All arithmetical and logical functions in a computer/server configuration are addressed by its Central Processing Unit, or CPU. This hardware element is usually called the "brains" of the PC also. The pace at which the CPU completes system instructions is usually referred to as its speed and it is measured in Hertz. The quicker the processing unit is, the more quickly scripts and web apps will be executed, even though the overall performance of the latter depends on other things as well - the read/write speed of the hard disk, the amount of physical memory, the network connection, etc. All new CPUs have multiple cores, that work together. Subsequently, the functionality and the workload a CPU can tackle increase, because every single core can process various tasks independently and numerous cores can handle a single task that cannot be processed by 1 core.

CPU Share in VPS Servers

The CPU speeds offered by our VPS servers fluctuate dramatically and you can pick the VPS with the best suited system resources for your Internet sites. If you need a VPS for 1 Internet site which does not have a lot of visitors, for example, you can get a low-end plan, that will also be more affordable in comparison to the high-end plans which include massive CPU quotas and which could easily match a dedicated server. We create only a few VPS accounts on powerful hosting servers with 16-core processors, so the CPU share you will get with your new package deal will be guaranteed at all times and the performance of your hosting server will not be affected by other virtual accounts on the very same physical server. Upgrading from one plan to another shall only take a few clicks from the billing CP and the extra CPU share will be allotted to your account right away.
