What is Site Booster?
Site Booster, by Rochen, is a resource enhancement configuration which you can have added to any of your Rochen hosted websites on a Premium Web Hosting Plan. Site Booster is applied on a per site basis to individual cPanel accounts.
By default, all accounts within Rochen’s shared hosting environment are allocated 512MB of RAM, and 150,000 inodes.
If your website is running processes that require more than the allocated 512MB RAM then you may experience degraded performance. Performance degradation may include symptoms such as slow page load speed and possibly unavailability of your site due to timeouts. It can also impact your rankings with popular search engines, including Google.
If you exceed the 150,000 inode limit, then you will not be able to create any more files. High inodes usage can be due to factors such as a large site, lots of cache files or stored email messages.
These restrictions occur automatically because the resources are being throttled, to ensure that other sites – any others that you have – as well as anyone else’s, on the shared server are not affected.
We understand these symptoms can be frustrating, and we don’t want to see the success of your site impacted due to its resource usage.
To prevent that from happening we have a simple solution available, called Site Booster, which will significantly increase the available RAM for your site. Site Booster comes in two variants, offering either 1GB or 2GB of RAM, and can be applied within minutes with no downtime or server transfer required. We also have a third “Burst” option which also increases CPU resources and provides higher inodes too.
