How Cloud Linux help shared hosting environment ?

Shared hosting server environment is cheapest than the dedicated hosting.  As the name itself suggest that it is used for sharing the resources amongst all connected with that single server. It allows multiple accounts to be hosted on single server. Many of the websites nowadays are in verge of increasing too many resources just to attract the visitors, but the designers and developers should know that increase in resources can also slow down their server. Hence again the server problems will be faced by the customers only. It will not only affect the single customer but the whole team working upon it. Not only in the case of the shared hosting but also the traditional hosting doesn’t work as it is not possible to set the limit for RAM and CPU for every single account. Hence it will only give the unsatisfactory results to the customers and indirectly loss to business as well. Thus it is very important to find a solution so that the customers should be happy.

As now it is known that when the server issues are faced, it directly causes the hosting environment, it can also happened in Cloud Linux environment when the website account reaches the limit of set resources resulting in slowing down the sites. Hence it will again degrade the performance and will stop working unless and until the issues are resolved. Thus, every problem has the solution for it, thus this issue can also be resolved if the limits of resources are controlled and stored in container or some place just for security purpose.
