Why Managed Web Hosting?

Truth is web hosting is cheap! However managed hosting is not. Simply put, with managed hosting you don’t have to worry about server downtimes and other technical issues. You focus on running your business and your provider focuses on making sure your website is up and secure. Typically the hosting provider is responsible for setting up and maintaining every aspect of the website. This may include configuring hardware, installing and configuring software, technical support, patch management, system maintenance, monitoring, backups, disaster recovery, vulnerability scans, intrusion detection, and updates.

Managed web hosting is beneficial for small to medium sized businesses since it is very costly to hire a full-time in-house webmaster to maintain their websites. Most people who select managed web hosting do so to minimize the amount of hands-on work needed to maintain their website either because of limited IT knowledge or limited time. Although managed web hosting plans are more costly than shared web hosting plans, business owners save on resources and time on maintaining their website.

On the low end, managed web hosting cost $1,500 to $3,000 annually per website. On the high end, managed web hosting can cost $40,000 to $60,000+ annually. When you consider that most webmasters charge between $60 and $150+ per hour and a basic website requires at least 2 hours of maintenance per month, expect to pay a minimum of $120 to $300 per month. Beware of bargain basement pricing. The savings you claimed on that bargain basement service will be wiped out if your website is down for a significant amount of time or you have to rebuild from scratch.

Below is a comparison of the services provided by a traditional web host and CrucianPoint. A traditional web host is a company like GoDaddy, Hostgator, 1and1, BlueHost, and Dreamhost. If you would like more information or have questions, contact us.
