What is Managed Hosting?

In layman's terms, managed hosting is a process by which a web host will undertake the operation of your web server so you don't have to.

Managed hosting is ideal for companies that lack either the knowledge or the time to establish their server space according to their specific business needs.

Usually, the need for managed hosting arises when company staff has limited knowledge of IT systems. It is especially important when websites are very popular and require a robust managed hosting solution. E-mail and websites are considered mission-critical to the majority of businesses. Even minor glitches can cause serious setbacks. Relying on a capable managed hosting firm provides peace of mind.

But even when an organization has resources to assist with managed hosting, those resources are often best allocated to other tasks.

Benefits of Managed Hosting

Go Media offers managed hosting to our web design clients for an additional fee. Sometimes, clients ask why they should pay a us, an outside firm, to host a site when they already have an internal IT staff. Aside from the reasons mentioned above (lack of knowledge and time), there are a number of benefits that make managed hosting a great value.

  1. If you have IT professionals on staff, you know how expensive it is to employ them. Their time is often better spent on other tasks. Plus, our web hosts have concentrated knowledge of your website that allows us to respond faster and more effectively to critical server issues. If your email or website is down, fast action is imperative.
  2. Firms that strike out on their own for web hosting will soon learn it's very expensive. As web hosts, we are in the best position to garner bulk rates for hardware, software, server space and bandwidth. In the end, that saves our clients money.
  3. Issues can and do crop up outside the normal 9-to-5 business hours. Ensuring your in-house technical staff will be available to monitor the servers and fix errors 24/7 is very costly. We offer a flat monthly rate for these services. That means you don't need to sweat every update or fix.

Go Media's web managed hosting team  has been operating for years on updated Cloud system architecture. The good news for you is that we have no interest in becoming a commodity hosting company. Our No. 1 goal is provide the very best hosting to OUR clients to ensure the websites we develop:

  • Stay online.
  • Perform the very best the can.

Another key benefit of choosing Go Media is that we offer customized managed hosting solutions. We recognize that no one solution is going to work for everyone. This is especially important for companies that have many different business units and diverse technologies to support. Customized solutions make everyone's lives easier.

We also work to ensure scalability. We understand that what works for you now may not be adequate or necessary in five years. You want to be easily scalable as your business grows or changes. When trust our managed hosting team, we can help accelerate the process.
