    Why is managed hosting the ideal solutions for your business?

    Managed hosting is more for the less experienced webmaster or business owner who might want all the advantages of a dedicated server but not want the hassle of having to perform updates or maintenance on their own. The managed hosting company will upgrade scripts, web apps or open source...
