    Hi everyone,

    I have two hosting accounts, one with namecheap and the other with awardspace, I have 26 sites on awardspace and 13 on namecheap.

    I had some problems with namecheap, I was on shared hosting @ $13 a month and tried to upgrade to VPS but, found out that my sites were using too much memory or something like that so, they suggested that I go to business hosting @ $30 a month and that`s where I am now. Thing is i checked the "Resource Usage" within cpanel and found that my sites were maxing out the CPU which is set at 12%. I moved all but, the top traffic sites over to awardspace and i`m now left with 13 on namecheap, things seem to be more stable now.

    I`m paying $34 for 3 months on awardspace and $30 for 1 month on namecheap, so was thinking of moving my sites over to awardspace and ditching namecheap.

    I created a support ticket on awardspace asking what the CPU usage is and they said "There is no CPU memory limit for paid users. Unfortunately there is no place where you can check stuff like this."

    Is this possible??

    I am very surprised. Actually every web host set some limitation on CPU memory usage on shared & VPS hosting and usually reliable web hosts never hide these kind of things. However, it is totally up to you whether you want to continue with them or not.

    thanks for the reply and that`s what i said to them.

    Their reply was: "The Max Pack is a shared hosting we have allocated more then enough CPU for all users. Theoretically IF you reach the CPU's full limit you will be queued for CPU time with a certain priority. The server load only goes up if there is someone that abuses the server but we have 24/7 support and administrators online to deal with situations like this."

    I think the problem with the CPU usage with namecheap was my 3 year old wordpress databases with left over tables, i think i need to go and optimize them and then hopefully merge the sites over to awardspace and save myself $30 a month!!

    I think you should get dedicated server hosting. I mean calculate how long you spent money on hosting with both web host. $30 + $34 = $64; you could easily got single core classic dedicated server at $64, but this is just form my point of view so don't take my opinion so seriously.

    very true however, i don`t think i need it.

    i`m guessing that swollen databases would take a chuck off the CPU usage so, if i take some time going through them all, I should be able to reduce the load and just have the $34 for 3 month hosting. Have wordpress blogs that have left crap behind after removing plugins, pain in the ass going through them but, could save me some cash.
