What is CloudLinux?

CloudLinux, a Linux-based operating system, guarantees maximum security and stability for shared hosting.

How does it work?

How does it work?

CloudLinux applies LVE (LightWeight Virtual Environment) to virtualise user accounts resulting in separate individual accounts with dedicated resources like CPU, bandwidth, memory, and much more.

How does it help?

System admins help divide and allot specific resources to each account thus preventing any single account from using excessive resources and hampering other accounts from performing optimally.

How does it work? (Traditional Setup vs CloudLinux Setup)

The traditional shared hosting environment offers common resources for all the accounts hosted on the same physical server without any division or allocation of resources to individual accounts.
 
Unfortunately, this results in all of the accounts being affected by the actions of a single one. So if any account contracts a virus or uses a significant amount of resources, the other accounts will have to suffer the consequences as well.
 
CloudLinux is the perfect way to keep such problems at bay. Its virtual separation technology ensures that the activity of one account does not affect others sharing the same physical server. The LVE (LightWeight Virtual Environment) prioritises safety by implementing advanced security measures while making sure there is balanced usage of resources between all accounts. LVE also resolves issues dealing with memory usage to help optimise your website and boost performance. CloudLinux provides immense scalability to accommodate the evergrowing needs of your clients’ websites.

Benefits of CloudLinux

Security

Security

Does the safety of your clients’ data and website keep you up at night? Get rid of all of your worries with CloudLinux’s LVE (Lightweight Virtualised Environment) which ensures protection from malicious attackers and keeps your sensitive data well protected. Enjoy maximum stability and security with the security patches CloudLinux releases regularly.

Performance

Performance

One of the biggest pitfalls of shared hosting is its resources not being monitored or divided among multiple accounts which causes problems. CloudLinux helps resolve this by tracking resource consumption and boosting performance with the Isapi PHP handler module designed to be lightweight and swift. You also receive upgrade suggestions when necessary.

Scalability

Why choose CloudLinux?

Why choose CloudLinux?

CloudLinux boosts performance and offers advanced security for shared hosting and development servers including cloud servers, dedicated servers, and VPS.
 
Its virtual environment ensures all the accounts are segregated from one another to boost security while also virtualising its data. It stops individual accounts from monopolising resources by keeping an eye on them and managing them accordingly. It recognises accounts that use a massive amount of resources and throttles them to ensure the uniform performance of all the accounts hosted on the server, and minimum downtime.

Cloud Linux FAQ's

What is Cloud Linux?

A single account on a shared hosting server monopolising a lot of resources can result in other accounts experiencing downtime which can have detrimental effects. CloudLinux avoids this from happening by dividing all the shared hosting accounts virtually and keeping a tab on the resources each account uses.
