Policies on Unlimited Disk Space Plans and Defining Unlimited
Ganesha Hosting is committed in offering you the resources to grow and not charge you for resources such as disk space & bandwidth unless they are exploiting server resources or violating our FUP. Unlimited Plans does not mean you are able to use your hsoting in such a way that it negatively affects the server operation for illegal priposes, or or uses the resources in a way that affects our server stability/ performance or other users sharing the resources on the server.

To avoid too much consumption of resources by any single user Ganesha Hosting has placed limits on the amount of a server's resources that any given user may consume and the same shall be applicable to you as well. While these are limits, server abuse is not limited to these policies and is up to Ganesha Hosting ‘s discretion what constitutes server abuse.

On certain web hosting plans, Ganesha Hosting does not place limits on the amount of particular resources a single client may use. Ganesha Hosting makes every reasonable effort to provide clients with the disk space and bandwidth resources needed for their websites within the limitations of these Terms of Service. Ganesha Hosting monitors all servers via automated and non-automated methods to help ensure no single client adversely impacts other clients located on the same server.

Please note that shared hosting plans are for website hosting, and the storage of backups, file repositories, MP3s, mp4, zip, videos, photo archives, and similar is strictly prohibited. Violators of this policy may have their accounts terminated without refund.

Fair Usage Policy (FUP)
A Fair Usage Policy (FUP) is necessary to ensure our hsoting servcies are used fairly and our services operate reliably for all our customers. Resources provided on our hosting services are governed by this Fair Usage Policy. We reserve the right to impose reasonable limits to reduce your usage or pair you with other users utilizing the same or nearly the same amount of usage if we believe your excessive usage is afffecting Ganesha Hosting's services/systems or other users.

The client whom, in our reasonable opinion that have breached this FUP will be contacted by EMAIL and ask to upgrade his/her plan to a new dedicated server plan to reduce their excessive usage utilization. Ganesha Hosting may also suspend that client account prior to notify that client if that action is needed to bring stability to our systems/servers. Client suspensions prior to notification by Ganesha Hosting is rare and is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misue of our servers. What is deemed unappropriate or exsessive amount of resources will be determined by a number of factors including but not limited to our policies which includes the following:


  • Processes invoked by the web server, cron, shell or any other method should not exceed the following limitations:
  • Consume more than 128 MB of Ram
  • Utilize in excess of 15 seconds of CPU time.
  • Number of open files should not exceed 64.
  • Create core dumps.
  • Number of simultaneous processes should not exceed 10.
  • Execute a script/binary that forks in a way to create a fork bomb.
  • Programs may not run in the background or listen on a network port. If you require a bot, service or daemon, you should consider a dedicated server, as very few shared web hosts allow this type of program.
  • Simultaneous IIS/Apache connections may not exceed 50 from one individual source at any given time.
  • Web processes should not fork or spawn subprocesses.

Files and Directories
Inode Limits on our Shared & Reseller Reseller Hosting
An inode is a data structure used to keep information about a file on your hosting account. The number of inodes indicates the number of files and folders you have. This includes everything on your account, emails, files, folders, anything you store on the server.

There is currently an limit of 100,000 inodes on our shared accounts.

What is the 100,000 inode limit?
Shared and Reseller servers only allow 100,000 files per cPanel/websitepanel account This is a "hard limit" meaning that while the limit is reached, i.e. the 100,000 file threshold it will no longer be included in our weekly backups. Additionally, if the account happens to exceed 110,000 files then it will be in violation of our Terms of Service and can result in possible suspension.

The total number of inodes in an account may not exceed 100,000. Every file (a webpage, image, email, php file, directory, etc.) on your account uses up one (1) inode. This is not something we actively enforce and it will only become an issue if a client is causing problems for other people on the server. We will of course notify you if this is the case with a full explanation.

A directory cannot contain more than 3,000 immediate child files. This includes subdirectories themselves, but does not include files contained within those directories.

Database Restrictions at Ganesha Hosting
  • All users are restricted to 15 concurrent MySQL connections.
  • Database queries should not exceed 3,500 per hour.
  • Database changes (insert/update/delete) should not exceed 1,200 queries per hour.

  • The limit of of outbound mail is set to 25 recipients to maintain the server performance. You are allowed to send maximum 100/mails/hour from your domain.
  • POP connections are limited to 60 per hour.
  • SMTP connections (outbound email connections) are limited to 100 per hour per server account.
  • Mailing lists larger than 100 will require a semi dedicated, VPS, or dedicated server from us. Dividing one list into smaller parts to get around this limit is not allowed.
  • Any mailing list must be throttled so that it sends an email every 6 seconds at the very minimum. If the mailing list software you are using doesn't support throttling you must use something else. We do this as this keeps the server load from going very high and causing problems for other users. If you don't do this you will be suspended.
  • We do not allow you to send to a mailing list you were given or that you bought. This is spamming and we have zero tolerance for this.
  • No Direct SMTP mailing system scripts are permitted. Mail should be relayed through the local MTA.

Zero Tolerance Spam / Bulk Email Policy
We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail, any type of bulk emailing, mass emailing and spam. "Safe lists" and "double opt-in" will be treated as spam. Any user who sends out spam or any type of bulk emails or attempted to be sent to or through any of our servers or bounced back emails more than throttling limits to any of our servers, will have their account terminated immediately without prior notice and INR 1500 as penalty will be imposed to reseller or account owner. Sites advertised via SPAM (Spamvertised) may not be hosted on our servers. This provision includes, but is not limited to SPAM sent via fax, email, instant messaging, or usenet/newsgroups. No organization or entity listed in the ROKSO may be hosted on our servers. Any account which results in our IP space being blacklisted will be immediately suspended and/or terminated and INR 4000 as penalty will be imposed to reseller or account owner. Ganesha Hosting reserves the right to require changes or disable as necessary any web site, account, database, or other component that does not comply with its established policies, or to make any such modifications in an emergency at its sole discretion. Ganesha Hosting reserves the right to charge the holder of the account used to send any unsolicited e-mail a clean up fee. This cost of the clean up fee is entirely at the discretion of Ganesha Hosting.

If you send Spam or Bulk Email, your account will be closed. If a client you host in your account sends Spam or Bulk Email, your client's site will be immediately and permanently closed. If extreme cases such as you disagree to comply our policy and proceed to legal implications then your account will also be closed. We do not and will not tolerate Spam or Bulk Email. It is your responsibility to make sure your clients realize that Spam or Bulk Email is not and will not be tolerated. Spam or Bulk Email is a waste of our network and system resources, and we are completely intolerant of anybody who sends or attempts to send Spam or Bulk Email.

If a spammer or bulk email sender is putting uptime or performance at risk by flogging the email services with spam or bulk email, we have every legal right to receive payment from the spam or bulk email sender or the company represented within the spam or bulk email to cover the cost of the services rendered. This policy applies equally to Ganesha Hosting customers and non-Ganesha Hosting customers. Ganesha Hosting reserves the right to block incoming email from any remote SMTP relay at any time for any reason. If a remote SMTP relay is misconfigured, spammers or bulk email sender will often exploit the remote relay to send thousands (sometimes millions. of spams. If a spammer or bulk email sender is abusing a remote SMTP relay to mail bomb domains at Ganesha Hosting , Ganesha Hosting will immediately block the IP of the SMTP relay that the spammer or bulk email sender is abusing. Ganesha Hosting also subscribes to multiple RBLs (real-time blocking lists. to automatically block known open SMTP relays and known spamming relays. While this policy dramatically reduces the amount of spam or bulk email sent to Ganesha Hosting , this may inadvertently block some legitimate email.
