Hello Yoky,

Thank you for contacting our Help Desk!

You have reached daily limit for CPU executions on your hosting plan. The CPU executions is high after many hits performed upon the following files:

/home/pregnaq2/public_html/resep/index.php 117 068
/home/pregnaq2/public_html/resep/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php 40 841

Using AWStats tool from the cPanel, I found that following IP address made lots of hits:

Code: 15,346 18,749 164.58 MB 28 Dec 2015 – 11:49 13,907 17,160 147.91 MB 28 Dec 2015 – 11:45 13,868 16,998 146.64 MB 28 Dec 2015 – 11:50 8,691 23,533 349.14 MB 30 Dec 2015 – 07:00

You should check them, and consider blocking them via IP Deny Manager tool from the cPanel, in order to prevent them from making hits and increasing CPU usage. Here is an article on the tool that you may check:

In addition, there are lots of hits made by crawling bots:

Robots/Spiders visitors (Top 25) – Full list – Last visit
20 different robots* Hits Bandwidth Last visit
Googlebot 29,039+629 182.98 MB 30 Dec 2015 – 08:41
Unknown robot (identified by ‘bot’ followed by a space or one of the following characters _+:,.;/\-) 21,828+4008 257.67 MB 30 Dec 2015 – 10:51
Googlebot-Image 21,080 276.50 MB 30 Dec 2015 – 07:01
Unknown robot (identified by ‘crawl’) 8,371+180 99.54 MB 30 Dec 2015 – 06:49
Unknown robot (identified by ‘bot’ preceded by a space or one of the following characters _+:,.;/\-) 5,302+8 130.22 MB 30 Dec 2015 – 06:45
Unknown robot (identified by empty user agent string) 4,967+4 180.98 MB 30 Dec 2015 – 06:58

You should consider blocking them in order to prevent them affecting the CUP usage on the account. For the Google bot, which is the web crawler that has visited your website the most, you can limit the crawl rate through your Google Webmaster Tools account, as explained in the article below:

For the unknown bots (Unknown robot (identified by …), most of which ignore any robots.txt rules, you can use a different approach, which is adding the following rules in the .htaccess file of your account:

Regarding hits made by file wp-admin/admin-ajax.php, please, check the following article on how to manage and reduce them:
