    Can someone tell me what the real maximum account numbers are for:

    - e-mail accounts
    - e-mail forwards
    - e-mail aliases
    - add-on domains
    - subdomains
    - parked domains
    - ftp accounts

    That is, if I was to give one of my cPanel users unlimited everything, would he ever come up against a hard wall? I would assume that, even set to "unlimited," there's an integer cap for each of the above. Would 999 be a good guess, or is it something higher? Thanks!

    Definately higher than 999. I heard about someone who had a client that went crazy about subdomains and created near 10,000 of them.

    As far as I know there is no specific cap. It's pretty much limited only by what can be handled by the server, which of course does have a limit somewhere.

    Good to know, and thanks for the details! In general, it does make sense to limit numbers for all those features. It's just that I wouldn't want to promise unlimited to any of our clients when in fact there's a set limit out of my control. Thanks again.
