I would suggest you move somewhere that is semi-managed. That way they can keep up on the patches and other things that might need attention. Then hire someone for big tasks - such as securing the server. After that you can pretty much do the auto updates and not have to worry about much.
Originally posted by Testy If you have no knowledge you will need either a managed server, or a server admin.
A server admin will cost atleast $100+/mont extra to hire one or a managed server will cost around $200-$500 depending on specs and management level.
You can get good admins for 50-75

Since you are using 10GB disk space now, I would suggest you:
1. Share a server with another person
2. Get yourself a dedicated server
From what I know, a 10GB diskspace VPS + WHM/cPanel is really costy and it is only a little bit cheaper than a dedicated server.
If I were you, I will look go for a P4 server. Nowadays, you can get good P4 servers easily between US$100-200/month. You can try managing the server on your own since you have cPanel on the server. Do some research in cPanel and I'm sure you will be able to catch up fast.
Hope that helps.
