I'm curious to know what other cPanel CloudLinux administrators have set for their default limits.
The recommended default limits given at - http://docs.cloudlinux.com/index.html?limits.html - to me, seem to be very high. I'm curious to know what the purpose of these high default limits are. If the default limits are set high enough such that all hosting accounts (or the vast, vast majority of them) all fit under limits, then what are the limits for? Wouldn't you be just as well off with a normal CentOS system?
Web hosting has fallen to absurdly low prices. To me, it would seem to make sense that these absurdly low priced hosting accounts would have very low limits - default limits. And a bump up in these limits would warrant a higher priced hosting plan. But instead it seems that even low priced budget hosts with CloudLinux limits are still offering higher limits, such as those recommended by CloudLinux for their cheapest plans. This begs the question, what is the point of CloudLinux then?
I do realize that CloudLinux offers CageFS and mod_lsapi, which may be CloudLinux's two greatest selling points. And it's not really CloudLinux's fault regarding the limits, they allow each server administrator to set their own limits. It just seems that most of the people using CloudLinux aren't taking advantage of how these limits can be more efficiently deployed.
