What Is the 100k/200k Inode Limit? Print

  • inodes, limit
  • 0

Shared and Reseller servers only allow 100,000 inodes per cPanel. This is a soft limit, and you will still be able to upload files when this limit is reached.

However, once the account passes the 100,000 inode threshold, it will no longer be included in our weekly backups. If the account exceeds 200,000 inodes, it will violate our Acceptable Use Policy and may be flagged for review and/or suspension.

Inode violations can include:

  • Creation and deletion of large numbers of files regularly.
  • Causing file system damage.
  • Exceeding 200,000 inodes.

For good reasons, we can increase or remove this limit.
