Resource limits for DirectAdmin Reseller Hosting

The following resource limits apply to DirectAdmin Reseller Hosting. Reseller packages have VPS-like resources, and resellers can set the limits of their Sub Accounts from their reseller control panels.

  • The resources mentioned in a 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). At any point in time, the combined usage of all your Sub Accounts cannot exceed 6 GB (your limit).


It is the number of files and folders each Sub Account can have. A DirectAdmin 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 no Sub Account can have more than 250,000 Inodes.
