What are the benefits of CloudLinux?

There are numerous advantages and benefits of CloudLinux OS and we will discuss it in this article. 

What is CloudLinux? 

CloudLinux is an operating system specially designed for shared hosting providers. It has functions that improve data security, stability, and density by separating all the users using shared hosting resources into the lightweight virtualized environment (LVE).

There are several benefits of CloudLinux which include the following.  

  1. Stability 
  2. Security 
  3. Isolation
  4. Ease of deployment
  5. Compatibility


Cloudlinux prevents fluctuations in resource usage and ensures that servers are stable in all conditions. It reduces the resources usage of a single user and enhances the server stability. Cloudlinux will restrict the single user from not using the entire server resource by using LVE kernel level module and accomplish the control of RAM and CPU.


Cloudlinux releases the security patches at the regular intervals to protect the websites hosted on it. Lightweight virtualized environment (LVE) protects your websites from malware and hackers from accessing vulnerable files.


On other servers operating systems when one or more accounts are compromised the whole server goes down and it endangers all the accounts hosted on the server.

But CloudLinux's lightweight virtualized environment (LVE) isolates each user on the server so it doesn't affect the entire server but the single account only. 

Increase Server Efficiency

Cloudlinux allows us to limit resource usage per user. When you create the numbers of users on your server, it will impact the server resources. Since you set the limitation on resources to be used by each account, it will increase server efficiency. 

High-Compatibility with cPanel

This is one of the key advantages that CloudLinux brings with compatibility with other interfaces like cPanel. cPanel provides GUI to work with your linux OS and most of the web hosts provide it to their clients. CloudLinux is also compatible with cPanel, DirectAdmin, and Plesk control panels as well as CentOS and RHEL.
