Web Host Adds CloudLinux to Dedicated Hosting Servers – 01/17/2013

WiredTree (http://www.wiredtree.com), a professional provider of managed virtual private servers (VPS hosting), dedicated hosting servers, and hybrid servers, announced today the addition of CloudLinux as a choice of operating system (OS). CloudLinux is an innovative OS developed with the requirements of shared web hosting providers in mind and can help reduce churn and improve server stability.

On a server used to host shared hosting accounts, hardware power is usually assigned dynamically. If one account requires the use of bandwidth, RAM, CPU, and disk in-out, the operating system will make it available. However, if one account monopolizes the hardware resources, other users will be left waiting in line for the power their website needs in order to run. As a result, shared hosting plans perform badly or, worse, go offline completely. To combat this, CloudLinux uses Lightweight Virtual Environments (LVEs), containers that keep each individual shared hosting account isolated with a fixed allocation of hardware power. Regardless of how other users behave, customers can be certain of consistent performance. By adding CloudLinux to its range of operating systems, WiredTree allows customers to run shared hosting services with certainty that they can deliver exceptional performance to end-users.

“The addition of CloudLinux has been a long process, and we are happy to finally make it available to our customers,” says Cogswell. “As of today, all managed dedicated hosting server customers can choose CloudLinux when they place their orders, and we have plans to implement the OS on managed VPS hosting and hybrid servers as soon as it is compatible with Parallels Virtuozzo, which is our chosen virtualization platform.”
