Information technology expenses are one of the most significant costs categories for modern businesses, especially for companies with Internet-oriented business models. Among the most significant IT related costs, the cost of administering servers, including web, database, and mail servers, can reach 6-figure sums every year. It’s no surprise that companies of all sizes look for opportunities to downsize administration costs while keeping or improving the reliability of their hosted applications.

As a recent article from WebECS shows, managed hosting solutions are much more affordable than hiring an in-house server administrator. Additionally, the Increase Reliability and Decrease IT Costs by 60% by Using Managed Hosting Services article demonstrates that the quality of the managed hosting services is in most cases superior to in-house server administration, thanks to non-stop monitoring and quick reaction times.
