Name.com, a domain name registrar and provider of shared hosting plans, has decided to partner with CloudLinux and start using the CloudLinux OS. The Denver, Colorado based web hosting provider expects to significantly improve load times, stability, and the overall customer experience of Name.com’s shared web hosting services.
The choice for CloudLinux OS is following some growing issues Name.com had with its existing shared web hosting environment.
Shared hosting servers are often plagued by individual users who monopolize server resources including RAM, CPU, and disc I/O. This problem, referred to as the “bad neighbor” effect, results in decreased performance for every account on the server. When Name.com identified this as a growing issue in its shared hosting environment, the company turned to CloudLinux.
About CloudLinux OS
“When problems occur with an OS, maintaining support and service quality is difficult,” says Igor Seletskiy, Founder and CEO at CloudLinux. “By forging strong partnerships, we can improve the quality of shared web hosting and help our customers deliver the standard of service that customers demand. At CloudLinux, our customer support team has helped Name.com to eliminate its issues.”
CloudLinux was founded in 2009 to address the distinctive needs of web hosting providers. The company’s headquarters are in Princeton, New Jersey, whereas its development team is based in Donetsk, Ukraine. CloudLinux’ flagship OS is optimized to help web hosting providers deliver more stable shared web hosting services, with account isolation and resource allocation on an OS level.
