CloudLinux Pricing Increase

Liquid Web was recently informed that the licensing cost for CloudLinux will be increasing at the beginning of the new year and will take effect on January 1st, 2021. All CloudLinux license types (both standalone and those bundled with cPanel) will increase by $2.00 per month with no variance on license type.

We understand that price increases are never welcome. Although Liquid Web tries to minimize the impact of any cost increase to our clients whenever possible, the CloudLinux licensing fee increase is a pass-through expense and, unfortunately, not something we have control over. Liquid Web appreciates your continued commitment and support through this process. We will continue to keep our clients updated as additional information becomes available.

What is CloudLinux?

CloudLinux OS is a Linux-based OS created for hosting providers to afford a stable and secure operating system. It allows a modified kernel based on the OpenVZ kernel to use a separate environment while applying limits to the CPU, memory, IO, IOPS, the number of processes, and other limitations.

CloudLinux OS improves server stability and security by isolating each client when allocating exact amounts of server resources. This creates an environment that feels more like a virtual server than a shared account. CloudLinux OS works with all major control panels and is compatible with most software commonly used with CentOS and RHEL.
