Web and digital agencies are hired for what they do best - building highly responsive, well-thought out, and aesthetically pleasing websites and web applications. They are NOT hired for their server and hosting expertise. For the agency, hosting is simply a means to an end — overshadowed by the immense pressure to, “Go live and get paid!” It’s no wonder then that agencies are often left holding the buck in the frustrating cycle of finger pointing, resulting from slow load times, network downtimes, and security attacks.
The beauty of partnering with a managed hosting provider is that you specifically don’t need to know about your service, how it works, or what parts it is made up of – all those details are taken care of for you. In fact, a really good provider should do their job so well that you don’t even realize everything they’re doing to ensure the healthy upkeep of your site – which is fantastic, until you start to wonder if maybe you could get your service cheaper elsewhere.
