Managed VPS hosting comes with a lot of services from the service provider like managing servers, taking care of security, maintaining backups, and other solutions. In the case of an unmanaged VPS hosting plan, the hosting provider is only responsible for the physical server and the hardware resources. The management of the server, along with its security management and other installations and updates are left to the customer. It is best suited for tech-savvy personnel who know their work and have expert knowledge with installations and updating. Most of the tasks are to be performed on a command-line interface.
In the case of a managed VPS plan, the service provider takes responsibility of the physical server resources, maintenance tasks, security updates, cybersecurity policy, backups and disaster recovery solutions, and much more. They also provide a dashboard to the end-users to carry out admin-level tasks like adding websites to the server, viewing the statistics, and much more.
