All arithmetical and logical operations in a computer/server configuration are handled by its Central Processing Unit, or CPU. This hardware component is typically called the "brains" of the computer as well. The pace at which the CPU executes system instructions is generally referred to as its speed and it is measured in Hertz. The faster the processing unit is, the speedier scripts and web applications shall be executed, even though 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, etc. All newer CPUs have numerous cores, that work together. As a result, the functionality and the workload that a CPU can handle increase, due to the fact that every core can process several tasks independently and a number of cores can handle a single task which cannot be processed by 1 core.
CPU Share in Dedicated Hosting
Our dedicated server plans provide various hardware configurations, therefore, depending on what you need the server for and on your budget, you can choose the suitable one for you. Apart from the numerous RAM and disk space allocations, every plan features different CPU shares also. The CPUs that we make available have 2-12 cores, so you could pick the package that'll match your requirements best. With the most powerful plan, any program which you run on the server shall run very quick regardless what resources it needs and irrespective of how many people are using it at the same time, but even the lower-end plans are suitable for most types of sites. The performance of the CPUs is tested together with all the other hardware elements, in order to ensure that the web server that we will hand over to you will work faultlessly and at 100% capacity all the time.
