CPU Resource Usage
Posted by SEO Admin on 01 May 2015 10:07 AM

We monitor all CPU usage on Shared plans. The limitations for each of our hosting options are explained in detail below. This info will help you become familiar with our resource limits and give you more info about checking on your usage.

CPU Usage Limits

Check out our usage limits per plan...

Shared Servers

We allow a maximum of 10% CPU usage limit. It's pretty unlikely that you will go over 10% CPU usage. Unless your site is script intensive and requires a lot of processing, you should be good.

If you find your CPU usage is running high, check out these tricks to help bring it down a bit:

  • Reduce the number of banners and ads from other sites on your site.

  • Avoid using too many scripts, and do not force HTML to handle server-side code (like PHP and SHTML).

  • Avoid using https protocol as much as possible; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than unencrypted communications.

Flash, video, audio, and image files are downloaded to the browser, which just uses bandwidth.

VPS Servers

You are allowed to use 100% of your CPU resources. However, this is only a portion of the server's total CPU resources. If you are looking for more CPU resources than a Shared Server, you will NOT want to pick VPS; instead, you should choose a Dedicated Server option. See our plans here.

Dedicated Servers

You are allowed to use 100% of the server's CPU resources.

A good trick for VPS and Dedicated server users is to turn off the webstat programs (AWstat) that comes with your cPanel. AWstat and other tracking tools use CPU and MySQL connections. By turning this off, you reduce your CPU usage.

Monitor CPU Usage

Keep an overall eye on your usage right from your cPanel dashboard. Log in and view all your details from the left-hand sidebar within cPanel.
