Which of those two is more appealing in webhosting and what is their difference? I had experience of hosting game servers before and used dedicated only, are managed ones any good?


A dedicated server is a whole server on which the project is located, and hosting is a part of the server. Usually dedicated servers are used for large projects that need a lot of RAM, ip, frequent backups, because the server is, of course, more expensive. Hosting is enough for a small project.

Each of these types of servers has its own strengths and weaknesses, so a dedicated server is running 24/7, which in the end will result in a more "heavy" check, I mean that the price is much higher. Its advantages are more extensive control and the ability to manage the entire server. Managed hosting can work both 24/7 and only during a direct connection to it (the price is based on the time of operation), in addition, management and control over the server is reduced, although the owner of such a server gets more access than compared to a regular web host.


If you have already clearly decided on the need to rent a dedicated server, it remains to choose a host that offers managed hosting. Basically, the management service is offered either by the included service, or optionally. The first case is a little cheaper. However, at the same time, you will definitely be offered a package of services where you will not be able to make your own adjustments, determining which items you need and which you do not.

Ordering managed hosting as an auxiliary function will cost a little more. But, at the same time, it is very important that you will be given a choice about the list of services that are included in the package.

Managed hosting is in any case a cost-effective purchase, since full-fledged server administration takes too much time. When selecting a company that offers dedicated server rental and full-fledged managed reliable hosting, pay attention to the opinion of the Internet community about this hosting provider.
