Fix "Resource Limit Reached" Errors

Table of Contents

If you or your visitors are getting resource limit reached errors, this is usually because your hosting plan does not support the number of concurrent visitors you have.

Our shared hosting plans have the following resource limits.

Basic

  • 1 CPU
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 5 MB/s
  • 2048 IOPS

Elite

  • 1.5 CPU
  • 1.8 GB RAM
  • 8 MB/s
  • 3096 IOPS

Unlimited

  • 2 CPU
  • 2.3 GB RAM
  • 12 MB/s
  • 4096 IOPS

Having more visitors on at onetime means you'll need more resources to handle the traffic because the server will need to process more concurrent requests. If you are frequently hitting this limit, you can upgrade your plan without migrating anything to fix this error.

If you are getting this error even when you aren't receiving lots of traffic, it could be because you have a resource-intensive script constantly running, or you have a very heavy site.

Heavy Sites #

If you are running a heavy custom CMS, or using WordPress with Woocommerce and/or many plugins, you will likely hit this limit much more easily.

To help optimize your site, we recommend checking out our speed guide, as well as reducing the number of plugins you have. We also strongly recommend implement a caching solution via WP if possible. This can dramatically reduce your site load time and get rid of all "Resource Limit" errors.

If you need any help at all, our support team of WordPress experts is happy to help you optimize your site and maximize its performance.
