LXC (Linux Containers) - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The Linux Containers project (LXC) is an open source container platform that provides a set of tools, templates, libraries, and language bindings. LXC has a simple command line interface that improves the user experience when starting containers.
LXC offers an operating-system level virtualization environment that is available to be installed on many Linux-based systems. Your Linux distribution may have it available through its package repository.

Find these hosting platform analogies confusing? Let’s explain in residential housing terms for easier clarifications.
(‘everyone shares the available resource together’)
In a Shared Hosting environment, all accounts must share the available resources with all the other accounts on the shared server. These also include CPU time, memory and disk space.
(‘you are allotted resources that are not shared by everyone’)
On a Virtual Private Server, you are allotted computing resources that are not shared by everyone. The overall CPU time and Memory (RAM) are shared across all accounts on the machine, but at the same time portions of those resources are always dedicated to each account. This allows for more computing power and flexibility than being on a shared platform.
(‘you are the only one allowed and have access to all resources available on the machine’)
With Dedicated Server, you are allowed and have full access to all computing resources available on the machine. No one else’s account resides on the machine and would not be capable of tapping into your resources.
VPS hosting is an affordable option when your business requirements outgrow the capacity of shared hosting.
In shared hosting, if your website becomes popular, you may need to upgrade to VPS Hosting for more CPU and Memory for your account. This will allow you to handle all the new traffic coming to your site.
As compared to shared hosting, VPS offers a number of advantages such as:
Customisations: Moving up to VPS gives you more ownership of your server. If you require software that is not available in Shared Hosting, upgrading to VPS hosting will allow you to install any software that you desire.
Two words: Cost & Maintenance
Running your own Cloud VPS is possible but it comes at a higher cost and is self-managed as compared to VPS. You will however require an IT system engineer to keep up with patching, regular hardware upgrades and a sizeable space in your office for your server maintenance and storage. Never cut corners/cost when setting up your dedicated server as you will probably end up with lower grade hardware with high risks of failure.
A VPS offers the perfect step between the constraints of a shared hosting plan and the commitment of a dedicated server. You will have a lot more flexibility, capacity and control – at an affordable price.
If your business requirements are expanding and you have outgrowth your web hosting or simply want more control, a VPS is the next best logical choice for your hosting needs. It gives you more freedom with root access, plus you can install an SSL certificate, as well as any type of software applications required, all without the hassle and responsibility of a physical dedicated server. As compared to a shared hosting server, you are reliant on the performance of the platform provided by the service provider. By choosing a VPS, you get to select a configuration that is best suited for your software applications, business requirements and ultimately, the freedom to configure your specification requirements when your business expands.
If you are a current shared hosting customer from ATCLOUD, our team can render the tech support and provide insights to share best practices for your migration. For detailed migration work(s), we will provide the migration service(s) based on a service charged fee. Otherwise, it is up to you to migrate your own data and applications from your existing service provider onto our VPS and reconfigure your DNS.
A VPS allows you to host sites (website, e-commerce, content, and media) and software applications (e.g. CRM, Adobe, WordPress and other software collaborative solutions) with ease. Unlike shared hosting, a VPS allows multiple applications to be isolated from one another within the same server. Even though the VPS shares the physical resources (infrastructure) with other users, its computing resources are dedicated to you.
