It’s clear that managed website hosting can take a lot of the headache out of owning a website. It’s the relief of knowing your key business asset is in safe and professional hands. Your hosting company can handle all of the tricky aspects of hosting, including automatic software installs, updates, website themes, and security to provide full time cover.
For most website owners, there are major benefits of using managed hosting services over using a dedicated server or running a server yourself. Here’s a look at five distinct benefits of managed web hosting, and an insight into what we offer at httpsimple!
1. Automatic Software Installs & Upgrades
Anyone with a WordPress website (that’s over 50% of all websites now!!) knows that staying on top of platform updates is a big deal. With managed hosting, it is one less thing to think about. WordPress is always kept up to date.
Automatic software updates, installations and upgrades will save you time, because you won’t spend time managing site information when you planned to make content changes.
This might seem like a tiny time, and money-saver, but can add up in the long run.
2. Automatic Scaling
Do you ever worry that your website will grow and eventually get too much traffic? It can happen, particularly if you are linked from a popular or trending website for one of your products or services.
Managed hosting can stop you from worrying about this potential issue, as managed hosting comes with server monitoring that keeps an eye out for irregularities or potential failures, with an ability to give your site more bandwidth to keep it running if traffic starts flooding in.
How do we know this works? We have a sleep well guarantee that means your peace of mind is safe with us
3. Automatic Backups
Speaking of backups, this is another chore that is essential, but often left by the wayside. The one day you think nothing bad will happen, inevitably, something does. Website owners who perform manual backups often fall out of the habit, only to find that when a backup is needed, the content is old or crucial information is missing or out of date.
Managed hosting takes care of backups for you – twice a day!. You’ll always have a usable version to ensure that if something does happen to your precious data, it can be recovered and restored when you need it.
4. Easy To Use, Professional Email Service
Like everything else in this blog, a professional email service is provided as part of our package.
