    I confirmed that the limit was recently removed by one of our Customer Care representatives, so I went ahead and checked the history of your issue. Our team applied several modifications such as blocking the traffic from bad bots which helped with previous occurrences of this issue.

    Turns our that this is not the first time you are exceeding your CPU seconds limit. And most of the times it was between 1:00AM and 7:00AM.

    After checking the WordPress scheduled events I believe that the events in your WordPress are not well optimised, and there are a lot of events that coincide with each other. If this occurs often, you are likely to exceed the CPU limitation again, because the scheduled events take some time, and perform executions which exhaust the resources for your StartUp plan.

    You might want to consider editing your scheduled events tables – meaning, you can spread the events through time with bigger intervals between them, and terminate the trivial events that are not vital for your website.

    Additionally, you should consider disabling WordPress cron and setting up a Cron Jon from your cPanel. By doing this, you will be able to control the scheduled events even better and this should help you with the resource usage.

    As for the visits you are referring to, note that you are using a StartUp plan. This hosting product will enable us to cache only the static content of your website. If you decide to upgrade to GrowBig the Dynamic caching will be available and it should lower the resource usage even further.

    Of course, I would recommend testing with the scheduled events, and consider an upgrade if this is not enough for your website.

    Feel free to post a Support Ticket if you need our assistance.
