VPS: It's Awesome, and It Might Kill Me

So, I made the leap from shared hosting to a virtual private server.  Why?  A few reasons:

  1. You'll never get great performance from shared hosting
  2. I've gained confidence in my own ability to devops
  3. I'm trying to improve my skill set
  4. It's actually cheaper; $7/mo for Hostgator shared hosting vs. $5/mo for Digital Ocean
  5. It's fun!  (I need to get out more.)

My first reaction?
