Shared web hosting OS developer, CloudLinux, and control panel for web hosting providers, cPanel, have announced this month the 5th anniversary of their partnership. As of today, about 24,000 CloudLinux OS servers are running cPanel, and this number has doubled since 2014. cPanel would be the most used control panel for servers running CloudLinux OS.
On January 18th, 2011 CloudLinux and cPanel forged a long-standing partnership that brought “stability, security and profitability” features of CloudLinux OS to the cPanel customers and partners.
Since the inception of its partnership, the CloudLinux technical team has worked closely with the cPanel team on delivering tight integration and features based on customer needs. Using cPanel with CloudLinux OS would provide web hosting companies and data centers with stability by avoiding resource spikes caused by an individual tenant. CloudLinux OS limits the resources any single tenant can consume. This would improve server density significantly, causing a more stable and profitable environment.
Within the admin interface of cPanel & WHM, CloudLinux OS gives hosting companies and their customers the visibility to all resource usage and accessibility to control the exact resource allocation. A unified licensing system and integrated direct support is available to customers who use cPanel with CloudLinux OS.
Web Hosting Providers
“The success of the CloudLinux partnership stems from the underlying goal of providing software that solves real-world problems,” said Aaron Phillips, Chief Business Officer, cPanel. “CloudLinux with cPanel & WHM has enjoyed five years of joint efforts that have helped hosting providers improve stability, increase profitability, and provide web hosting customers a better hosting experience.”
The partnership spans beyond technical integration. CloudLinux team also joins cPanel at cP1Con, their new, single-day events taking place globally in 2016, as well as the annual cPanel Conference.
“cPanel’s prominent position in Linux-based web hosting space has made distribution of CloudLinux OS much simpler,” said Igor Seletskiy, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CloudLinux. “And full integration into their interface makes it easy to use for customers.”
