Managed server or unmanaged?

There are many guys who ask this question and the answer is not that easy. If you have a real understanding of how Linux or FreeBSD works, you can sure use your skills and apply for unmanaged server. By using unmanaged server you save some bucks and have full control over the server.

But not many know how to properly configure and run server platforms, thus, managed dedicated servers are better choice. However, it will cost you much more – there are some management companies that offer service from $30 and up to $500 per month. Starting from standard OS patching and upgrades, and ending with Apache recompilation and adding modules and tunning the platform for better reliability.
