For unmanaged servers you simply get the server with ssh access. You need to install script and control panels yourself.

For managed servers you get control panels like cPanel pre installed, so that you can manage the running services.

I know this thread is a bit old but... It's a bit more than that on the managed part... A managed provider will also secure your server, troubleshoot any issues you have and can monitor your sites 24/7. What you may want to look into however, is the differences between reactive management and proactive management. Reactive simply means your managed provider will address any issues you find or take care of any issues you want checked. Proactive means they are proactively managing your server all the time and you don't have to ask them to. They should be updating and finding any issues that come up by themselves. Hope this helps.

hi, cloud someone answer this question because I am getting confused between them.
Hi there 56ajjusingh,

Not sure if you have found your answer yet, but I'm hoping that this thread stays active to provide useful information for those who are new and looking for hosting services. Most hosting companies provide limited days on-boarding support. They'll help you setup the server and make sure everything is up and running. After the expiration of limited days on-boarding support, clients who subscribe to unmanaged hosting are responsible of managing their own servers.

Unmanaged hosting means you subscribe only to the server, without its management services. This is recommended only to companies with a dedicated team or department of technical staffs, who can manage your servers (, upgrade software/OS, reboot server, maintain network, fixing errors, handling cyber attacks) if anything happens.

Managed hosting (whether it's VPS or dedicated server) means you subscribe to a web host along with its management services. These management services may include:
- pre-installed software (control panel, operating system)
- server monitoring (to look out for any component failures and replace them immediately to avoid downtime)
- security (to look out for DDoS attacks or other cyber attacks and deal with them immediately to secure data)
- software management (to automatically upgrade your OS or other software so that the software perform at its peak at all times)
- recommended to clients who don't have the technical knowledge required to manage a server.

Simply put, if there's any issues with your server, having a managed hosting requires that the web host attend to the issues immediately on your behalf. If you subscribe to unmanaged hosting, any issues would require your own immediate attention.

Happy hosting!

Unmanaged hosting: Only server will be setup and you will be provided the root access. The client has to manage the server for any security, application install, etc.

Managed hosting: Hosting provider will check all the security issues, installation, updates. The customer only has to concentrate on website promotion other all technicalities will be handled by provider. Usually, a control panel like cPanel or Plesk will be provided with managed hosting

@56ajjusingh, Your avatar suggests that you represent a data center. Does really a data center member asks a question what is the difference between Managed and Unmanaged service ;)

Managed obviously comes with technical and system administration from the infrastructure provider.

Yes, you are saying right that we are web host and this forum admin knows this thing very well. But we are not promoting us here otherwise we have been banned by forum admin.

Yes, we ask many questions here but our intention is not promoting us, check trending sections of this forum, we are ranking at first or second position.

We provide answers to the users than questing.

Yes we ask so many question apart from you mentioned in your quote but this way we help those who are newbie in web hosting industries. (We know we ask here basic level question but some of users are not expert in every case, they may be beginner)

Last things that we always communicate with this forum admin and he always remembers us if we try to post promotional content.

This forum's admin is staring on our activities.

If you have an issue then you can complain the admin or tell us. We will improve in every case.


Best Regards

@@56ajjusingh Do whatever you like as long as the Forum administrators accept it. May I just suggest that if you are a knowledgeable person, you are supposed to ask manful questions, not questions that would make others to judge your competence. People usually ask equations to receive answers, it is as simple as that!

So if you want to ask anything, ask something you don't know or just put anything on discussion. What is managed and unmanaged can be found by one click everywhere in the web.
