Putting up a website is a process, and you need to make sure youve covered everything to get started. A good linux hosting covers the following below:
Control Panel this is what allows you to function as an administrator to your website. Its almost impossible to run the website without this one. Every Linux hosting package always comes with a control panel.
Email a unique email address for your website will help you cluster all your email related to the website (i.e. customer related, bills, etc.) apart from your other email accounts.
Bandwidth the more you have, the easier it is for traffic to come in.
