Do you have experience with for example AWS cloud services? The first company I worked at hosted PHP websites shared on the same machine.

If one website pulled 100% load all websites would slow down. And if only one is, for example, sending e-mails to a lot of customers that one website could blacklist a whole lot of e-mail addresses based on IP address.

Those where rough times I can tell you 😅

Yes, I have experience using aws. When I use single server for multiple services I use docker. Usually i always use docker. But it's to use single VM for multiple services.
