How to install ArcGIS Server on my website

Hi, I know this is a broad question but I am hoping there is an answer for this.


My company uses Bluehost (Bluehost ) to host our website (which is the service that WordPress uses). I am not the most familiar with this service but from talking to someone at the Esri UC this past year, they coined it as a LAMP stack server (meaning it's Linux-based, Apache, MySQL, and PHP etc.). They suggested that it might not be best to install ArcGIS Server on this type of system for performance reasons.


HOWEVER, I would like to try this as I am running out of good work-around ideas on what to do with our server license and need to use it. So, my question is, how do I install ArcGIS Server on my Bluehost hosting server site?


From what I understand, I have unlimited storage. I can access all of my files through a file manager and can see them through a client like FileZilla or FTP. But, I cannot make this server act as a virtual directory in order for me to install anything. I have the executable file of ArcGIS Server (currently 10.4.1) on my website.


I have seen some talk of PuTTY and SSH services but it is not clear on how to just 'run' this exe file and have it installed on my server. Can anyone give me suggestions on this?
