Managed hosting is usually an extension of dedicated hosting, whereby the required hardware is owned by the hosting provider and is leased to a single client. It differs from other forms of dedicated hosting in that the day to day management and maintenance of the servers is handled by the hosting provider rather than by the clients themselves.
Server hosting refers to off site management and upkeep of the hardware resources that are designated for a company’s use.
By paying a monthly fee for a hosting service, companies can reap the benefits of having a full I.T infrastructure without all the cost associated with equipment maintenance, training and updates.
The cost of purchasing server hardware and hiring I.T staff is beyond the financial capabilities of many companies and small businesses. A typical organisation requiring its own server might spend thousands of pounds buying hardware, installing it onsite, equipping it with proper security and redundancy measures and keeping on full-time I.T staff to ensure its ongoing functionality. The need for a single server or multiple servers quickly escalates from a small investment in the hardware to a four or five-figure sum that requires ongoing attention and costly resources.
By enlisting the help of IP Technology's hosting service, businesses can remove the costly need for keeping server resources on site and in house. They no longer have to maintain the hardware, ensure its upkeep or even worry about troubleshooting in moments of crisis.
IP Technology's hosting service takes care of everything to ensure your server is always available for your company’s needs when you need it 24x7x365.
The typical server hosting solution is made up of three different services: managed hosting, virtual private servers and dedicated servers.
Businesses can benefit greatly by moving away from the traditional I.T expenditure Capex (capital expenditure) model to a more stable & manageable Opex (operational expenditure) model.
