CPU Resource Usage

Shared Servers

Darrel Technologies allows a maximum of 25% CPU usage limit. You may exceed this limit for no longer than 90 seconds.

It is unlikely that you hit the 25% CPU usage. Unless your site is script intensive and requires more processing.

Here are some valuable tricks to lessen your 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

Reseller servers have the same limits as Shared servers, however, the limit is per cPanel, not for the entire reseller package. 

However, if you have multiple cPanel accounts contributing to a server problem, we may suspend any of them.

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.

Dedicated Servers

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

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