What is CloudLinux.
It is a hosting oriented Linux distributive based on CentOS which improves server stability, density, and security by isolating each tenant and giving them allocated server resources. Uses the LVE (Lightweight virtual environment) kernel technology that is similar to OpenVZ in some aspects or to other OS-based virtualization technologies. It
LVE and cPanel / WHM – CL has developed a plugin specifically for use on cPanel / WHM based systems. Installed through yum (CentOS package manager), the plugin allows you to view resource accurate up to the last second, and also allows you to edit default and individual LVE limits.
Improve the server stability by limiting the resources per user :
In shared hosting, the most common reason for server overloading or downtime is a single account slowing down other accounts on the server.
Using cPanel & WHM software with CloudLinux utilizes innovative Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology, improving the density and stability of your shared hosting environment for all tenants.
Advanced security for Servers
With unique CageFS technology, CloudLinux encapsulates each customer, preventing users from seeing each other and viewing sensitive information.
CloudLinux Prevents a large number of attacks, including most privilege escalation and information disclosure attacks.
Admin interface within WHM software to easily manage account usage
Within WHM, CloudLinux gives you and your clients the visibility and accessibility to see and control the exact resource usage of each website.
Monitoring and containing resource spikes, it eliminates the need to leave server resources idle, providing you with the ability to host twice as many accounts on your cPanel / WHM server.
Multiple PHP versions
Using CloudLinux together with cPanel & WHM software gives your customers with the flexibility to choose the PHP version that they need.
This includes versions 4.4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, and 5.5 as well as more than 50 PHP extensions and the ability to adjust php.ini settings.
The shared hosting environment is unlike any other and the CloudLinux kernel takes that into account.
It can protect against symlink attacks and trace exploits, while restricting the visibility of ProcFS to only what is necessary — making your cPanel & WHM servers more secure.
