All arithmetical and logical operations within a computer/server configuration are addressed by its Central Processing Unit, or CPU. This hardware component is oftentimes called the "brains" of the personal computer as well. The rate at which the CPU executes system instructions is commonly referred to as its speed and it is measured in Hertz. The swifter the processing unit is, the faster scripts and web apps shall be executed, though the overall performance of the latter is determined by other things also - the read/write speed of the hard drive, the amount of physical memory, the network connection, etc. All newer CPUs have a number of cores, which work together. Subsequently, the functionality and the workload a CPU can handle increase, since each and every core can process different tasks independently and several cores can handle a single task which can't be processed by 1 core.
CPU Share in VPS Servers
If you choose to host your websites on a VPS server from our company, you shall be able to select between a range of packages which provide different resources, including the CPU share which will be allotted to the new account. Thus, you can opt for a package which will be well suited for your sites with regard to both the resources and the monthly charge that you'll pay for them. We use very efficient physical servers with multi-core processors operating at 3.0+ GHz, so the CPU quota you will get will be guaranteed at all times, because we set up just a few virtual servers on the physical machines. This offers you the opportunity to upgrade your package in the future as much as you would like, without having to worry that there will not be enough resources on the hosting server. This type of an upgrade shall take just 2 mouse clicks from your billing CP.
