I need to get away from my current cloud hosts who are, to put it mildly, abysmal. I have been looking at signing up with a company although today I found anohter company offering what looks to be a good package at a very cheap price.
The thing is, the latter would not have cpanel and I dont know the first thing about running my own server. How easy is it ? How much would it cost to buy a cpanel or plesk licence and how easy is it for me to put it on there.
Cheers in advance

Not easy. If you're a cpanel kind of person, find someone that has cpanel.
Running your own server has it's advantages, but there's a huge learning curve and many disadvantages. It's not something you should do just to save a couple of bucks - You'll be unhappy the first time you need to figure out how to add a site to apache. Heck, you'll be unhappy the first time you try to figure out how to install cpanel.
