Dear Valued Customers,
We will apply the following inode limit on 1st July 2014.
Shared hosting – 250,000
Semi-Dedicated Server/ EBiz Cloud – 500,000
This is an early announcement that JS-Solutions Networks will start to enable inode limitation on cPanel.
WHAT IS INODE
An inode is a data structure used to store all the information about the files on your hosting account, which include emails, files, folders and everything you upload, create or store on the server. The number of inodes indicates the number of files and folders you have.
HOW IT AFFECTS YOU
JS-Solutions Networks shall apply inode limitation on all shared hosting servers starting from February 2014.
WHY IS THIS SETTING NEEDED?
This is to protect all the data of our clients on the hard disk as high inode usage on hard disk can cause serious problem such as data corruption and loss. Once the setting is applied, you will be able to view your inode usage on cPanel.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF MY INODE USAGE EXCEEDS THE LIMIT?
You will not be able to add new files or receive new emails. You website will face errors when trying to create new files.
There will be a grace period of 7 days for you to clear your inode once it hits the limit of 250,000.
1) Clear old files and emails to free up the inode.
2) Change hosting plan to Flexi Cloud Server or Dedicated Server.
Hosting Type No. Of Inodes
Shared hosting 250,000
Semi-Dedicated Server/ EBiz Cloud 500,000
Flexi Cloud Server 1,000,000
Dedicated Server No inode limitation. Its total inode usage depends on the file system of the server.
Thank you very much for your attention!
