I am in the market for a dedicated server. The site that it will run is a moderately database-intensive PHP site. I am currently split over whether to buy it from ThePlanet or HostGator, which is a ThePlanet reseller. With ThePlanet, I get complete control over the server, which is both comforting and frightening, as I am in no way a Linux guru. However, with HostGator they manage the server for me. I like this idea because it takes the trouble of patching and other maintence off my back. However, I am worried if something goes wrong I will have less ability to fix it. So, anyone have any suggestions?
