Why choose a managed server?

Magento shop hosting

Do you run a Magento store and have better things to do than maintain server infrastructure? A managed dedicated server from IONOS will allow you to focus on your customers, while we manage your updates, security patches, and administration. Your customers will also profit from dedicated rather than shared resources.

Powerful hosting platform for server experts

Whether you're a web developer, agency or just an advanced web hosting user, a managed server gives you the dedicated resources you need and you don't need to worry about updates, configuration or building out your server. You'll be able to focus on developing your site or your content.

No Linux know-how needed

So you're tech-, but not Linux-savvy? A managed server offers you the advantage of dedicated server resources and you don't need to be a Linux expert to utilise them. You can install open-source applications like WordPress with couple of clicks and access the server through our control panel.

Database servers

Our managed servers support MySQL 5.5 as localhost databases, meaning they're on the same server as you storage space and you'll be able to configure all of your settings yourself. This makes them suitable as database servers and you'll get excellent performance without having to pay for two servers.

FTP servers

Create your own managed FTP server for file storage and data transfer. Upload content to your server for your website visitors to access securely via file transfer protocol via SSL (FTPS) or using SSH file transfer protocol (SFTP).

Email servers

Need a medium-scale email server for your business? With an optional Windows licence, you can set up your managed server to work as an Exchange server and use MS Outlook as your email client. The managed service means we'll take care of critical updates.

Our server configurations

Your managed server comes pre-configured – choose from a variety of cores, processor models and storage types.

Hardware and resources

All of our managed servers are built with the latest hardware and feature powerful Intel® processors with RAID 1 hardware or software depending on your chosen configuration. You can also choose from AMD processors.

Advanced HDD and SSD storage technologies mean enhanced server performance, especially when you're pulling data from the backend. And your resources are completely dedicated, rather than virtualised or shared, so you won't suffer from the "noisy neighbour effect." This means more performance and less latency for your projects.

Managed servers

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

There are many benefits to managed server hosting, with the number one advantage being uninterrupted service and improved backup and disaster recovery. IONOS has redundant servers, network protection and automated backup processes and support to assure against data loss. Managed servers also allow for increased security measures, lower operating costs, and highly customisable services to meet your business requirements.

Managed dedicated servers generally make life much easier for the user, as these come with the full support of the hosting company and very little technical knowledge is necessary to set one up. IONOS does the hard work and delivers support as part of our managed server service, as well as handling component installation, server reboots, security maintenance, status monitoring, automated backups, and more. This option saves you a lot of time and stress.

Conversely, unmanaged hosting does typically allow more freedom and control over the server, but requires the user to install scripts, set up the control panel and operating system, handle the software and hardware maintenance and take care of all security concerns. Unmanaged hosting might seem cheaper at first but often ends up being far more expensive over the lifecycle of the server. In essence, it’s a very DIY approach to hosting.

There are several main differences between shared hosting and managed server hosting. For one, a dedicated server means that your business or organisation is the only user connected to the server, while a shared option means that other users will share the server with you in order to save costs. It’s also important to consider bandwidth and disk space, as you’ll have less to work with on a shared server, while managed servers give you resources that are entirely your own.

Some businesses prefer dedicated hosting for better server performance and response time, as well as a higher level of control and security, but others may like shared hosting if the amount of web traffic isn’t worthy of a managed dedicated server.
