Managed hosting keeps the day-to-day management of servers, system hardware, and system software in the hands of your hosting provider. This comes with a number of benefits, and often allows you to focus on core business objectives and key competencies (and is often something our customers ask us about). So, to help you to boost the operational efficiency of your online business, we’ve put together some guidance on the benefits of opting for a managed hosting solution.
High levels of performance
One of the benefits of choosing a managed hosting solution is that it can offer you exceptional levels of performance for your website every step of the way. Being presented with a server that is right for your business needs enables you to get better performance along with heightened efficiency. Our technical support team also provides complete technical support that you can rely on if problems do arise.
Better flexibility and scalability
Another reason many people decide to opt for a managed hosting service is that they can provide clients with optimum flexibility and scalability which can improve business returns. Our cloud hosting system grows as your business grows making it the perfect choice when you want to add new features, tools, web applications, web pages and other components to your website but don’t want to deal with the hassle of changing your hosting provider. This allows you to focus on making the best use of resources.
Expertise & security
Hiring experts to manage your online operations enable you to focus on core business goals and key competencies. Website and customer data protection should be a top priority and it’s likely that your managed hosting provider will run some (if not all) of the following:
- Antivirus Protection
- Software Firewall Configuration
- Vulnerability Scanning
- Spam Filtering
- Updates of OS
- Running Audits for Security & more
This way, your hosting provider can ensure they have an upper hand in security-related issues and you have peace of mind. In fact, they will be able to identify the vulnerabilities before your servers are being attacked.
A good and reliable hosting provider will offer to support you 24x7x365 and can be reached through various communication channels such as; support tickets, phone and live chat. This is one of the popular benefits of opting for a managed hosting solution, where a highly trained team of specialists are always on hand to resolve technical glitches and prevent unexpected issues before they turn major.
A good use of a company’s resources
Managed hosting is one of the best investments a business can make while having an elegant, reputable online presence. It provides you the chance to run a website optimised for performance and pre-configured for easy maintenance.
Managed hosting also provides you access to state-of-the-art technology even if you’re not ready to invest in your own IT team or don’t have the time or knowledge to manage this in-house. You also won’t be stuck with the responsibility of investing in costly hardware or staying ahead of system upgrades the way you would if you were handling your hosting needs using an in-house method.
