CloudLinux is a Linux based operating system that creates a set of modified kernels to the operating system. It helps to manage resource limits and also account protection. Here’s the headlines:
- Normal shared hosting environments are an eco-system of files which are all interconnected back to the root of the server. CloudLinux provides the ability to ‘cage’ each user account. This contains any nasties in that cage and doesn’t allow any issues such as malware to infect other accounts.
