    Seems high; did you setup a test site, how does it load? If it loads slowly then you'll have your answer.

    It mostly comes down to server performance as each server is different. If your site loads quickly and you're not running into 500 errors or SQL connection failures and the like then you should be fine. However, if the service degrades or you notice some issues, then bring it up with your host first. If they care enough they will resolve the issue.

    It does appear to be high. Try running a ping and traceroute and see what type of connection you are getting. I would advice you to look elsewhere, but that is just me.

    The load does seem high for a server with only 4CPU's

    Any chance you can look in server information and tell us what cpu its running?

    What would unlimited diskpace/bandwidth have to do with it?

    It could be another user putting a bad script on the server causing high server load for all we know...

    Most of these hosts offering Unlimited dont monitor there servers. and oversell like mad. which in turn causes high server load

    Overselling isnt a bad thing unless done right...

    However like i said it could be a number of things causing the load just assuming the host is at fault all the time isnt good...

    agreed, but when the OP says "The cpu is always 3-8 / 4 it seem to be badly oversold"

    I would expect it would be down to mad overselling or rubbish server spec.

    There's bad apples in every bunch. I'm not here to toot our horn or anything, but we do offer unlimited plans and we do employ several forms of monitoring. I would hope the OP has contacted his host for a resolution by now. In fact, he should have contacted them before coming to WHT.

    You are right, but the OP mentioned that it's always around 3-8 which does seem like the server is a bit overloaded at times. If this happens often it could very well be an oversold server. I don't think any host would allow an customer to overload the server more then a couple of times and not take actions against it since it affects the other customers.

    Im slightly more concerned that your client exec install didn't require a key? They always have on every install i've done for our clients?

    Yeh, that would ring alarm bells to me.

    Also, a high server load doesn't always mean oversold. Depending upon how power-full the actual server is.

    It could be one person on the server running a dodgy script yet the host hasnt found whos causing it...

    I dont understand why people jump on the oversold/overloaded band wagon when they see abit of spike...

    Yes and i like i said, How do you know their isnt someone running a bad script which is keeping the load that high?

    You dont...

    Yet you assume the server is oversold!

    How about i sign up with your hosting and place a poorly coded script within the account and watch the server load go well into the 20's - 40's and come here and say your server is oversold?

    Get what am saying?

    High server load doesnt allways mean that its overloaded or oversold, It could well be a simple clown playing hosting a poor script...!

    Theirs way to many thinks that comes to mind without jumping to the assumption of overloaded servers!

    "How about i sign up with your hosting and place a poorly coded script within the account and watch the server load go well into the 20's - 40's and come here and say your server is oversold?"

    That would not happen. there is restrictions in place to prevent this

    You are not a client and never will be so why should you be concerned with the terms?
