    Hello there!

    I am on a shared hosting since 2010, I will upgrade my account in 2 months to VPS, so I guess at least I should start learning it now, the hosting company says, they fully managed it but I find no reasons to not learn myself, in all cases, that's very good to a webmaster who looking for a success,

    I just want you to point me where to start learning, any recommended books ? tutorials ? shall I start learning admistrate linux enviremoen or windows ?

    Please, your help is very appreciated, thank you guys!


    BTW, anyone tries LVPShosting.com ?

    Learn linux VPS. I like CentOS. But there's also Fedora and some people use Ubuntu server too. Learning server is just like learning the desktop version. If you know the linux commands, you're 50% ready. The rest is just learning about networking, security and such but they won't be hard. It's easy. They just take time. Just use Google if you don't know how to do something and try to memorize the steps. Your knowledge will add on.

    Thanks LEVAC109 :)

    That means linux is similar to normal windows we use on our PCs?

    I have already googled it but many results pop up so I come here to ask for a hand pointing me where exactly should I begin the journey

    Please advise!

    Its not easy,if it was, it wouldn't take time.its nothing like windows ..Centos and Fedora are the same with regard to subtle nuances, they are both based on the redhat kernel....I haven't tried that host but just make sure bandwidth and RAM are sufficient for the application your running....For learning purposes I suggest using CBT's.

    http://www.webhostgear.com/hosting-articles.html it solved most of my problems when I was learning server management.

    Also, what you can do now is just get a low end VPS, read some tutorials online (Google them) and try playing with the VPS.
