I run multiple different servers:  apache (multiple sites on the same instance 
of apache), IMAP, SMTP, BIND, and a misc.   I could run all these on the same 
virtual machine, but I like the idea of having them separate so I can rebuild/
revise any one of them without impacting the others.   I realize that this 
creates a lot of additional overhead on the overall server, but my load has 
been so low, this works even for a server with minimal RAM.

Also, I don't know anything about "containers", so it would make migration 
from my existing server to the hosted server a lot simpler if I can simply 
rebuild each individual VM one by one on the new hosted server.
