  • No exactly as your answer but personally as being newbie, what I found for personal website hosters, like me, a control panel is better bet..

    Control Panel software itself comes with everything.. Mail / FTP / Apache / SQL.. I personally used zPanel (Now Sentora).. there are many free options.. You may check them out..
