What is the difference between Shared And Business hosting?



The following table should clarify the differences:

?

?SharedBusiness
Clients Per Server 200 50
CPU Limit 25% No Soft Limit*
Excessive Resource Suspension Yes, after five (5) warnings None
Virus/Malware Scans Twice monthly Weekly
PHP Memory Limit 256MB 512MB


?

?*Soft Limit is what triggers an "Excessive Resource Warning"

?

  • Our Business Plans are monitored for resources but they are not automatically suspended for "Excessive Resource?Usage" like the Shared Plans. Also, if they begin using too many resources, they would have to upgrade to no less than a "Level 5 VPS" in order to see upgraded performance.

  • Our Shared Plans however are limited to 25% CPU and if they hit that limit more than 5 times in a month the account will be automatically suspended.?This is in good practice for fair share of server resources between all users on the server. (That way, we prevent people from hosting Google* on our servers for $5 a month.)

NOTE:?If you require SSH access or require a more secured and independent environment, it is suggested to use a VPS.
