    Managed as needed.

    I'm thinking of getting a cheap VPS without control panel. S/he will configure the OS, firewall, ftp etc... I need recommendation for a VPS admin but I do not want to pay monthly only if needed.

    Also, if I choose this option how frequent do you advise that I will ask him/her to check if update / patches is needed? Is monthly maintenance really needed? How much is your estimated budget for this type of service?
    Ask for Server IP & Nameservers IP to check if your reseller provider truly provides 100% white-label.

    I don't have a budget right now and the website is really small (less than 200MB)

    You would probably end up paying more for a per job system admin than for a managed VPS. System Admin charges are usually not very cheap.

    I'm thinking that the initial setup is the expensive part but I'm hoping to save on the succeeding updates especially if this is not needed.

    getting a vps without a control panel to serv you webpages is not a good idea its only $5-10 more for the panel and it will save you hours and hours of work. You could find an odd job on craigslist once a month to pay it if you didnt have the cash.

    I have seen people try and get an unmanaged vps and it never works out everyone always needs the control panel.

    The only time I would suggest getting an unmanaged vps is if you

    1. a running a non apache program
    2. using it for development out side of basic control panels.
