    IMO anyone who requires this tutorial is not ready for unmanaged hosting.

    It is for those who are willing to learn.
    Of course there will be a learning curve.

      Why must everyone "learn" how to manage servers?

      - Do you "learn" to change your own oi?
      - Do you slaughter your own chicken?
      - Do you milk your own cow?

      Focus on what matters (the site), not the other stuff to even make it work. If I had to spend all day milking cows, killing chickens, changing oil, managing servers, etc, I'd never get anything done.

      Managing a VPS is a PITA, so avoid it for as long as you can. When the site grows so much that it's required, then worry about the extra work involved. At that point, it would probably be worth it. Or, better yet, use managed hosting or hire a server admin. So you can still focus on the site, not what makes it work.

        Not everyone need to learn this.
        However, a basic skill in anything will help. Especially if you are going to outsource it. You will get a better sense whether your server admin / virtual assistant / _____ (fill here) did a good job or not.

    I love DigitalOcean, use them for some personal project stuff. Not sure I would host my production money sites on there though.
