CloudLinux is the operating system used on the servers for shared hosting, reseller hosting, and WordPress hosting. There are a number of benefits to choosing a web hosting provider that uses CloudLinux, including enjoying a more stabilized, secure hosting environment and having resources dedicated to your account, which cannot be used by others on the server.
Another major benefit are the additional performance measures and hosting customization that exist in a CloudLinux Hosting environment. Below are a few of the major security features and how they help protect your website.
OptimumCache is a unique caching system that maximizes server speed by decreasing duplicate file requests. By storing a single copy of these files with in-memory caching, the system maximizes disk IO and memory potential and significantly improves the read speed of the most commonly accessed files. What this means is, if your website uses WordPress, Joomla, Magento, or other popular software, you can expect a boost in website performance, specifically page speed (by serving pages from the in-memory cache).
Mod_lsapi (LiteSpeed Server Application Program Interface)
Mod_lsapi is the fastest and most reliable way to serve PHP pages. It has a low memory footprint and understands PHP directives from .htaccess files. Using LSAPI (LiteSpeed Server Application Programming Interface), we have seen higher performance than Apache with mod_php, easier installation than php-fpm and easier integration with any control panel. LSAPI means faster and more stable dynamic web pages.
MySQL Governor monitors MySQL usage and throttles resources to maintain performance across servers without instantly disconnecting users. This balance prevents server overloads and improves overall stability and performance for all users, eliminating the harmful resource drain caused by long database queries.
