What Resource Restrictions Do I Have On Shared Server Plans

This article contains information about restrictions on our shared servers.

To keep our shared servers well-balanced, we must invoke a cap on the amount of CPU and memory usage your account can utilize.

The CPU is currently capped at 10% and memory is around 12MB.

Generally speaking, you won't run into a problem unless you fall under one of the following categories:

  • Host a large number of downloadable files
  • Become a victim of the "Digg" effect where a large number of visitors happen to your website in a short amount of time.
  • Utilize a great number of server-side scripts (such as PHP or RoR).
  • Host community-oriented software (such as a blog, forum, etc.) that becomes popular.

If you go over your allotment, you're account will likely be suspended and an e-mail will be dispatched explaining what happened.

Nobody wants their account to be suspended, but we have little choice but to keep the peace on the other accounts located on your server.
