Add-ons available for your Cloud Hosting package
As we approach our third year anniversary of providing managed cloud servers we would like to inform clients of a number of add-ons available for your cloud hosting service that you may not be aware of…
Advanced cPanel Backups
This is a third party plugin for more advanced backups on a cPanel server.
Currently back ups are stored daily (< 24 hours old), weekly (1-7 days old) and monthly (1-30 days old).
Advanced cPanel Backups on cloud hosting allows us to take a snapshot every day and allow restores from any one of the last 30 daily archives. Along with full accounts, restorations can be made of individual files/directories, email accounts, DNS zones, databases and SSL certificates. While we can do this on request, the process can also be done by end users from our cPanel control panel at any time of day or night without needing to contact us.
A snapshot feature is also included which allows you to take a back up prior to undertaking any work on an account. If something were to go wrong you are able to roll back the changes in just a few mouse clicks.

Software to enforce CPU and RAM limitations on a per user basis to prevent one user monopolising system resources. This addon is recommended for cloud hosting servers providing account access to clients (where you have no direct control over files uploaded to hosting accounts).
Cloudlinux runs alongside cPanel and provides a number of benefits to the user:
- Improved stability by limiting the resources any single user can consume
In shared hosting, one of the most common reasons for downtime is when a single account slows down other accounts on the server. Using cPanel & WHM software with CloudLinux implements innovative Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology, improving the density and stability of your shared hosting environment for all accounts.
- Advanced server security
With unique, optional CageFS technology, CloudLinux encapsulates each customer, preventing users from seeing each other and viewing sensitive information. It also prevents a large number of attacks, including most privilege escalation and information disclosure attacks.
- Multiple PHP versions
Using CloudLinux together with cPanel & WHM software gives your customers with the flexibility to choose the PHP version that they need.
- Hardened kernel
The shared hosting environment is unlike any other and the CloudLinux kernel takes that into account. It can protect against symlink attacks and trace exploits, while restricting the visibility of ProcFS to only what is necessary — making your cPanel & WHM servers more secure.
- Admin interface within cPanel & WHM software to easily manage account usage
Within cPanel & WHM, CloudLinux gives you and your clients the visibility and accessibility to see and control the exact resource usage of each website.

Litespeed Web Server Enterprise
LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) is up to 6 times faster than Apache for website and PHP performance. It also brings security benefits and extra features such as HTTP/2. The license is available for servers with up to 8 GB RAM – contact us if your server has more RAM. LSWS works as a drop-in replacement for Apache with hosting control panels — replacing Apache in less than 15 minutes with zero downtime. Unlike other frontend proxy-based solutions, LSWS replaces all Apache functions, simplifying use and making the transition from Apache smooth and easy.
With its streamlined event-driven architecture, LiteSpeed Web Server can serve thousands of clients concurrently with minimal memory consumption and CPU usage. LSWS’s highly optimized code serves static content faster, taking advantage of high-performance kernel syscalls, while LSAPI maximizes PHP performance. LSWS serves more users, handles traffic spikes, and neutralizes DDoS attacks without new hardware.
LSWS also increases Server Security. It is mod_security compatible and has a host of built-in anti-DDoS features, like bandwidth and connection throttling. Security updates are released as soon as new attack methods become known.

We sometimes need to reboot your cloud hosting server to apply critical security updates. These reboots can be avoided by using KernelCare which automatically updates the system kernel without requiring a reboot.
