Resource limits for cPanel Reseller Hosting

cPanel Reseller Hosting comes with two types of resources: XL limits and Standard limits.

XL packages have VPS-like resource pools; Sub Accounts on an XL package share the pool's resources, much like a VPS.

Standard (non-XL) packages do not have any resource pool; each individual Sub Account has preset amounts of resources.


Server Hardware

Reseller hosting packages are powered by high frequency CPU with up to 5.7 GHz turbo and high speed DDR5 memory.

Our 7950X single core is more than twice as fast as the E5 CPUs that other providers commonly use. Here is a comparison of single-core performance among our 7950X, 5950X, and other CPUs popularly used by other providers:



It is the number of files and folders each Sub Account can have. A cPanel account with newly installed WordPress uses about 3,000 Inodes.

  • A Sub Account can have a maximum of 250,000 Inodes.

  • A reseller account with 25 Sub Accounts can have 25 x 250,000 Inodes, but a single Sub Account cannot exceed 250,000 Inodes.

XL Limits

XL packages have VPS-like resources, and resellers can set the limits of their Sub Accounts from their reseller control panels.

  • The resources mentioned in an XL package are allocated to the entire reseller account.

    For example, if you have 6 GB RAM, the total RAM allocated to all your Sub Accounts is 6 GB.

  • Overselling is enabled. Only the actual usage counts towards the resource limit.

    If you have a reseller package with 6 GB RAM, you can set 10 GB or more to one or more Sub Accounts, but they won't be able to use more than 6 GB (your limit). The combined usage of all your Sub Accounts cannot exceed 6 GB (your limit).
