What is the difference between Managed Dedicated Server and Unmanaged Dedicated Server?

Nowadays, two types of Dedicated servers are available: Unmanaged Dedicated Servers and Managed Dedicated Servers.

Unmanaged Dedicated Server:
An Unmanaged Dedicated Server is a server which is to be managed by the user themselves. The client will have to update software on their own, applies necessary patches, performs kernel compiles and operating system restores, installs software, and monitors security from their end. With Unmanged Dedicated server, the client are solely responsible for day-to-day operations and maintenance etc. In this case, service provider, will only monitors the network, repairs hardware problems, and troubleshoots connectivity issues. Additionally, some service providers offer partial management of services. Such as network monitoring, software upgrades and other services, but leave the general things of the server in the hands of the client. An unmanaged dedicated server is not at all suitable for someone without server management experience.

Managed Dedicated Server: A Managed Dedicated Server generally more proactively monitored and maintained on the part of the Web Hosting provider. When a client rent or leasing a Managed Dedicated Server. The service provider or host carries out the responsibility of software updates and patches, putting security measures in place. Performing hardware replacements, and also monitoring the network and its connection for trouble. In other words, when utilizing a managed dedicated server, the host provider will perform both hardware and software operations. A managed dedication server solution works well for the customer with limited server management experience. Or limited time in being able to perform the duties necessary to keep a server running and online .
