Managed and Unmanaged Hosting: What – s the Difference? #managed #servers

Managed and Unmanaged Hosting: What s the Difference?

Shopping for a new hosting plan? You may have to make the choice between managed and unmanaged hosting.

Most of us start out hosting our websites on shared servers, so we don t come across the word management at all. The term only really applies once we start looking for VPS hosting, semi-dedicated hosting or dedicated servers.

(In addition, you may come across the managed/ unmanaged dilemma when buying hosting in the cloud.)

There s a clear price difference between unmanaged and managed. but it s not a good idea to make your decision on cost alone. Picking the wrong plan could become extremely expensive in the long run.

Key Managed and Unmanaged Hosting Differences

When it comes to hosting, think of management as planned support.

  • On a managed hosting package, the host offers support for every problem or task, emergency or routine. There s a limit, obviously, in that you may not get support for a coding problem on your blog. But the operating system, control panel, server setup and any pre-installed applications are all managed supported, in other words. Often, managed hosting comes with automated backup and monitoring.
  • Unmanaged hosting is cheaper because there s no management i.e. no routine support. The host will replace failed components, reboot servers, maintain the network and keep the lights on, but it won t support any software or install anything for you. It s effectively your computer to maintain and control. You install security patches, you fix weird error messages and you re responsible for installing everything but the OS. Many hosts won t even provide a control panel or web server software: it s up to you to do that.

If you get really stuck on unmanaged hosting, your host will charge you an hourly rate for basic help. Be warned: it ll be very expensive, and it ll probably wipe out the savings you made on buying a cheaper plan.

The Pros and Cons of Unmanaged Hosting

Unmanaged hosting gives you complete control: sole access and total freedom, just as though your server were your own computer. Unmanaged services are significantly cheaper than managed services, so if you re comfortable with your OS, it s a no brainer.

But if you ll struggle to install a control panel from scratch, you ll hit problems from day one. And do you really have the time to manage a server on top of all of your other tasks? Could you cope with every eventuality on your own?

Managed hosting is far less work and requires little expertise. If something goes wrong and you re stuck, you can call on your host to give you a hand.

Which Solution is for You?

Everyone s different, so we can t give you a one-size-fits-all answer.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Could you deal with downtime if there was a software problem?
  • Are you comfortable applying security patches remotely?
  • Do you really need unfettered access?
  • Is the price difference worth the extra work?
  • Do you need a control panel, such as cPanel or Plesk?

In addition to wholly managed and unmanaged solutions, there are some companies, such as Layered Tech. that provide hybrid solutions. These setups will give you root access to your server, but will still provide a limited amount of support, usually in the form of a limited number of hours with a tech support agent. If you re not sure what to do, look into a hybrid plan: it might give you the best of both worlds.

Balancing the Budget

What s important to you: low cost, or fewer maintenance tasks?.

If you re not comfortable tinkering with the insides of your server. you should stick to a managed solution. If your host doesn t offer one, ask about a maintenance agreement or hybrid plan. And never sign up for a long unmanaged hosting contract if you ve any doubts about your ability to handle the workload solo.

Why Vanguard’s Actively Managed Funds Are a Better Bet #vanguard #actively #managed

Why Vanguard’s Actively Managed Funds Are a Better Bet

In 1991, Dan Wiener, a magazine reporter covering mutual funds, decided to get into the newsletter business. As the name he chose for his letter made clear, the mission of the Independent Adviser for Vanguard Investors would be to provide unbiased advice to clients of the Malvern, Pa. fund giant. Explains Wiener: “As a mutual fund writer, I had all this information at my fingertips that average investors didn’t. And investors got no advice from Vanguard, so I thought this might be valuable.”

See Also: Four Great Actively Managed Vanguard Funds

Within a year, Wiener had quit his day job. Today, says Wiener, the letter has 36,000 subscribers who pay up to $229 for a one-year subscription (new customers can get a one-year subscription for $99.95 at http://adviseronline.investorplace.com ).

