as I was not able to find a pre-sales question forum I am posting here now. I actually think about buying ASL for my upcoming shared hosting server for about 200 customers. The hardware would be my Hetzner EX41SSD (i7-6700, 32 GB DDR4,2 x 500 GB SSD, 1gbit). Software-Setup:
CentOS 7.3 + cPanel + nginx/litespeed + ASL. Your FAQs implicate all of this software would run together with ASL, is this correct and which installation order would you recommend (I thought about doing it in the 'shown sequence)?
Moreover some of my customers use cloudflare CDN to protect their sites (some with free plan and some with 20$ pro plan). As I have read even CF works with ASL, but:
- Which webserver would be better (more secure) to do this (as with nginx I MUST use T-WAF)?
- Does ASL waf generally work with free plans?
What do you think in generall about this setup? Do you think this would be a fast AND secure setup for my customers?
I am asking this because I dont know if - for example - CloudLinux would be needed for a shared hosting setup like this (e.g. because I read this post from scott):
I think everyone who hasnt been getting used to systemd over the last 2 years is going to find it pretty frustrating until they learn how to take advantage of it.
(...) The capabilities its bringing to the table is pretty impressive. It brings all the resource management that distros like Cloudlinux & Betterlinux do by default, as well as Container based virtualization like openvz/virtuozzo (They call them Namespaces), not to mention KVM, Xen, and Docker.
