If you are a programmer, chances are you don't need someone to manage the server unless it is very large. Basic server management is easy, just have a few books on the subject at hand.

What are your needs?

Sounds like the difference between one bill or two..

However if you are looking for a managed server OR a server admin send us an email and we can give you a quote for either.

If you are not an expert in managing your own servers, I would like to say that fully managed dedicated server solution will be a perfect choice. If you are also looking for reliable place to order dedicated server plans at, I can recommend you to compare as much as possible web hosting offers and then make your final decision.
You can have a look at inmotionhosting.com, *************.com and glowhost.com
Many webmasters appreciate them, so I decided to recommend them.

I'd advise you to start unmanaged dedicated servers which are cheaper and buy support in case of necessity.
You know there companies (*************) which provide that and think that's very convenient.

Management can be a some what deceiving term in the hosting world. Many hosts that offer a managed server mean they might login once a month and run a yum update or windows update, anything over and above that will cost you extra. In most cases an unmanaged server is all you need. Just make sure the host you choose can provide basic support for issues. You might also want to get a server with a control panel such as Cpanel to make basic administration simpler.
