QuickBooks Hosting vs QuickBooks Online

Although they sound similar, QuickBooks hosting and QuickBooks Online are different services.

QuickBooks hosting lets you access your QuickBooks software from a cloud server, where all your data and files are safely stored and operated. With a unique username and password, you can log in to your remote desktop from anywhere, access your data, and use the software just like you would from a local desktop.

QuickBooks Online, on the other hand, is a cloud-based product created and managed solely by Intuit, the maker of QuickBooks. This software is accessed by logging in using a web browser and only supports QuickBooks Online, meaning QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier and QuickBooks Enterprise are not compatible. This cloud-based version also offers a different user experience and features than what you may be used to in the desktop version.

See a brief overview of the main differences in hosting QuickBooks via Summit below:

If you want the features of a QuickBooks Desktop product with the benefits of a dedicated server at an affordable price, QuickBooks cloud hosting is the way to go.

Summit can help you get the benefits of QuickBooks Desktop with hosting services. That includes providing QuickBooks Enterprise hosting, QuickBooks Pro hosting, and more – all on dedicated servers that secure your data and improve performance.

QuickBooks Products Hosted by Summit

Summit Hosting can provide QuickBooks hosting of your organization’s preferred software version. We’ve got you covered from QuickBooks Pro and QuickBooks Premier to QuickBooks Enterprise and QuickBooks Accountant.

We can also integrate virtually any related accounting applications you need to help your business. Some of our most popular QuickBooks applications include:

Dedicated QuickBooks Hosting Improves Performance & Security

Using dedicated servers for QuickBooks hosting ensures the best security, highest level of customization, and the greatest overall system performance.

Unlike shared server hosting, dedicated server hosting doesn’t make your company share resources like bandwidth, storage, and memory with other companies. Instead, you can build out your environment with the resources, applications, and software you need to do your job efficiently. Summit’s tech team will make it easy to customize your cloud environment, doing all the heavy lifting and technical work for you.

Dedicated servers also improve security. With a shared server, your data is only as secure as the companies you’re sharing your server with. If they’re compromised, your data is at risk. With Summit Hosting’s dedicated servers, you’re in control.

Dedicated Services Support Growth and Flexibility

Dedicated servers grow with your needs. As your business changes, you can:

  • Upgrade your QuickBooks software and buy extra QuickBooks user licenses
  • Scale up (or back) your resources
  • Integrate additional cloud-compatible apps or tools
  • Add another security step at login with 2-Factor Authentication

These adjustments are easy for our engineers to make – all you have to do is reach out, let them know how they can help your business and they’ll handle the rest.

Expert Support and Standards

At Summit Hosting, we maintain high standards for our QuickBooks cloud hosting. Our support and implementation teams are trained and ready to help you understand the benefits for your business when a new version like QuickBooks 2020 is released. We use industry-leading technologies and frequently test new tech to ensure we’re providing the best services to our community of QuickBooks hosting users.

Through our studies, like comparing shared servers vs dedicated servers, we’ve found that dedicated servers are the only environments to consistently meet our expectations for cloud hosting quality and performance.

QuickBooks Cloud Hosting FAQs

What is QuickBooks hosting?

QuickBooks hosting, also known as QuickBooks cloud hosting or hosted QuickBooks, is when licensed copies of Intuit QuickBooks Desktop products are installed on cloud servers. These servers are accessible by users via a remote desktop. QuickBooks cloud hosting providers allow authorized PC and Mac users to safely access their accounting software from anywhere with an internet connection.

Can I host QuickBooks in the cloud?

Yes. While QuickBooks Desktop products were originally installed on a local machine, third-party QuickBooks hosting companies like Summit Hosting allow you to install QuickBooks on a cloud server that you can access from anywhere with internet, at any time.

Can multiple users use QuickBooks at the same time?

Yes. You may need to purchase additional users for your QuickBooks product, but once you have the number of users you need you can use the multi-user mode in QuickBooks. The multi-user mode allows multiple people to use your QuickBooks application at the same time through your server network. If you are not using QuickBooks cloud hosting, you may also need to install QuickBooks Desktop on multiple local machines.

How do I move QuickBooks to the cloud?

To move QuickBooks to the cloud, you need to choose a QuickBooks cloud hosting provider and work with their migration process. At Summit Hosting, our process is designed to reduce work and stress for your team. To move QuickBooks to the cloud, you work with our technical team to determine the best way to set up your server and identify the files you need to transfer. We’ll do all the heavy lifting, setting up your server and migrating your files in less than 48 hours.

How much does it cost to host QuickBooks?

It typically costs between $30 and $75 per month to host QuickBooks. Lower cost QuickBooks hosting services typically use shared servers, while higher prices come with additional features, such as 2-Factor Authentication. At Summit Hosting, our QuickBooks cloud hosting service starts at just $55 per month, including dedicated servers and additional security options.

Will hosted QuickBooks work like my QuickBooks Desktop?

Yes, it will! QuickBooks in the cloud works exactly like the traditional QuickBooks Desktop version, so you don’t have to worry about learning a new software or developing a new workflow. Summit’s QuickBooks hosting service works on Macs, PCs and any other device you may use. As long as you’re online, you can access your data. If you’re using an IOS device, all you need to do is download the Microsoft Remote Desktop Application from the Apple App Store.
