However, Drupal site is rather large and quite complex, so I needed a Linux VPS. I needed a VPS so that I could set up specific FTP accounts, specific permissions, private sections, secure sections, etc. I could list at least 10 more reasons why...
Unfortunately, when asking for root or even admin access, I was told "You already uploaded files with FTP protocol... You don't need admin access to server. It would just some mess without any gain." to which I asked why?
