    What does managed hosting mean?

    Hello, there

    I was wondering... We all know what is unmanaged hosting (speaking in terms of VPS/Dedicated), but what does managed hosting assumes?

    How far managed services go? Does managed means "setup and flawless runing" or customer can contact service support and tell: "Today i want to install eg. Postfix on my server, when that can be done?"

    Can someone clarify what exactly managed services are?

    Thank you

    Managed does not mean setup and flawless running or the service provider will install your application for you. What managed does mean is that the configuration and maintenance of the server and core software will be handled by the service provider. The major updates of the application are also handled by the service provider. You will have install your application yourself. For example, I am using Cloudways managed hosting. All I have to do is to select the application I want to install, like PHPStack, and select the hosting, like AWS, and click launch. I can launch a website on cloud in under 5 minutes. On the other hand, if you were doing this manually it would have taken days to do that.

    Managed hosting refers to the hosting service that is managed by the hosting company on your behalf. All server maintenance and updates are done by skilled technical staff in the hosting company.

    In Managed hosting the required hardware is owned by the hosting provider and is leased to a single client and stems from the different levels of management available.

    Managed hosting is an IT provisioning model in which a service provider leases dedicated servers and associated hardware to a single client. The equipment is at the hosting provider's facility and managed there by the service provider.
