All arithmetical and logical functions inside a computer/server configuration are handled by its Central Processing Unit, or CPU. This hardware component is usually called the "brains" of the computer as well. The pace at which the CPU carries out system instructions is commonly referred to as its speed and it is measured in Hertz. The faster the processing unit is, the faster scripts and web programs shall be executed, even though the overall performance of the latter is determined by other things too - the read/write speed of the hard drive, the amount of physical memory, the network connectivity, and many others. All newer CPUs have numerous cores, which work together. For that reason, the overall performance and the workload that a CPU can handle increase, as each and every core can process different tasks independently and several cores can handle 1 task that can't be processed by one core.
CPU Share in VPS Servers
We offer a wide selection of VPS server solutions that are well suited for various purposes. If you require a web server to gain root access, but you don't need lots of processing power, for example, you can buy a lower-end plan which includes less resources. The VPS shall be created on a physical hosting server and our system will set aside a particular CPU share to it. If you need additional resources in the future, you shall be able to upgrade to a more powerful plan from the billing Control Panel, and because every single package offers a particular CPU quota that your apps can utilize, the additional quota will be added to your current account. The physical web servers in which the virtual ones are set up are provided with 16-core, 3.0+ GHz processors and just a few VPS accounts are created on a particular web server, so you will be able to use a virtual server which is as powerful as you require it to be.
CPU Share in Dedicated Servers
Our dedicated server packages offer different hardware configurations, thus, based on what you need the web server for and on your budget, you can choose the suitable one for you. Apart from the various RAM and disk space allocations, every package comes with different CPU shares also. The CPUs we make available have 2-12 cores, so you can select the package that will suit your needs best. With the most powerful package deal, every program that you run on the web server shall run very fast no matter what resources it needs and irrespective of how many people are using it simultaneously, but even the lower-end packages are adequate for most kinds of websites. The efficiency of the CPUs is tested along with all the other hardware components, in order to ensure that the server that we'll hand over to you shall work faultlessly and at optimum capacity at all times.
