I am doing website management for a company that is growing quickly. They prefer wordpress and a divi theme for all the websites. They will be adding a lot more websites with a lot of products over the next year, and because we've had problems with hosting companies, they are thinking of hosting the websites themselves.

I know that I have zero server knowledge or experience, and they are asking my opinion. I thought maybe a company like https://www.serversurgeon.com/index.php could help.

Any thoughts?  How difficult would this be? Who would he need to hire to manage the servers?   What programs would need to be on them to allow the databases and other necessities for wordpress?  Does it need to be Apache? Could it be Linus servers?  And other questions I'm sure you'll anticipate and answer. Thanks.
