System admin and server question
I'm not a programmer but my programmer who built my database recommeded D.O.. I have two questions:
Do I "need" a system administrator? My programmer installed the SSL certificate and D.O. has system admins making sure their servers are secure... so, do I need the additional expense of having my server monitored by a system admin? What would they actually be doing? I'm very confused with this part.
Can I run my database on D.O. or is this only for programmers to house while they are building it and then needs to be transferred to a server like rackspace or aws? I do plan on opening my database up to users and would love nothing else than to see 1,000's of users. Should I be using D.O. only for my programmer and have the live site on AWS or like server?
Thanks so much for your help!
