Overview and management of shared resources

The interface allows you to see an overview of the overall resources of your shared hosting accounts. You can also manage the resources allocated to each account and request additional resources as needed.

The PlanetHoster Glossary contains explanations on multiple topics and can be consulted to clarify certain terms

Note : The term “V2” means “Version 2”.

Resource Pool

The resource pool reflects the distribution of resources allocated to all your accounts:

  • CPU is the ratio between the number of microprocessor cores requested at a given time by all accounts and the maximum number of cores of the hosting.
  • Memory is the ratio of RAM memory in GB currently used by accounts to the maximum amount of memory in The World .
  • Disk I/O is the ratio of the number of I/O operations in MB/s (when running a combination of read and write tests at a given time) for all accounts to the maximum number of I/O operations.

Note : Account creation requires a minimum of 1 CPU / 1GB RAM / 1 MB IO/s.
