Each managed hosting company offers a lot of variations in their hosting plans, each designed to cater to your needs and budget. Prices range from around P10, 000/month to around P14,000 /month. Price differences are generally due to the difference in the type of OS the host provider is using, the total size and amount of the RAM, the storage size and bandwidth which are included in the offer. The factor on the agreed length of service likewise affects the prices as short-term contracts generally fetch a higher cost compared to long-term contracts.
