The way I see it, it a waste of money to pay for hosting if you don't take advantage of the the control panel application. If it were up to me, I would hire a skilled person to take advantage of all possibilities of the server and the applications being used.
Hire someone to do what you want, learn from that person, take LOTS of notes! The next server you install can earn your money back if someone else hires you to do it.
I would have a chat with Till or Falko about this arrangment.
