Personally, I've never used a dedicated server so far, so I have no idea how to manage one. Is it as difficult as some people say? Can it be easily learned?

I don't know how to manage a dedicated server since it requires a lot of effort and you need to be mechanically strong in every single aspect or when resources or load gets above a certain level, it'd be impossible to fix them.

As long as you have the basic skills like securing the operating system and are able to troubleshoot problems then it really isn't that hard. There are a lot of tutorials and videos online that you can learn a lot from. So knowledge of Google and YouTube is a must. Also, it helps if you don't have a problem with working on the hardware itself, like install drivers and partitioning drives.

I am raising my hand for I am at a loss on what you are talking about "dedicate server". I have known some website servers like Apache and Nginx. Are they dedicated server? Who can give a clear or a quick definition of a "dedicated server". Does it has much to do with efficient service or whatever?

Managing a dedicated server seems like it would be kind of like managing an Apache server at home except on a larger scale. I think that with a dedicated server, you usually get remote access as if you were using the machine from home.
