Why I’m getting “Resource Limit Reached” error on my shared hosting cPanel account?

“Resource Limit Reached” is an error message that indicates a cPanel user has reached its allocated resource limit which are Physical Memory Usage, IOPS, Number Of Processes, I/O Usage and CPU This typically happens when a users exhausts its available CPU, memory, disk space, or other resources due to high traffic, excessive resource usage by applications, or badly coded scripts especially WordPress sites.

To resolve this error, you can try the following steps:

  1. Optimize Code: Review your application’s code to identify any inefficient or resource-intensive processes. Optimize these processes to reduce resource usage, reduce size of banners, images and remove videos contents from the site ( You can make use of embedded links by hosting the videos on external server)
  2. Cache Content: Implement caching mechanisms to reduce the load on your server. Caching commonly accessed content can help alleviate resource strain.
  3. Optimize Database Queries: If your application interacts with a database, optimize database queries to improve efficiency and reduce resource usage.

If you have tried all the above and the issue stills persists, then it shows your site can no longer works effectively on shared hosting account, you need to consider a virtual private server to host your site, see the link below to view our VPS Plan
