Managed Hosting Explained
Opening a new business brings tons of challenges — from getting a website set up to creating a budget, there are several skills new entrepreneurs must master. Businesses today simply must have an online presence, but many new small and medium business owners struggle to determine where to begin when it comes to creating a website. We’re here to help. Enjoy the video or read on for critical information about web hosting.
What is web hosting?
Let’s start with the basics.
The first step in the process is creating a website. Small local businesses can often create their own websites using website builders, but most businesses opt to have a web designer help create their online presence. Once the website has been created, it has to find a home. This is where web hosting comes in — web hosts essentially provide places for websites to live.
What’s the benefit of managed hosting?
Managed hosting takes care of all the technical details that come with getting online. The website owner remains in charge of the content placed on the site, but with a managed hosting service, the host takes care of things like maintaining the operating system, updating the system, and running security updates.
