When you have a shared hosting account, the hosting provider manages maintenances, updates and backups, but this isn't the case with virtual and dedicated hosting servers. If you need a separate machine because a shared package does not have enough system resources to support your web programs or you simply need specific custom software to be running on the server and it is not present within the shared one, you may not have much choice with regards to what sort of hosting you can use. While this won't be an issue in case you have experience, you may come across difficulties in case you've never had a web server of your own. That is the key reason why we offer a Managed Services solution that you can include to your server package anytime. It includes a range of things including weekly backups, Operating System updates and installation of third-party software, so you'll not need to spend time and efforts on this type of matters.
