Cloudmin or Virtualmin for Dedicated server?

I have a large dedicated server (Dual Intel Xeon X5650 2.66GHz HexaCore) 24 cores, 32 GB ram and 240 GB SSD drive that I want to use for 5 or 6 personal websites I maintain. In the past I have used Virtualmin on VPS servers for each website separately. Now I want to combine all of my websites on this new server. I like the idea of being able to specify bandwidth, ram, cpu’s and disk space for each website using Cloudmin. Which is the better choice for me to run 5 or 6 websites and control them? With cloudmin each of my websites would have virtualmin installed similar to when I was using VPS hosting? I hope I understand this correctly.

Also, my server is setup with centos 7 (64bit). Can I run Cloudmin on it? I have read it is not supported.

Thanks for the help guys!

Hi,

Cloudmin allows you to create VPS’. This is how you are able to isolate space, memory and CPU for each individual website.

Because a VPS (virtual private server) works similar to a dedicated server, each instance will need to have Virtualmin installed as it won’t see the other instances.

Do you guys think I need to use Cloudmin for running three or four personal websites are will Virtualmin work for my needs? I believe I can allocate bandwidth and disk space using Virtualmin. Not sure what my best option is. Thanks for the help.

Howdy,

If you’re interested in running those websites all on one server, Virtualmin will do exactly what you’re after.

Cloudmin would help if you’re interested in setting up individual VPS’s for your domains.

If you do that, you could still use Virtualmin on each VPS.

Hi,

I’d second Eric’s note about the usage of Virtualmin and/or Cloudmin. We host hundreds of websites under a single copy of Virtualmin in a “shared hosting” environment. However, if these websites are big or resource hogs, and you wish to isolate them from each other then Cloudmin would be a good way to go, where you’d install Virtualmin inside each Cloudmin container (VPS) to manage the individual website.
