  • Managed services - worth it?

    I'm curious about managed web hosting services. I've heard they're very useful for people that aren't very IT savvy (that's me!) and I think that potentially having a managed web hosting service might be better and easier for me in the long run.

    Anyone have any advice on whether or not managed services are worth it, and what situations you'd see yourself turning to a managed web hosting service in?

        What would you say is the average cost for web hosting services if it's being outsourced and managed by someone else? I'm just curious to know about the way the industry organizes their price structure and a bit about what to expect from a monetary perspective. If you've got any details about that side of things, I'd love to know a bit more about it.

          Well mate sysadmin is bit complex job for a non-techie person to handle. Honestly there are numerous area which new to be manually setup while setting up non-managed server which are eventually less secure and are exploited by hackers easily. Instead of that I would recommend you to play extra amount and go with managed hosting to ensure that your website in safe hands. I have been using shared hosting for a quite long time but the most annoying thing I ever face was all my 3 website were hacked in a single day due to some server side vulnerability. Luckily I have create the backup and restore all my website within 1 days. Later on I have migrated all my Ecommerce website on managed woocommerce hosting fortunately which was right a decision. All the best

            Thanks for the detailed response! Having three sites hacked in a single day sounds like a nightmare - I can't imagine how much stress that would have caused. Managed hosting definitely is sounding more and more like the way I need to go with it, I think it will just take a lot of the stress out of it for me - and sometimes it's well worth the money for that to be the case!
