You should choose managed hosting if you do not have the technical skills or the time to administer a server. When comparing plans, be sure that you are comparing equal features. Are services offered in a complete bundle, or piecemeal like off a menu? Bundles may include services you will never need, while à la carte trplans may omit key features you can’t live without. Make a list of what tasks are managed and be sure that everything you need is on it.

A VPS can be rebooted without affecting the other VPSes on that machine. You have a server operating system (OS) with root access, and you can install software as you would if you had a dedicated hosting plan with your own server. A portion of the physical host’s CPU and memory are dedicated to your VPS, but you also share additional resources with the other virtual servers.
