What is Managed Hosting and Elastic Hosting
Posted On July 2, 2018
If you don’t want anything to do with managing Hosting infrastructure for your site then managed Hosting can be an appealing option. Managed WordPress Hosting providers run infrastructure for you, keep the site secure, and optimize performance. Managed Hosting tends to be expensive, and also often limits your ability to control your website. Many managed WordPress hosts limit your control over your site, including disallowing certain plugins and even dictating your site’s code.
Horizontally scalable WordPress Hosting is rare, but horizontally scalable infrastructure has huge benefits in terms of performance and reliability, which is why it’s used by companies like Google, Salesforce, and Facebook. With elastic hosting, your site can scale to match whatever your resource needs are without migrations or downtime. Automated load balancers shift resources across a distributed platform, and if your site’s traffic grows, your site doesn’t need to be migrated to a new architecture.
