Learn about CPU Resource Restriction

CPU Resource Restriction

Resource intensive websites can lead to server issues and, consequently, can result in account restrictions. EACdirectory allows a maximum of 25% CPU usage limit on our shared and reseller servers. If a hosting account exceeds this limit for longer than 90 seconds, resource restrictions will be placed on the account.

At this time, if the CPU usage for an account is found to be outside of our terms of service, we will begin serving a cached version of your site. This means that your site will be rendered statically and will be served with updates at regular intervals. If this is happening, you may notice a significant delay for changes to your site to be visible after you have made them.
