SEO Pro David LuchtWhat is Managed Hosting?

This question is raised by my newcomers and my seasoned professionals, alike. The ambiguous nature of Managed Hosting has more to do with your hosting provider delivering additional managed services, than it has to do with an unclear definition.

Sacramento’s Best Web Hosts

CABizHost and IMarkHosting (My hosting brands) simply define Managed Hosting as a form of maintenance and oversight. Your websites, themes, plugins, database backups and security are managed by the hosting provider “Me”. Unlike standard Hosting, we handle the day-to-day management of updates to your websites back-end functions. Customers retain have root/admin access, but rarely use it. Their access to their managed hosting environment servers is typically limited to managing websites and applications through online tools.

 

Typically built into Managed Hosting

hosting-techTypically built into Managed Hosting are technical services such as software setup and configuration, service troubleshooting, site restoration, technical support, patching, updating and monitoring. Also available, at no additional cost, are advanced services like vulnerability scans, DDoS attack mitigation, data backups, intrusion detection and more.

Each Managed Hosting configuration is unique, so what services come standard can vary.