Wiener’s candor is one of the letter’s big draws: He doesn’t shy away from blasting Vanguard when he believes criticism is warranted. Wiener, who is also chief executive of Adviser Investments, a Newton, Mass. advisory firm with $3 billion under management, spoke with us about his news­letter, where Vanguard falls short and the one fund firm that every investor should have money with. (Hint: It’s not Vanguard.)

Advertisement

KIPLINGER’S: Why a newsletter only about Vanguard funds?

WIENER: In the early years, there was no such thing as a mutual fund supermarket. So you were either a Fidelity investor or a T. Rowe Price investor or a Vanguard investor or an investor with another firm. I had begun to invest money for my kids at Vanguard because I felt it offered funds run by some managers I wanted to put my money with. Vanguard had the Primecap Management guys running Vanguard Primecap (symbol VPMCX ), which is now closed to new investors. It had a team from Wellington Management running Vanguard Health Care (VGHCX ). Jim Barrow was running Vanguard Windsor II (VWNFX )—without a lot of the managers who have been added since, mucking up his perform­ance. So you had really good managers running some excellent funds.

Vanguard, of course, is famous for its index funds. Do you object to indexing? I think you can do better. As indexing has become more popular, it leaves more stock-picking opportunities to the good fund managers. I would be thrilled if everybody indexed except for the people who read my newsletter and my clients at Adviser Investments.

How do you choose the funds you recommend? I’m not a buyer of mutual funds. I’m a buyer of managers. A good stock picker can outperform his or her index. It’s easier to do that at Vanguard because Vanguard funds have low expense ratios, whether they are index funds or actively managed funds.

Advertisement

Does the size of a fund matter? Size absolutely matters. Unfortunately, when a fund gets too big, Vanguard adds a second, a third, a fourth, a fifth manager rather than shutting it. Look at Vanguard Explorer (VEXPX ). It used to be run by Wellington and once had a tremendous track record. Now it’s overrun with eight subadvisers. It’s like putting eight chefs in the kitchen and telling them all to make one kind of soup. It’s just awful.

What’s the problem? You end up with an index-like fund with index-like risk. Until recently, funds such as Explorer, as well as Morgan Growth (VMRGX ) and Windsor II, have been staples of 401(k) plans. And in 401(k) plans, you don’t want a fund to underperform by too much. So what Vanguard has done is to dumb down these funds to make them palatable for retirement plans. Vanguard should have closed them to new investors a long time ago. But there’s a benefit to keeping the funds open: Starting a new fund is more expensive than running a multibillion-dollar fund.

Do top-down, big-picture factors play a role in determining your fund picks or your model portfolios? We—I and my director of research, Jeff DeMaso—are not trying to time the market. If we think the economy is going to do well, we might give a little more money to a manager with a portfolio that’s more cyclically oriented and take money away from a manager who is more growth-oriented. But the bottom line is, we’ve got great managers working for us, so why second-guess them? We’ve done well. Vanguard founder Jack Bogle said outperforming the market by even one percentage point per year is a huge feat, and we’ve beaten it by better than two percentage points per year using Vanguard funds. [Over the past 20 years, Wiener’s growth portfolio returned 12.1% annualized, compared with 9.7% for Vanguard 500 Index (VFINX ).]

What are your favorite Vanguard funds? My three top picks are Dividend Growth (VDIGX ), Health Care and Selected Value (VASVX ). [Dividend Growth and Selected Value are members of the Kiplinger 25 .] These three funds provide the core of a terrific portfolio. Dividend Growth is run by Wellington’s Don Kilbride. The stocks he owns tend to be what I call battleships: firms with strong balance sheets. I can’t say enough good things about having an overweight exposure to health care in a portfolio. Demographics pretty much demand it. [For more on this topic, see The Best Health Mutual Funds to Buy Now .] As for Selected Value, the majority of it is still run by Jim Barrow and Mark Giambrone, of Barrow, Hanley, Mewhinney & Strauss. These guys are excellent. The fund has just added a third subadviser, but as long as Barrow and Giambrone run the bulk of the portfolio, I’ll be happy.

