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…
