Building a PC means delving into a world filled with jargon and technobabble for anyone who hasn’t grown up with a heat-sink in one hand and a stick of RAM in the other.
Knowing exactly what the specifications of your hardware is is a pretty significant thing for such expensive equipment; an eight core processor might be more expensive than a 4 core, and it might be 4GHz over a 3, but pure numbers — especially when you’ll be paying more for the higher end stuff — don’t really help if you don’t know the figures behind them.
When you’re upgrading from shared web hosting, a Virtual Private Server has two distinct options when it comes to hosting: managed and unmanaged.
Essentially, the difference is as follows. A VPS can have a lot of upkeep, server maintenance consisting of security, upgrading and updating, patching, installation and configuration. Choosing a Managed VPS solution gives the majority of these tasks to a 3rd party (us!) to do them for you, saving you a large amount of time and hassle and giving us full responsibility in maintaining your service uptime.
