    When purchasing a VPS or Dedicated Server do you go for the Managed or Un-managed VPS or Dedicated Server?

    Personally, I always pick managed as I find it is worth it. I`d rather spend a few extra dollars a month to have a fully managed service rather then have cheap un-managed hosting and when I need help not be able to ask due to it being un-managed hosting.

    When purchasing VPS hosting I expect it to be managed, as I really don't have the skills to manage it myself. I've never had a dedicated server and feel that I would need to significantly improve my server management knowledge before getting an unmanaged one.

    I agree with Fergal, managed hosting solution is better.

    If you familiar with system administration - you don't need managed :)
