    Have you prior experience with servers? Unmanaged or Managed? Control Panel?

    Yes i have, mostly VPS, some time ago i had dedicated. Linux is prefered also. By unmanaged and managed you mean what? So i understand you correctly.
    Often without control panel. But some cpanel

    That should be doable with a quad core. If you need 250GB storage then you should be looking at a disk of size 300GB at least. RAID-1 would be a nice addition to avoid disk related disruptions.

    He's asking whether you need server management with your server. Management usually costs extra depending on the level of management (managed vs fully managed). For example, if you're skilled at managing and maintaining your server you don't need server management.

    $200 is reasonable. In Europe, OVH has some cheap configurations but I'm not sure about the quality of service as I don't have direct experience with them. US options are plenty but it depends on whether you want the server managed or not. Keep us posted on your decision!
