Which type of hosting is better to have to be able to install, manage, customize, tune and troubleshoot Q2A ?
Shared hosting ?
Unmanaged VPS ?
Managed VPS ?
( something else ? )
Of course shared hosting is more cheap, but I'm not sure if I'll be able/free to do all the needed steps for a correct setup.
Eg: I need to install the GD library, but I do not have root access. And so on....
I'd like very much to have a managed VPS, but it's too expensive (or at least i've not found any cheap one)
Also an unmanaged VPS would be ok, but I cannot evaluate how much additional work I'll have to do (eg: do I need to setup my firewall ? I'd like to avoid it ...) and how many additional problems I will have (eg : tfor sending emails from q2a, will I have an smtp service or do I have to install one by myself ? I'd prefer to avoid....)
What type of hosting/compromise do you think is better to have ?
