The maximum limit of CPU usage with 24x7CloudHost is 15%. If this limit is exceeded, it shouldn’t exceed more than 90 seconds. This limit is highly unlikely for a regular website to exceed although in rare cases a script intensive site will take up more than 15% of the CPU usage.
Tricks to lessen the CPU usage:
- Reduce your number of banners and ads from other sites.
- 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. This uses bandwidth only.
Reseller servers also have the same limits as our Shared servers, although this limit is per cPanel and not the entire reseller package. If you do have multiple cPanel accounts responsible for server problems then we will suspend the account without any intimation.
