We offer various plans for customers to start with, but we let them change the configuration easily, and CloudLinux OS helps us quickly provision it.

Palo Alto CA, June 15, 2017 – Leading OS developer CloudLinux announced today that the new hosting model initiative they are spearheading together with several other companies, has launched the official Elastic Sites provider seal to support the expansion of this hosting model across multiple continents.
According to the last year’s web hosting industry survey, 66% of shared hosting customers switch to VPS just to get more resources. Elastic Sites run on a shared server powered by the CloudLinux OS. The OS isolates each customer into a separate Lightweight Virtualized Environment (LVE), which allocates and limits server resources, like RAM, CPU, throughput and connections, for that customer. These limits improve server stability because other customers cannot use more than they are allocated and bring down their shared server. It is the alternative to VPS that allows growing customers to gain more resources without adding the burden of server management that comes with a VPS.
“We’ve been seeing a need to offer our customers more, but every time we’ve revisited the VPS option, we knew they weren’t the right fit,” said Jason Jersey, President of SiteColo, a Wadsworth Littleton company. “Elastic Sites is a no-brainer to us. Our customers now have a seamless upgrade path, and once an upgrade or downgrade is placed, they’re instantly provisioned without any manual actions.”
Elastic Sites hosting allows hosting providers to set up flexible plan options to best fit their customer needs and update resources on a per-customer basis.
“No hosting customer is the same, so neither should their hosting package be,” said Patrick Sanders, the owner of 040hosting. “We offer various plans for customers to start with, but we let them change the configuration easily, and CloudLinux OS helps us quickly provision it.”
Several hosting providers, including Antagonist, the Netherlands’ number one provider of shared hosting, have been successfully offering services based on the elastic sites hosting model for years. “Allowing…
