Fair Usage Policy

Each web hosting and VPS service is given a “fair-share” usage on the server. In most cases CPU, disk & bandwidth will sit idle. Each VPS has access to several vCPU (depending on your plan) and might use the full processing power as to and when required. Since you are sharing the CPUs with other clients on the node, it is wise to have all of them share "equally". We called it a fair share usage policy.

If your VPS happens to cause issues to other clients on the node your VPS will be limited and notified and asked to make changes to ensure it doesn’t happen again. In addition, a service must not exceed the maximum load allowed which is determined by the amount of CPU Cores you have. If you have 2 vCores then the maximum load allowed at any given time would be 2.00.

As a reference, as long as you are not impacting others then you will not be restricted however as a guide line we ask that you do not average over 60% of a CPU core/thread for more than 24 hours on average or 100% of a core/thread for more than 1 hour.

Bandwidth and disk (i/o) are considered just the same.

Prohibited Uses

Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a server or customer of WinnerVPS is strictly prohibited. As our customer you are responsible for all your accounts. Should you violate the Terms of Services outlined within, your account will be cancelled without chance of refund. Excessive CPU use or continued high disk IO R+W requests will be considered server abuse, CPU cores are given on an equal share basis only they are not dedicated cores for your server alone.
