5 Steps to getting the most out of cheap WordPress hosting

Introduction

It may seem unfair, but a well-built WordPress website can be completely damaged if you are hosting it with a low-quality web host provider. Choosing the right company will ensure the success of your business and it will serve an important role throughout its life-span.

How is Cheap WordPress Hosting Possible?

With this being said, most hosting companies are able to offer extremely low prices to their clients. Knowing this information suddenly makes people’s decisions be based upon “who has the lowest price” and then they choose the cheapest WordPress hosting provider they can.

However, we must not forget about quality. There is a big difference between a website that merely runs and one that runs well. Although most  “shared servers ” (shared hosts) meet their user’s demands, there are many other factors that need to be taken into consideration.

Right off the bat, you wouldn’t have to consider the tremendous initial investment for a hosting system that’s capable of providing enough room and reliability for your […] Continue Reading…

Website limits reached – what to do?

When your traffic increases, you might experience a Website limits reached error. But why does this happen and what does it mean?

Every hosting package comes with limited resources:

Geek plan – Cpu 50%, virtual memory 1536Mb, Physical memory 1536, Entry processes 40, Number of processes 20, I/O 1024
Nerd plan – Cpu 60%, virtual memory 3072Mb, Physical memory 3072, Entry processes 50, Number of processes 50, I/O 2048
Freek plan – Cpu 60%, virtual memory 4096Mb, Physical memory 4096, Entry processes 60, Number of processes 100, I/O 2048

Most of the cases, the error is caused by the number of entry processes.

 

What is an entry process?
Well, when logging in your cPanel, you can see in your Statistics the Entry processes number. The number shows just how many PHP scripts you have running at the same time. As you can see above, the limits are 20/50/60 of PHP scripts running at the same time.

Despite rumors, a 20 limit Entry process does not mean that your website can only be accessed by 20 visitors, simultaneously.

 

How to solve the issue?
You can […] Continue Reading…
