An Unmanaged VPS is a server that provides you with an bare environment. Giving you the Building blocks that allows you to create whatever application you desire on it. It's meant for those who are more tech-savvy and like to handle the technical aspects of their own server. As a result, it's much more inexpensive in comparison to its managed counterpart.

Yes! This is especially true if you are or have your own development team. Unmanaged servers benefit SAAS Providers, systems administrators and much more. Unmanaged servers allow you to setup your own environment per any development and/or production platform specifications.

It is possible to change to a managed VPS, however, it does require purchasing a new VPS that is managed and allowing our migrations team to evaluate and determine the process that will be required to migrate your unmanaged VPS.
