Yah, but this is your day job, right?
Not anymore, well, define job. I'm semi-retired and rent a server(s) pre-installed with a control panel so it's virtually no work for me to host all of my personal domains.
Literally the only thing I have to do is make sure the automatic updates are keeping the OS and control panel updated, that's it.
For the number of domains I have it's actually cheaper to have my own personal servers.
I used to host elsewhere, several elsewhere's for that matter, but I got annoyed because other clients on the servers were always causing problems, email constantly had issues, and when nothing else was going wrong the host would make changes that broke stuff. It was a nightmare.
It also makes it much easier to do bot blocking when you deploy server-wide solutions vs. going account to account.
