What is it?CloudLinux Logo

CloudLinux is a Linux operating system that ensures server speed and uptime. Trust hosting providers, like Stream101, that use CloudLinux to ensure the stability of your online business.

Benefits for Shared Hosting

Stream101 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. While Stream101 limits the number of accounts that are on a single server, we want to take an extra step to help ensure our service is the best around! If one website uses too many resources, it can slow down or shut down the server.  This is common for many shared hosting companies and happens for:

  • 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.

Our 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.

* 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.

Benefits for Reseller Hosting

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? *
