When you have an un-managed hosting servers the company doesn’t help you out with the security, you will have to monitor and protect your site on your own form the hackers who are always waiting to delete and destroy precious information. For making your site hacker-proof you need to have a lot of money, time and energy.
- Usability: Using kind of VPS or Dedicated hosting site can be quite hectic. The only thing that the host focuses on is the availability of the web server.

You have to find the best one and have to install it on your own.
So these are of the cons that come with such servers and we don’t recommend with it if you are not aware about management and technical skills to manage servers.
