About Managed Dedicated Servers
A managed dedicated server
is a good solution for those who need an entire server, but don't want
the hassle of providing the support the server needs to run smoothly without
any concerns of outdated software.
With a managed dedicated server,
your host will provide technical support for the server, including upgrading
when new patches or updates become available, and to provide any maintenance
it may require. If your server goes "down", your hosting company
will get it back online for you.
A managed server can be quite
expensive, so price is something to keep in mind when you are considering
this route. But many view the added expense as worthwhile for piece of
mind, particularly when there could be significant lost income if there
is a problem with the server.
If you are technically savvy
enough to handle the support and maintenance yourself, you may want to
consider an unmanaged dedicated server
