What Does "Unlimited" Mean?
The removal of any predetermined disk or bandwidth quotas. When a hosting plan is created, the web host has the option to set a disk and bandwidth quota, which would limit a plan to a predetermined rate. (such as 2GB disk space and 40GB bandwidth)
When you remove this quota, the plan no longer has any active limits, thus turning it into an 'unlimited' hosting plan.
Are There Soft Limits?
Yes, there are soft limitations in place for all of our hosting accounts.
Basic Plan: 1GB Disk, 40GB Bandwidth
Starter Plan: 1GB Disk, 40GB Bandwidth
Jester's Plan: 8GB Disk, 100GB Bandwidth
King's Plan: 25GB Disk, 300GB Bandwidth
Royal Plan: 50GB Disk, 800GB Bandwidth
What Will Happen If I Go Over My Soft Limit?
That depends mostly on the status of our network, as well as the size of your website. If we determine that the size of your website is too large for the plan, to a point where it prevents us from reliably offering higher level plans to our future paying customers, we will require that you upgrade to a more appropriate plan for your size.
If you are unable to upgrade to a higher tier of hosting, we will convert your Soft Limit into a Hard Limit.
Are There Hard Limits?
Yes, there are hard limitations, specifically relating to the hardware that your website is hosted on. When you order an unmetered hosting package, you're renting out website space on a shared dedicated server. This server has a hard drive, a processor and a few sticks of RAM, just like your home computer. (but slightly more powerful).
While there are no predetermined quotas in place for our unlimited hosting packages, you must still fit within the actual hardware of the server itself. Quite simply, you cannot go beyond what the physical hardware can provide.
In addition to that, some of our web hosting plans come with Hard Limits.
What Are The Hardware Limits?
Each individual web hosting account has its own set of hardware limits, otherwise known as "resource limits".
Basic Plan: 25% CPU, 256MB RAM
Eternal: 85% CPU, 750MB RAM
Starter Plan: 85% CPU, 750MB RAM
Jester’s Plan: 100% CPU, 1GB RAM
King’s Plan: 150% CPU, 3GB RAM
Royal Plan: 300% CPU, 6GB RAM
1 CPU Core = 100%
Beyond that, our server itself also has limitations, specifically in regards to the networking port (which limits the total bandwidth) as well as storage limits, like a hard drive, or an SSD.
Are There Inode Limits?
No, we do not enforce any inode restrictions, as inodes are an OS limitation, rather than a hardware limitation.
