Why CloudLinux with my Server?

Hosting providers choose CloudLinux to get unprecedented levels of stability and control over server resources especially when hosting multiple websites. CloudLinux is:

  • Based on RedHat EL 5.x and interchangeable with CentOS 5.x - which means no learning curve
  • Works with all major control panels including cPanel and Plesk
  • Compatible with major hosting technologies like Ksplice and R1Soft Backup
  • Transparent to both the administrator and end user and requires virtually no overhead

CloudLinux uses innovative Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology to improve density and stability of your hosting setup. In shared hosting, the most common reason for downtime* is a single website that can slow down or bring down all other sites on the server.

LVE creates isolation between websites, making sure that one website cannot affect another and prevents** each website from using more resources than allocated.

By containing and monitoring resource spikes, CloudLinux eliminates the need to leave server resources idle, giving you better site density and the ability to host twice as many accounts on a CloudLinux server than a comparable Linux server.

Only CloudLinux gives you the protection and visibility to see and control exact resource usage of each website with no additional management hassles. Your customers get the stability and uptime they need from you with a simple and easy to use operating system.

** With CloudLinux, if a website uses too many resources, only that site will slow down until it responds with “Server Busy” error. Once resource usage for the website gets back to acceptable levels, it will automatically start working again.

Why Excellent Serv's Hosting servers use CloudLinux?

Server stability is one of the most crucial elements of success when providing shared hosting. How do you prevent a single site from taking down or slowing down the whole server, which is a leading cause of downtime in the industry?

Excellent Serv Co. uses the latest virtualization technologies from CloudLinux to improve server stability and prevent downtime on our shared hosting servers.

Shared Hosting Challenge:

A typical shared server hosts huge numbers of accounts that all use the same server resources. If one website uses too many resources, it can slow down or shut down the server.  This is common for shared hosting servers and happens for like:

  • Traffic spikes – a mention on a popular forum can send thousands of visitors to a website in minutes and overwhelm the server causing downtime.
  • Inefficient coding – a single bug in one website’s code can use all CPU resources, no matter how powerful the server, and cause downtime.
  • Denial Of Service attacks – hackers invade an insecure website and hog the server resources.

Excellent Serv Co. Solution:

We eliminate these threats by using CloudLinux, an operating system specifically designed to address the weaknesses and risks associated with shared hosting.

CloudLinux uses innovative Lightweight Virtualization Environment (LVE) technology to create isolation between websites on a shared server. By containing each website, CloudLinux prevents each one from using more resources than allocated, making sure that one website cannot affect another.

CloudLinux gives you peace of mind that your website is protected from other sites on the same server.
