Dedicated server management
Posted on 2004-09-12
Hi, I am about to purchase a dedicated server. I basically use it for my own site, which runs a php login and logout thingy, and I host gigs of video files over ftp. The thing is, I am having a personality split of whether I should get myself a managed server or un-managed server. I am a total newbie to dedicated thing. I could get the managed one for 110/m; unmanaged one for 84/m. So, advice pls~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I mean, is there a need do you think for managed service? I would have a Direct Admin for both plan, so is it not enough still just to have the panel? Is it really that complicated to manage a server myself? What I am planning now is to get 84/m and learn things from using it, but I start to get hesitated when people told me I would get nuts when things go wrong, and security management.
