I am using siteground hosting and was alerted the other day that I was overusing my CPU and php executions and run a forums and a website, and have been forced to upgrade my siteground hosting.
What I can't work out is why this is being overused: we have 124 members and maximum 16 online Dev.viridimilitis.com and the main website is a simple one page landing page.
I have since enabled cloudflare but am wondering if there are any other solutions to improve this as it suddenly spiked? I have also disabled the steam integration I added and all other subdomains, very small sites and very few bots come to my site in aw stats.
We're a very small project and can't afford expensive hosting and I was told the simple hosting would be enough but not have to pay $5 more.
Are there any solutions? To reduce php executions and CPU usage.
