There is no doubt that managed hosting means increased expenses. After all, you are hiring a company to manage your server and your websites for you. You’ll need to shell out some money. The cost of managed hosting often deters organizations from going for it. Before we rule it out or adopt it, we need to ask ourselves two questions. First, do we need managed hosting? Second, how much are we willing to spend on it?
The answer to the first question is ‘yes’. Every organization will do better if it goes for managed hosting. So, everyone needs it. That does not, however, mean that everyone can go for it. There lies the answer to the second question. Your budget indicates how much is too much for you. Now, if you can manage your server in-house, go ahead but make sure you are not compromising anywhere. Going for managed hosting means additional expenses, yes, but that does not mean you are losing money anywhere. That is because the benefits you reap far outweigh the cost.
How exactly does managed hosting help a business? Well, to start with, a professional team ensures high availability of your website(s), reducing the number of downtimes to the minimum. It helps you get high-speed accessibility and ensures that the resources are optimized to the fullest. Also, you no longer need to hire and train people for the management of your server. You can release the resources for other important work.
Managed hosting offers added security to your server. Moreover, it offers back-up facilities, along with disaster recovery features. Managed hosting provides continuous monitoring and timely troubleshooting.
Above all, you get the peace of mind to focus on your core business.