Advertisement

And then you have to leave Vanguard to get a piece of the Primecap Management guys, who specialize in growth stocks. I like any fund run by the Primecap team. The firm manages three outstanding Vanguard funds, but they’re all closed to new investors. But two funds sold by Primecap, Odyssey Growth (POGRX ) and Odyssey Stock (POSKX ), are still open.

Does Vanguard shortchange its active managers? Yes. How many times do you hear Vanguard say, “We have these great active managers”? Ed Owens, the longtime manager of Health Care, who retired in 2012, had probably the single best track record in the entire industry. And Vanguard barely mentioned his name. Meanwhile, look up the “select” funds on Vanguard’s Web site. This really gets me. It says, “Build your portfolio with a few of our well-established, broadly diversified low-cost funds, selected by our Port­folio Review Department.” Vanguard selects three index funds and three actively managed funds: Explorer, Morgan Growth and Windsor II. C’mon, guys. That’s just embarrassing.

No two companies are the same.

And then some These are only a few of the qualities that Nashville IT companies offer. When you’re going through the hiring process, you should also pay attention to the way the company communicates with you. Do they make an effort beyond the transaction? Are they making themselves available to you? Remember that your goal is to find a company that will be the solution, and not the problem.

    Cloud-based IP Telephony

    Cost savings

    The traditional voice landscape involves expensive in-house infrastructure: The ubiquitous ‘tin box’ telephone system bolted onto the wall which – following sometimes considerable upfront expense – comes with a nasty catch in the hidden expenditure of upgrade, maintenance and running costs.

    Our managed Cloud telephony service model is different: There are no upgrade or maintenance charges. It’s a straightforward monthly licence fee on a per user basis. A simple pay-as-you-go model with a compelling punch line – a new IP telephone system for about the same price as the maintenance charges on your old one. There’s no ISDN line rental charges and no maintenance or upgrade charges, just a significantly reduced predictable monthly charge.

    • Enterprise-grade hosted IP telephony phone system
    • PSTN connectivity included – no need for separate ISDN lines
    • Improved business continuity – instantly reroute calls in the event of a site outage
    • Full integration of mobile and home-workers
    • Integrated call recording
    • Integration with our Unified Communications service
    • Central administration portal for customer managed adds, moves and changes
    • 99.99% availability SLA and 24/7 technical support

    T. Rowe Price Equity Income Fund

    Morningstar rated the Equity Income Fund among 1088, 1088, 933 and 675 Large Value funds for the overall rating and the 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods (as applicable) ending 04/30/2017, respectively.

    The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

    This chart shows the value of a hypothetical $10,000 investment in the fund over the past 10 years or since its inception (for funds lacking 10-year records). The result is compared with benchmarks, which may include a broad-based market index and a peer group average or index. Market indexes do not include expenses, which are deducted from fund returns as well as mutual fund averages and indexes.

    1 The Morningstar Rating for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

    “Doteasy have been absolutely fantastic over the years. The customer support team have always gone out of their way to help us and they have hosting packages available that help you to grow in an affordable organic way. When I first started, I knew nothing about websites, yet I was still able to get a project off the ground pretty easily. I can honestly say, I am not sure things would have progressed this far without their help.”

    “I’ve been using your services for about 7 years. I just wanted to say thank you for your excellent service and support. Your support staff has always been so kind, helpful, smart and understanding. I’m a nervous nellie when it comes to doing this stuff (building websites), and you’ve walked me through the hard parts smoothly and efficiently. Seems I can always count on you.”

    “Many times I have worked with the team members at Doteasy. Some excel in different areas, and others are exceptional and go beyond their daily ‘call of duties.’ Just today I responded to Edwin from Doteasy on how professional he was in handling my questions. He truly deserved a rating of a Perfect 10. Being a business owner since 1988, I know the true meaning of an exceptional worker and Edwin more than shined today. I appreciated all your help. keep on shining.”

    “Just wanted to give a shoutout to Phillip who helped me recover my website. The person who answered the call was Phillip and he went above and beyond to help me understand the problem, and he offered the best solution to resolve my issue. He also followed up to ensure everything was working correctly which was greatly appreciated.”
