The dedicated server needs dedicated management. If you can assure good, efficient management in-house, go ahead. But make sure it is really efficient. If you cannot guarantee that, outsource your server’s management to a hosting company.
You want to reap all the benefits of the dedicated server. For that, you need a professional team looking after it. Managed hosting is a great way to get optimum benefits of the dedicated server.
Not sure about the expenses that accompany managed hosting? Well, external server management does add to your expenses, but the cost is nothing when you weigh it against the advantages you reap of it.
Now, what exactly does managed hosting offer? For starters, you can be assured of high availability of your website(s). The number of downtimes is reduced to a minimum. Managed hosting offers a high-speed accessibility and ensures that the resources are optimized to the fullest.
With professional server management, you save a considerable amount of money that you would have otherwise spent on hiring and training people. In fact, you get to release resources that are currently occupied on managing your server for more priority work.
Imagine the peace of mind you’ll get when you outsource your server’s management. You can focus on your business without worrying about the peripheral management tasks. Managed hosting also confers on you a professional image, giving you an edge over your peers.
Managed hosting assures effective round-the-clock monitoring, timely troubleshooting, and optimization of the server. If you don’t want fully-managed hosting, you can always go for partially-managed hosting or colocation hosting.
