HostiFi Review

Published onSeptember 21, 2023

HostiFi is a third-party managed-hosting provider for UniFi Controller, mainly referred to as UniFi cloud controllers.

It's a done-for-you service to host and manage your UniFi controller. It’s an effective alternative for scaling your networks (especially for MSPs)

This article will review HostiFi’s services and introduce an alternative that might suit your needs better.

Let’s dive in!

HostiFi, one of the pioneers in UniFi cloud hosting services, is a great company that has earned recognition for its dedicated hosting service. It manages your UniFi network controllers in the cloud, providing instant deployment, updates, and daily backups.

However, HostiFi comes at a cost. It starts at $99 per month, and no free plan is available. $99 a month is incredible expensive if you are a small business looking for a credible hosting solution.


  • Easy setup and migration process
  • Customer support
  • Reliable solution


  • Expensive

UniHosted: A Better Alternative

UniHosted is a new UniFi controller hosting service that provides the same reliability and features as HostiFi but has additional benefits.

It’s a new player in town and doesn't have the same track record yet, but it offers a free solution to test the waters.

UniHosted was built because of the need for an affordable cloud hosting solution. Its pricing starts at $50 per month (one-third of HostiFi). In addition, UniHosted works on a “pay-as-you-go” model. You only pay for the devices that are active on the network.

It provides instant deployment, battle-tested updates, daily backups, and 24/7 monitoring.


  • Instant deployment
  • Easy migration
  • Automated updates and backups
  • Provides a scalable solution


  • Less track record

Final Thoughts

While HostiFi has made a name in the UniFi cloud hosting space, we built UniHosted to challenge them on better pricing, more customization, and automated setup.

If you are looking for a pocket-friendly, but scalable UniFi cloud controller solution, then feel free to give UniHosted a spin.

Additionally, I'm happy to walk you through personally. You can schedule a call with me (Founder of UniHosted) here.
