How easy is for a beginner to manage a server?
Hi guys, I have been considering for a while to drop my shared hosting at Media Temple and move my websites here. However, as far as I could see, it appears I will have to possess a lot more sysadmin skills than I do at this moment. So my complex question is: as a total newbie in this field, with close to none linux experience, how difficult will it be to maintain my server, keep it secure and running at top performance? Will I have to do all this myself? Is there an option where the guys at Digital Ocean can do these things for me? I would prefer spending my time working on my projects rather than start learning the fine points of system administration. Thanks in advance for your help!
