When it comes to deciding on a third party versus maintaining your own servers, it’s best to take into account security, support, reliability & scalability. Leaving it to the experts may sometimes prove to be beneficial. For these reasons managed dedicated servers are important.
What is managed dedicated server?
A managed dedicated server is a type of remote server that is entirely dedicated to an individual, organization or application. It is deployed, hosted and managed by a hosting, cloud or managed service provider (MSP). A dedicated server is exclusive and not shared with any other customer, service or application.
A dedicated server provides functionality like an in-house server but is owned, operated and managed by the backend provider. The user/customer remotely connects with the dedicated server over the Internet to perform a suite of server based services.
A dedicated server may be used to host applications and/or services, as well as for data storage and backup services. A dedicated server also may be used internally for the hosting and provisioning of specialized services, such as implementing dedicated file or network servers.

Maintenance: A managed dedicated server host provides maintenance services that include software issue repairs, app updates, log file analysis, MySQL Optimization, reverse DNS setup & network & server boot services.
