data can be expensive in every way. This can lead to a loss of money, time and customer confidence. For these reasons, it is important that all critical or personal information be securely stored.
Managed hosting providers are more likely to have both physical and technical capabilities to properly execute the backup/storage process.

Server Configuration and Maintenance –

Managed hosting providers can provide expert personnel with the expertise to ensure that the hosting solution is initially configured to effectively meet the customer’s requirements, and then provide the required server maintenance for the smooth operation of the server Platform performs

Support –

An attractive benefit of managed hosting is that it always provides qualified support in case of problems. Ideally, companies provide 24×7 telephone support for people. In some cases, support is offered by e-mail.
Managed hosting also offers business benefits, which include, but are not limited to, the following:

Flexibility –

Managed hosting is a flexible solution – not a one-size-fits-all solution – and vendors can work with clients to achieve a solution tailored to their business’s budget and needs. As these requirements change, managed to host providers can respond in good time to ensure the hosting platform continues to meet these needs.

Reduced Operational Costs –

The hardware and expertise required for internal hosting can be very costly. For many companies, the costs outweigh the benefits. Managed hosting can be a more cost-effective IT solution without compromising on aptitude or control.

Use resources more effectively –

If your company employs IT, staff, you know better than anyone that experienced IT staff can be expensive. Against this background, it makes sense to make the best possible use of this resource. If you use a managed hosting service, the provider will take care of the ongoing operation and maintenance of the servers and infrastructure. This means internal IT staff can focus on other, more important tasks.
