Whether you need an unmanaged or a managed solution will primarily depend on your situation. Unmanaged cloud servers are exactly as the name suggests, an entirely unmanaged solution on which you’ll need to manage all aspects of your server your self – from initial setup to on going maintenance. If you’re not experienced in server management, a managed solution might be better for you.
Are your Unmanaged Solutions Scalable
Yes, all of our cloud servers across our entire range are highly scalable, on the fly. Given they’re cloud hosted, we don’t need to physically add or swap out hardware to increase the capacity of your virtual private server. Just let us know what you need as and when you need it.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the major advantages of an unmanaged solution?
For most it comes down to the price. If the server is unsupported by us we can afford to offer a solution much cheaper than our managed offerings. Some also like the full control it gives in terms of configuration, optimisation and core software.
Can I run a high traffic website on these servers or do I need a managed solution?
Yes you can use our cloud servers for single websites or many. Keep in mind what will be required of you with regards to operating your server though as unmanaged servers take a fair bit of setup and maintenance.
I want to migrate my reseller plan to an unmanaged VPS - is that possible?
Whilst we can migrate your reseller plan to an unmanaged VPS you must understand what will be required of you in setting up and maintaining your cloud server. If you’re not sure what you’re doing you’ll probably be better off using one of our managed solutions.
Can I scale up my VPS if required?
Yes, all of our VPS hosting plans are fully scalable. Both on our unmanaged and managed offerings. If you’d like to upgrade your current setup just drop us a message.
What are your billing requirements?
There is no minimum contract and you can opt to pay either monthly or annually. There are discounts if you pay annually.
Made the switch!
"I switched to an unmanaged server after a few years on the managed solution. Part of my reasoning was financial admittedly but I also wanted to learn more about server management and system administration. The service HostPresto provides on this front is nothing short of fantastic. There are packages to suit everyone and support is offered at every level."
A perfect solution!
"If you’re looking for a solution that will enable you to do what you like when you like then this is probably for you. An unmanaged solution is not for the feint-hearted so only take one on if you know what you’re doing. I’ve been running mine for 6 months now but they do take a bit of getting used to."
A smooth operation!
"HostPresto is one of the best companies in the UK for fully managed and unmanaged solutions as well as all the other bits and bobs they offer. This is my third server deployment via HostPresto and everything has always gone smoothly. The chaps also seem quite knowledgeable with regards to server admin which seems to be a rarity these days – even for hosters!"
