I'm not new to web development, but I have always used shared hosting to suit my needs. However, I see some people choose to serve their websites from their own servers.

In considering moving to administrating my own web server, what are the top issues that I should consider to determine whether it is a worthwhile endeavor for me to pursue?

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I think the question is: What is the difference between shared hosting and dedicated server... From this point of view I don't think it is too broad. – Raffael Luthiger Jul 25 '13 at 16:15
