There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc. 2) Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD. 3) Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers. 4) Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network. 5) Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers. 6) Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities 7) Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc. 8) Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes. 9) Run any MySQL queries longer than 15 seconds. MySQL tables should be indexed appropriately. 10) When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include ("http://yourdomain.com/include.php") use include ("include.PHP") 11) To help reduce usage, do not force html to handle server-side code (like PHP and shtml). 12) Only use https protocol when necessary; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than unencrypted communications.
