Domain name registrar Name.com announced on Tuesday that it is now using the CloudLinux OS in order to improve load times, stability and the customer experience of its shared hosting services.

Shared hosting users can be affected by the ‘noisy neighbor’ effect – when individual users monopolize server resources and performance on other accounts decrease. Name.com noticed this issue in its shared hosting environment, and adopted CloudLinux to help mitigate this issue.

“CloudLinux has significantly improved the stability and performance of our shared hosting servers,” Dave McBreen, Name.com’s software engineering senior director said in a statement. “It has been a game changer for our hosting environment.”

A year ago, CloudLinux updated its Lightweight Virtual Environment technology to define resource limits for specific web hosting services. The update enabled web hosts to link LVE Manager with the pre-defined packages in their chosen control panel, automating the process of defining LVE limits for each of their shared hosting plans.

“We take pride in our growing relationship with Name.com because the company is a lot like CloudLinux,” Igor Seletskiy, founder and CEO at CloudLinux said in a statement. “Name.com is renowned for its customer support, giving webmasters the assistance they need to get the most from their hosting. However, when problems occur with an OS, maintaining support and service quality is difficult. At CloudLinux, we are very committed to our customers, and, in this case, we used our own excellent customer support team to help Name.com eliminate its issues.”

Web hosts including LogicWeb and SoftLayer partnered with CloudLinux last year to improve their hosting services and offer CloudLinux OS to partners, respectively.
