We offer managed VPS hosting at Farbyte as an add-on option during the purchase of any of our VPS servers.

Our managed VPS clients can rest easy, assured that their VPS is being cared for and protected by our highly qualified and experienced support staff.

- High level server hardening (worth £30)
- 30 minutes hands on admin per month * (worth £40 / month!)

Our managed VPS service allows you to stop worrying about running the server and concentrate on the services you are providing instead.
All this for just £19.99 / month!
30 Minutes Monthly Administration
We provide 30 minutes of hands on administration at your request each month*.
This can include installing and configuring software applications, running a specific task, etc. You just tell us what you need doing on the server and our trained technicians will do the rest, informing you when the job is complete.
Simply submit your requests via our support ticket system so we can perform a skills and time evalution prior to commencing work.
Our VPS come with some of the highest specifications available in the UK today. In addition, all our servers are located in Manchester, UK.
We employ the highest grades of enterprise server and network equipment, along with the highest performance standards available anywhere.
Please see our main VPS page for more details.
As part of our managed VPS hosting option, we ensure that all VPS Operating System (OS) and installed applications are updated on a regular basis.
This helps ensure that your VPS runs smoothly and increases security.
A server hardening process is performed by our trained staff, making it much more difficult for hackers (crackers) to break into your VPS.
Further details of our server hardening service can be found here.
VPS security is not something to be taken lightly, so for each of our managed VPS, we install and configure a software based firewall, offering another layer of defence against attack.
If you already have a website located elsewhere on a supported control panel**, we will perform a full site migration to your new Farbyte managed VPS.
* Must be consumed within the calendar month (i.e. no rollover of admin time). ** WHM/cPanel and Kloxo. Please get in touch before ordering if you require control panel migration.
