Nominate this to be merged with dedicated server article, and turned into a redirect -- LogicX 18:54, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

You can do this yourself. See Template:Merge, Template talk:Merge, and Category:Articles to be merged.

This should never have been merged! This is false information because VPS is shared but it can also be managed. Also, (possibly more importantly) dedicated hosting can be unmanaged. This is a glaringly obvious error. Managed hosting and dedicated hosting are two different things. I am surprised that this has not been rectified in 9 years. Surely someone would have noticed this by now.--Hypernator (talk) 19:01, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Whipping into shape[edit]

I've merged the related articles, whipped it into shape, and made it part of the new Internet hosting service series. Quarl (talk) 2006-01-12 22:39ZWindows Server Hosting


I think the section on Connectivity is really confusing. There is a lot of technical jargon that isn't explained or linked to an article that explains it. I think someone should rewrite this to make it more accessible to the average reader. Kodafox 12:00, 18 June 2006 (UTC)


On security eggdrop is said to be harmful software. It isn't harmful, but it can be used harmfully. I think that this sould be fixed. (talk) 08:07, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Fixing it now, guns can be harmful too ya know.Woods01 (talk) 07:26, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Reliable sources[edit]

I'd encourage anyone to add reliable sources to this article, as there are paltry few to support the content. I'm going to be busy the next few days, but I'll try to come back and help next week. TechyOne (talk) 10:52, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Article mentioned in comment spam campaign on blogs[edit]

This article is being mentioned in a current comment spam campaign hitting many blogs. On two blogs that I run, over 60 spam comments referring to this page on Wikipedia have hit the spam queues of each blog. Apparently, someone with a vested interest in something linked in this article is involved with this article, an obvious violation of WP:COI -- Gmatsuda (talk) 07:08, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

After looking at the inline citations in this story, two of the references are from hosting services that have a for-profit interest in providing such services. As such, they really can't be considered to be independent, unbiased, reliable sources. As such, I've added the unreliable sources template. It's very likely that someone affiliated with one of both of these web sites is responsible for the comment spam campaign that's currently running. -- Gmatsuda (talk) 07:21, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Good catch. One of the references redirects to another domain, where the links in the text don't work... looks like somebody bought a domain and copied some of the content to their own site. No encyclopedic value whatsoever. The other commercial ref looks more objective, but I don't think it meets [[WP:RS]. --bonadea contributions talk 07:47, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

This page seems to suggest that all managed hosting is dedicated[edit]

There appears to be something odd about this article. Managed hosting is something separate to dedicated hosting. You could have a managed VPS or a managed dedicated. You will also find dedicated hosting that is not managed. Essentially it is unclear.--Hypernator (talk) 17:15, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

A couple of things: first of all, I took a very long time researching the obvious, just to cite because it was being requested of me when I was simple updating nonsense; nonsense that was put back. Second, I am a mature student in Computer Science writing my Ph.D thesis on AI, that is why I am constantly researching and wikipedia is, unfortunately, one that comes up often, and more times than not I find myself scratching my head. Third, it's really simple to cite something not yours or simply delete it after trying to cite it and during the process figure our it's null and void, bogus rubbish, like for instance Complex Managed Hosting; non existent; no such concept! Copy and paste it into google and see what you come up with; this article. Forth, it's a shame wikipedia is contributing to more nonsense, recursively, not to mention improper use of capitalization, punctuation, format...on an on. I don't have the time for this. Wish you all the best, but I think you probably should reconsider your contribution(s) or lack of.AMLBaker (talk) 10:12, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
