Small partition causing named issue

I just installed CPANEL on a clean and fresh freebsd box. The installation was ok, and i already created 2 accounts. But i can't reach websites through the domain names. First, i have suspected a named missconfiguration. But after opened a ticket, cpanel support team told me : "Your root partition is too small (86% used), so there are no inodes free for the system to do anything. This is likely causing your named issues".
I asked my data center to increase the root partition but they refused, cause they don't provide any customization on their servers.
So, the only thing that i could do to fix that issue, is to move some files and directories from root patition to the home partition and symbolic link from the default location. That's what i did.
Now, my partition root is only 42% used, but still can't get my domain names working.
I have pointed them correctly, no problem with that, and named is shown as running normaly.

Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a 2.9G 1.1G 1.6G 42% /
devfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /dev
/dev/ad0s1d 33G 1.9G 28G 6% /home
procfs 4.0K 4.0K 0B 100% /proc
devfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /var/named/dev

Is there any idea to fix that please ?

Thank you very much for your precious help and sorry for my poor english :)
