First of all, check if your DNS is responding in different ISP or not. Simply enter your domain here and use the “A” check:
It should return the same IP in all the dns without any error. If it is returning multiple IPs, then looks like, you have ambiguous nameservers in your domain registry. Check if your set DNS nameservers are correct.
If it is returning any error, then, first trace using the “DNS Trace” option you can find here:
If they are responding with “Got Authoritative Answer”, then try any of the following dns health test to see if there are some internal command error:
It could be an error related to custom nameserver or some specific dns entry. The above tools would specify where do you have the error.
In any case, you do not understand or having issues with anything related to DNS, do not hesitate to contact CentrioHost Support immediately.

You Enjoy Spending Time Surfing the WebSuccessful blogging requires a large time commitment and a great deal of sweat equity. Blogging doesn't stop after you write and publish a blog post. Instead, it requires promotion, visiting and reading other blogs and websites, staying abreast of news and issues related to your blog topic, and more. Most of your blogging activities will occur online. To be a successful blogger, you must enjoy reading, researching, spending time on your computer and surfing the web.
You Like to WriteIf you abhor writing or writing doesn't come naturally to you, then blogging might not be for you. Building a successful blog requires frequent, meaningful updates, responding to comments, leaving comments on other blogs and more. Each of those success factors requires writing. To be a successful blogger, you must be able to write prolifically.
You're Passionate About Your Blog's TopicSuccessful blogging requires that the blogger write frequent, meaningful posts about their blog's topic to attract new readers, keep readers interested and keep readers coming back. If you are only slightly interested in your blog's topic, it will be difficult to log in each day and come up with fresh, exciting posts and commentary. By choosing a topic you're passionate about, it will be easier to update your blog with a smile on your face each day.
You Can Commit to BloggingSuccessful blogging is a commitment in terms of time and effort and requires a great deal of self-discipline and self-motivation. You must have the ability to fit blogging into your schedule and be commited to sticking to that schedule.
You're Comfortable Publicizing Your Thoughts, Opinions and IdeasAs a blogger, you will be publishing your opinions for the entire online community to read. While it is possible to remain anonymous and become a successful blogger, anonymous success is not the norm. To attract a large audience and appear legitimate in the blogosphere, more people have taken to sharing their identities and a fair amount of personal information online. As such, bloggers are exposed to negative responses to their posts, and sometimes those negative critiques can be hurtful. Successful bloggers can handle negative criticism.
You're Not Afraid of Technology and You Are Willing to LearnBlogging requires some knowledge of the Internet and simple software. If you are afraid of your computer, then blogging may not be for you. Alternatively, if you are willing to learn, you can blog. Blogging and the Internet as a whole are ever-changing, and even the most successful bloggers are constantly trying to learn new things to further enhance their blogs. To be a successful blogger, you must be willing to learn how to get started and how to maintain and improve your blog in the future.
You're Willing to Take RisksMuch of successful blogging is related to taking risks from diving in and starting your first blog to launching your blog's first advertisement or adding the first link to your blogroll. To be a successful blogger, you have to be willing to try new things to enhance and promote your blog.

First of all, if you have root access to your server, you can eventually block wp-cron.php using mod_security, this would prevent wp-cron.php usage throughout the web server. But you can still call it using the cronjobs. How to setup wp-cron.php manual cronjobs, can be found in my blog post “Reducing CPU Usage for WordPress blog” post.
If you are on a shared hosting or want to permanently stop this culprit, you would need to stop spawning this php file. wp-cron.php calls cron.php file which is located under your wordpress root/wp-includes/ folder. Open the file in your file manager or using FTP browser and find the line stating:
spawn_cron( $local_time );
Now comment this line and you should stop wp-cron.php spawning everytime an user enters your site. You can comment it with two slashes as following:
// spawn_cron( $local_time );
You have to keep in mind, this would stop all sort of scheduled event as well.
I could discover another alternative that would stop wp-cron.php from running using http request, but would work fine using cronjobs. Open cron.php and find the following line:
if ( strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], ‘/wp-cron.php’) !== false || ( defined(‘DISABLE_WP_CRON’) && DISABLE_WP_CRON ) )
Now, replace this line of code with the following:
if ( strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], ‘/wp-cron.php’) === false || ( defined(‘DISABLE_WP_CRON’) && DISABLE_WP_CRON ) )
Make sure the immediate next line “return” must remain in the immediate line.
You can also put the following in your wp-config.php file to set DISABLE_WP_CRON global variable to TRUE:
At last, you should make sure wp-cron.php runs using cronjobs for your scheduled events, but if you don’t have scheduled events, then you better stay away from adding it in cronjobs as well. But if you do, then have a look at my previous post for setting up the manual cronjobs of wp-cron.php using cpanel.
Any of the above solution should prevent your wp-cron.php from firing and taking high CPU. Happy blogging :)
