New Linux OS for small businesses and individuals with just one hosting account


Register for Beta testing and get a chance to make a difference in product development.


Why did create a new Operating System?

Our starting point was clear. Based on research results, our clients overwhelmingly want the classic CloudLinux OS with VPS and VMs, which only a few users then utilize. One main request is a robust set of CloudLinux features on one server at affordable prices. Consequently, we found hundreds of VPSs with five or fewer websites hosted by a single client, many of which use VMs for staging and production. Some clients want a stable OS with technical support that is secure and not open-sourced.

CPU Performance

Last Modified date Jul 25, 2021

Global digitalization caused by the recent pandemic has accelerated the sales of IT infrastructure and services to provide 24/7 secure collaboration, Virtual Machines, and e-commerce tools to Work From Home (WFH) users. Many businesses who are looking to quickly scale IT capacity, start shifting from on-premises to public and hybrid clouds. Yet, concerns over data sovereignty and state regulations make IT decision-makers consider traditional VPS, VDS, and colocation over public cloud instances. It is a strong call for the hosting market to deliver clients local, low-latency data access and hardware at affordable price points.

Our recent research among CloudLinux OS users shows a steady split of opinions in terms of the most important metric to monitor — server performance VS per-user resource allocation. Some Web Hosting providers define a CPU as the most important resource for hosting providers, while others believe the performance secret is behind a wise account spreading across the servers. Here at CloudLinux, we would say that the thing is in the balance of both, considering that in all cases system administrators will take care of CPU, RAM, IO, and MySQL, and other database variables. A precise understanding of the CSP environment and proper demand forecasting can help web hosters reach higher server utilization rates by oversubscribing users without breaking SLAs while also multiplying the number of customers on each server without any stress.

What is DPDK, and What is it Used For?

What is DPDK, and What is it Used For?The Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) is an open-source software project with a vibrant community of development contributors. Because it is open-source and free, a large portion of the tech industry involved in microprocessor research and development are working to improve DPDK with each release update. This includes computer scientists and researchers from Intel, IBM, and Cisco, among other industry leaders. 

Introducing CloudLinux OS 8 with cPanel and Plesk Compatibility

CloudLinux 8 cPanel and PleskIn February 2020, we released CloudLinux OS 8 with the 4.18 Kernel. The rollout was a success as users experienced reliability and full update support via CloudLinux. Now, we are pleased to announce full compatibility with cPanel and Plesk control panel interfaces. While it showed great performance and strong workability on the DirectAdmin servers, the latest compatibility update adds much-needed GUI support, something web hosters will surely appreciate.

Best practices in Site Performance Maintenance on Shared Hosting

Common Website Performance Issues in Shared Hosting

Thousands of sites could be hosted on one physical server, and just one application could affect all other sites hosted on the server. Shared host providers must be diligent with monitoring and performance tuning on these servers to ensure that applications run smoothly and don’t have malware running on them (learn more about shared hosting security). With the right tools, shared hosting providers can improve site performance for customers while boosting overall revenue.

Faster Servers and Easier Shared Hosting Management

Our credo has always been to make system admin life easier. Today we've compiled two simple video guides that will help you to identify the performance bottlenecks on your servers and on your customers' websites. Check

PHP X-Ray for End-Users Released in Beta

PHP-Xray-endusers (1)-1

When your website performance fails, it’s usually an issue with the Content Management System (CMS) or a poorly optimized plugin, but how does a webmaster analyze the issue?

You could go through the code, disable plugins and even reinstall the CMS software, but these solutions could create downtime and root-cause analysis could still come up with nothing. Instead of tediously combing through web application code and plugins, CloudLinux PHP X-Ray lets you monitor and diagnose performance in CMS applications such as WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal without affecting uptime.
