What is VPS

CPU of VPS & how you can judge whether it is best or not

What is CPU information for VPS

The virtual server can place fake information on the CPU information, so it may be inaccurate.
But in some of the cases, it is accurate and we can judge whether we get good CPU’s one or not by looking at the CPU information.

If you have time, you can recreate the instance again if the CPU is not ideal for you.
