VelociHOST brings CloudLinux 9 to Bare Metal Servers


CloudLinux 9 is the latest version of the CloudLinux operating system, which is designed specifically for web hosting providers. CloudLinux 9 is a powerful and reliable platform that offers enhanced security, stability, and performance, making it an ideal choice for web hosting providers who need a reliable and stable operating system.

Improved security

One of the key features of CloudLinux 9 is its advanced security capabilities. The operating system includes multiple security enhancements that protect against vulnerabilities and attacks, such as kernel-level security, secure boot, and improved SELinux policies. This means that web hosting providers can offer their customers a secure hosting environment that is resistant to hacking and malware.
Some of the key security features of CloudLinux 9 include:

  1. KernelCare: CloudLinux 9 includes KernelCare, a tool that automatically applies kernel security patches without the need for a system reboot. This helps to keep the system up-to-date with the latest security patches, reducing the risk of security breaches.
  2. CageFS: CageFS is a virtualized file system that provides a secure and isolated environment for each user on the system. This helps to prevent privilege escalation attacks and ensures that each user can only access their own files and data.
  3. Imunify360: Imunify360 is a comprehensive security suite that includes advanced firewall protection, malware detection and removal, and intrusion detection and protection. It helps to protect hosting providers and their clients from a wide range of threats, including brute-force attacks, malware infections, and other types of cyberattacks.
  4. ModSecurity: ModSecurity is a web application firewall that provides additional protection against web-based attacks, such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
  5. SELinux: SELinux is a mandatory access control mechanism that provides enhanced security by limiting the actions that users and applications can perform on the system. It helps to prevent privilege escalation attacks and other types of security breaches.
  6. LVE Manager: LVE Manager is a tool that allows hosting providers to allocate resources, such as CPU, memory, and disk space, to individual users and applications. This helps to prevent resource hogging and ensures that each user has access to the resources they need.
  7. User Manager: CloudLinux 9 includes an enhanced User Manager tool that allows hosting providers to manage user accounts and permissions more easily and securely.

In addition to its security features, CloudLinux 9 also offers improved stability and performance. The operating system is optimized for web hosting and includes features such as Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology, which provides a container-based virtualization solution that isolates each customer’s account, ensuring that one customer’s resource usage does not impact the performance of others.

Optimized software packages

CloudLinux 9 includes the latest versions of popular software packages such as PHP, MySQL, and Apache, optimized for hosting environments. This helps to ensure that the system is running efficiently and reliably, with minimal risk of issues or crashes.

Improved log management

Improved log management features are part of CloudLinux 9, making it easier to track and analyze system events. This can help to identify issues before they become critical and minimize downtime and disruption.

Support for the latest hardware

CloudLinux 9 also includes an enhanced kernel that supports the latest hardware and provides improved resource management. This means that web hosting providers can offer their customers faster and more reliable hosting services, with better utilization of resources and greater control over system performance.

Better error handling

Another benefit of CloudLinux 9 is the improved error handling mechanisms, making it easier to identify and resolve issues before they escalate. This helps to minimize downtime and ensure that the system is stable and reliable.

Another key benefit of CloudLinux 9 is its compatibility with a wide range of hosting control panels, including cPanel, Plesk, and DirectAdmin. This means that web hosting providers can easily integrate CloudLinux 9 into their existing hosting infrastructure, without the need for additional software or hardware.

CloudLinux 9 also includes several other features that make it an ideal choice for web hosting providers. These include support for multiple PHP versions, improved database management tools, and a streamlined update process that ensures that the operating system and associated software are always up-to-date and secure.
