Question: I want to know what exactly comes under the term “Managed” in managed hosting offer? Almost every hosting provider these days is offering managed hosting and it’s confusing as to what exactly is offered.
Answer: Managed hosting broadly means that the hosting server and its maintenance and configuration will be done by the hosting provider’s technical team on your behalf. However, its not a standard term, and what exactly comes under this service offering may differ from one hosting provider to another.
So it is advisable that you contact the hosting support and ask this question before subscribing and get the details in writing. Most hosting companies however have details of what is included listed on their website or in their help/faqs sections
