    Pretty much none. The service I provide does not limit you much, but if the CPU meters are 100% all the time, even I would start to complain and suggest moving to VPS or dedi.

    Just noticed that you've posted this in Blogging forum. Are these autoblogs you're going to run? If so, set up some caching and it should not even use that much of CPU after the cache has been generated. This way shared hosting would be fine.

    Hostgator allows 25% CPU power. That means 6 hours per day. Not sure about others.

    No, it does not mean that. What 25% CPU power means is that you cannot hold more than 25% of the entire CPU's resources for more than 90 seconds at any stretch. If that happens, your account will be suspended. So basically if you have a long process running and several hundred people to your site are running that process at the same time, it could happen that they all together take up 25% of your resources for more than 90 seconds, at which point, you may be suspended.


    But they are good in that they let you make the changes required and resubmit. So no worries here.


    OP, You can check out the cheap VPS plans like Virpus. They start at $4 a month, so pretty much like shared hosting in terms of price, but then you don't get a managed server, so you have to do a bit of backend tasks as well. Not difficult, but if you have not done it earlier, it can look a little intimidating. I found it at least.
