I just switched my sites over from shared hosting to what I thought was a step up ( dedicated ). One of my websites is built on Wordpress and already I am having problems with the folder permissions. I was told that only 770 would work on the wp-content folder. My email with them is a pain.
I have been building websites for a little under 3 years now and have used many different hosting providers depending on the client. <- And I'm tired of hosting companies ( mainly for my personal sites ).
However, I have very little server experience, BUT I am willing to learn.
So my Question: I pay 50 bucks a month for hosting and deal with too many problems. Would I be intelligent to buy my own server and go from there?
The way I see it: I would save in the long run ( big time ) and have my server sitting right next to me. I need to host only about three sites, with each needing their own email.
I have residential cable, but it's blazing fast. <- It could easily handle the traffic of my three sites.
Please let me know if I'm crazy :)
