What Is An Inode In Web Hosting?

You may be new in web hosting and come across the term inode. What is an inode in web hosting?

An Inode, in layman's term usually equals
one file
one folder
one email
Sometimes, one file may consists of more than one inode because of its large size.

An Inode, in a technical term is short for index node.

In Unix-based file systems, an inode is considered to be a data structure that represents a single file system object.

The inode space is used to “track” the files stored on the hard disk. The inode entries store metadata about each file, directory or object, but only points to these structures rather than storing the data.

Each entry is 128 bytes in size.

Below are some of the Inode Limits imposed by popular web hosting companies.

All of those mentioned below are for the cheapest shared hosting plan.



Namecheap

300,000 inodes for its cheapest plan.

600,000 inodes for its business plan.

Once your hosting account exceeds 150,000, it gets excluded from automatic server backup system.

Eliminate Your Fears And Doubts About Adsense

You are all aware that AdSense is a free, simple way to earn money by displaying targeted ads next to your online content.

With AdSense, you can show relevant and engaging ads to your site visitors and even customize the look and feel of ads to match your website.

Some of you may now have an adsense account, congratulations, please take care and abide by its policy.

Some of you perhaps fear adsense. You opted to join a different ad network. You read a lot of negative and arbitrary articles against it.

Eliminate your fears. Adsense is not arbitrary.

If you commit a minor violation for instance, it will not close or shut your site immediately. Instead, it will issue a warning and you will be notified through the email address you provided during the sign-up process so it is important to open your email account everyday for any update.

When you receive a warning from adsense, read carefully the reason for the warning and fix it.

The issues are stated in the email letter.

Resource Limit Is Reached What To Do?

So finally, Your resource limit is reached and your web host warned you to upgrade your hosting plan to a higher hosting tier or to reduce your resource usage.

You were surprised right? You subscribed to a shared web hosting plan of your present web host based on its very convincing advertisement like free domain for life, unlimited space/storage and unlimited bandwidth.

Your web host promised unlimited space and unlimited bandwidth but now requires you to upgrade or to reduce your usage because your web hosting resource limit is reached.

What will you do? If I am similarly situated as you, where my web host tells me that my web hosting  resource limit is reached, I will look for a web host that offers more space and offers more bandwidth.

You may ask, How will I do that when almost all the web hosting providers in the world advertise their shared hosting plans to be unlimited in space/storage or to be unlimited in bandwidth.

The truth is that nothing is unlimited.

The real limitatio…
