    I have an ecommerce website which is created on Magento framework and I am looking for the best cloud hosting option which can be considered ideal for Magento website. I came accross with couple of hosting providers like Microsoft Azure, AWS, GCE etc. that are considered among the best cloud hosting provider available in the industry. However, I am confused about the managed hosting option and un managed hosting option. I mean is it reliable to go for Managed Magento hosting service as their are companies like Cloudways, Kinsta etc. which are providing the managed hosting expeience. Or is it just an illusion created to target the audience.

    You are asking the classic SaaS or not question.

    1. Do you trust yourself more than any service provider on reliability (making mistakes)?
    2. Do you like to manage Windows/IIS/Magento patching (manually) or simply want to use the service without worrying the underlying?

    SaaS has been so popular https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_as_a_service So you might evaluate further and make your own decision. Usually SaaS charges a little bit more, but you will see that's not a problem in most cases.
