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