All arithmetical and logical procedures in a computer/server configuration are handled by its Central Processing Unit, or CPU. This hardware element is usually called the "brains" of the personal computer as well. The pace at which the CPU completes system instructions is also referred to as its speed and it is measured in Hertz. The swifter the processing unit is, the more quickly scripts and web apps shall be executed, although the general performance of the latter is determined by other things as well - the read/write speed of the hard disk, the amount of physical memory, the network connection, and so forth. All new CPUs have a number of cores, that work together. Thus, the functionality and the workload that a CPU can take care of increase, because each and every core can process various tasks separately and numerous cores can handle a single task which can't be processed by 1 core.

CPU Share in VPS Servers

The CPU speeds provided by our VPS plans fluctuate dramatically and you can select the VPS with the most appropriate system resources for your sites. If you need a VPS for one site that does not have lots of visitors, for instance, you can get a low-end plan, that will also be less expensive compared to the high-end solutions that come with massive CPU quotas and which can easily match even a dedicated server. We set up only several VPS accounts on very effective servers with 16-core processors, so the CPU share that you will get with your new package will be guaranteed at all times and the performance of your server will never be affected by other virtual accounts on the same physical server. Upgrading from one plan to another shall only take a few mouse clicks from the billing Control Panel and the additional CPU share will be assigned to your account right away.
