Resource Limits

Your Website has a maximum amount of resources it can use. This makes sure no single account on a shared hosting server impacts other customers' experiences.

CPU (Accessible cores) 1 1 2 2
Physical Memory/RAM (MB) 256 512 1,024 2,048

Entry Processes
(Concurrent connections)
10 100 125 150
Files (Inodes) 50,000 250,000 250,000 250,000

We define each of these resources and how they affect your account in How do each of cPanel's resources affect my Website?1

Which level of resources your account provides by default depends on its tier.

Tier Resource Level
Free Trial Level 02
Economy Level 1
Deluxe Level 1
Ultimate Level 2
