Well, I hope I know what I'm getting myself into, but I just purchased a starter DS (BArton 3000 w/ 1GB RAM and 36Gig SCSI) from Layered Technologies, so Iwill be moving from a VPS in the near future. I am planinng to host some of my forum member web sites on my server to help defray the cost (maybe make a little $ ?).
A yway, I think I'm going to give PlatinumServerManagement a try with setting things up and manageing things - at least for a while until I learn my way around (which may take a long time).
Has anyone else recently moved from a VPS to a DS and what can I expect? This is a giant step for little ol' me.
VPS and DS are about the same in terms of responsbility, and with PlatinumServerManagement you should be fine. Be sure to do backups though...bqbackup.com and bytefortress.net come to mind for rsync accounts.
