File Limits (Resource Usage Policies)

Posted December 1, 2015

Having too many files on your account may affect the performance of the server. In order to avoid these problems, inodes are used as a basis for counting the number of files and directories you have created or uploaded in your account. Inodes are simply metadata containers used by the operating system to store information of a file.

The calculation of your inode usage includes everything in your /home directory which comprises of your emails, backups, system files and, of course, your website files. 1 inode = 1 file or directory. 

Your web hosting service is restricted to a specific amount of inodes (see below). When you reach this limit, you will not be able to store or create new files. To decrease your inode usage, please regularly delete unused files and directories.

You should not delete any file or directory outside public_html as they can break your account. Violators will be penalized a service fee for restoration.

For SSD Unmetered packages, inode limits are as follows:

GIGA - 70,000
MEGA - 50,000
SOLO - 20,000
