Welcome to Master Control Managed Hosting
Master Control Hosting takes the guesswork and stress out of maintaining your website with managed hosting. From monitoring and security to server upgrades and troubleshooting, managing your own hosting means taking time and energy away from other important projects.
The more features and services a hosting plan offers, the more likely it is to be referred to as managed hosting. When such hosting plans are specifically tailored to and optimized, we refer to them as managed hosting plans.
So What is Managed Hosting?
All websites are stored on computers, all of which have memory, a processor, a hard drive, ports that handle internet traffic and so on — and they all need to be taken care of on an operating system level. If there’s a bug in the operating system, it has to be addressed. If malware has made its way into the machine, it needs to be cleared — and that’s just scratching the surface of all the day-to-day things that need to be done to keep your site ticking over.
This is a level of management that almost all hosts offer nowadays. In fact, it’s in their best interest to do so. Most users have absolutely no need to control their low-level hosting environment — and, if given the opportunity to do so, would mostly likely make a mess of things pretty quickly. This would lead to their website going down and blame most likely placed on the host, who would then likely be tasked with getting things up and running again.
In other words, by managing your server for you, hosts kill two birds with one stone: Saving you from yourself, and saving themselves from hordes of support tickets. Let’s call this type of management server level management — and, unless you specifically search for bare metal servers, you’ll most likely see all such features included in your chosen hosting package.
There is, however, another branch of managed hosting services that allows you to perform many common higher-level tasks on your server, for example website backups. Let’s call this second branch of services application level management.
Application level management services are the type offered in a managed hosting plan. Features will likely include: SSL Certificate, Web Hosting, SEO, Server-level caching (and many other performance-specific services); automated daily site backups; core updates; website migrations and malware scanning; the ability to quickly and easily create staging sites; on-demand one-click backups, and more.
Master Control Hosting wants to give you the freedom to create amazing digital experiences online, without worrying about your tech stack, server security, updates, or server-side optimizations.

Save Time, Money and Get One-on-One Personal Attention on your Managed Hosting Plan
In the simplest terms, Managed Hosting means the hosting provider takes care of all your server related issues. You not only rent the hardware from the host, but you also pay them for managing your website hosting. It’s similar to getting a full warranty with free oil changes and maintenance when buying a new car.
Managed hosting doesn’t just mean a spot to sit your website on. It means a team that helps you look after your servers, do your thing and deal with whatever comes your way. Unmanaged hostings just server space. No services, no support. If you’re a total tech genius with bags of time on your hands, it’s a great cost-saving option. But if you’re not, managed is the way to go.
In business, time is money. As a small business owner, the time you spending on your managed hosting plan – and managing the people who manage your managed hosting plan – is time that could be better used concentrating on your core business instead.
