understanding the difference between fully managed and self managed hosting

In this post, I will be teaching you the key differences between Fully Managed and Self-Managed hosting. This applied to both our VPS and Dedicated server plans.

What is Fully managed hosting?

With fully managed hosting, your provider will manage and maintain your server. This is so you don’t have to worry about any of the intricate details of running an internet server.

The most typical reason for business owners and individuals picking a fully managed hosting option is due to a lack of knowledge and experience in running their own server. If this is you, we recommend opting for fully managed hosting.

Key benefits of Fully Managed hosting.

  • Server maintenance
  • Software and hardware updates
  • System monitoring
  • Data protection
  • Security
  • 24/7 tech support

What is Self-Managed hosting?

Self-managed hosting plans include no maintenance or management by the hosting provider. Self-managed hosting is great for individuals who have a keen technological understanding and experience, and who want complete flexibility with their server.

Top benefits of Self-Managed hosting.

  • More customization
  • Much cheaper than fully managed hosting
  • You can pick the level of security
  • You have the freedom to install any applications you like, and whenever you like.

To conclude.

The hosting option that you choose will ultimately depend on your technical ability and the amount of time you have to spare. View our Fully Managed and Self-Managed hosting options below.
