How to Decrease (Free) Inode Distribution in Hostgator ?

Discussion in 'Web Hosting' started by Padalda, Jul 11, 2013.

  1. #1
    Hello Guys,

    I'm using hosting services for Hostgator. I've purchased Shared hosting and I'm running its Business plan. I'm running 4 blogs on my hosting.
    SEMrush
    The inode distribution has reached upto 1,80,000 till now. And the inode distribution is limited to 2,50,000 in hostgator.

    How can I decrease the usage of inode distribution ? How can I free inode usage from my hosting ?

    Try to delete anything in your public_html that you don't use.

    I tried deleting useless files and directories. But, still its 1,80,000...

    Is there any hosting ....which is free from such limitations ?

    First of all, try to contact Hostgator support and ask them to help you with deleting the space ( they should do this per your request).

    Sometimes the usage stats in your control panel is not updated at once after you delete some files and you need to wait some time till it gets updated.

    I agree that perhaps their stats aren't updating but it also depends on if you actually deleted a lot of files. Perhaps you are still using more inodes than you've been allocated.

    I'm going to suggest that your best solution will be moving to a KVM/Xen based VPS which will give you unlimited inodes (only limited by the physical filesystem).
