After deciding to use a dedicated Taiwan dedicated server, your business will face the next decision – choosing between a managed or unmanaged server plan. Most web hosting providers offer these two options, and there can be significant price differences between them. Understanding the differences will help you make the right decision.

What is a Managed Taiwan dedicated server?

With a managed dedicated server, the server provider takes full responsibility for the server’s maintenance and operations, freeing your business from the additional concerns of managing and maintaining the Taiwan dedicated server.

  • General maintenance: This includes operating system updates and patches. Reliable service providers will have a predefined schedule for updates to minimize disruption to customer services.
  • Troubleshooting: In case of any technical issues, experienced specialists will promptly address them, minimizing potential losses for your business.

What is an Unmanaged Taiwan dedicated server?

An unmanaged dedicated server is when you lease a Taiwan dedicated server from a provider and manage its operations yourself.

With an unmanaged server, you have complete control over the server and can configure it as needed, including installing any necessary software.

While unmanaged plans are more cost-effective, they require a high level of technical expertise. Therefore, this option is recommended only if you have an in-house technical team capable of managing your website. For small and medium-sized enterprises without dedicated server management, a managed plan is more suitable.
