What exactly happens when you switch to a private server? I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to servers, and I don't want to have to deal with all the problems that come with it. Do I have to fix all the problems?

By private sever, do you mean Virtual Private Server or something else? See this link for the commonly used terms - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_hosting_service#Types_of_hosting

If so, a VPS can range, depending on what the hosting company offers, from a preinstalled package with just a control panel for your access where the hosting company provides support, all the way to a raw Virtual server that you have root access to it where you are responsible for installing and maintaining all the software.
