Outsource The Management of Your Website With Managed IT Services

Many businesses and individuals alike are gaining a competitive advantage by hiring a managed IT services company to handle their business technology and website hosting. If you are going to be successful in today’s business climate, it is absolutely vital to have a functioning Web site to make online sales, provide information to customers, and capture customer demographics information.

Managed hosting refers to Web hosting service providers administering plans with various levels of service. If you are interested in a managed hosting service, you can expect to pay around $30 per month for low-end VPS hosting, or well over hundreds per month for dedicated hosting. The difference is that in dedicated hosting, your Web site will be physically located on your provider’s server.

You may have heard hosting service company’s refer to their “fully managed” plans. This can often be pretty relative between providers, but in general, the more you pay the more support and services you have access to. With a fully managed plan, your site can be developed and monitored regularly to ensure functionality. Under “partially-managed” plans, you are still required to perform many of the administrative functions to maintain your site. If you are technologically-savvy, this might be a better choice for you as it gives you full control and access to your site’s server.

For small and midsized businesses, or less computer-fluent entrepreneurs, it can be a great idea to partner with a managed IT services company for Website hosting. You can be free to focus on your core competencies and growing your business, and reduce the stress of educating yourself and managing your own Website.
