Choosing between ResellerClub’s Dedicated Servers and Managed Dedicated Servers can be confusing. This decision depends on the technical aspects of your business, the amount of traffic to your website, the complexity of your business and the staff you have. Dedicated servers do offer some tech support, not leaving you completely on your own. Simply put, it means you are responsible for majority of the aspects of maintaining the server, from installing upgrades and patches and ensuring server uptime but will be provided with some support. Managed dedicated servers mean your host will ensure all the technicalities and make sure everything is running smoothly. Here we list out what the two services with ResellerClub entails so you can make an informed decision:
