My InfinityFree account (if0_3) for memeticle.com has been temporarily suspended due to hitting Entry Process limits. I understand that the suspension is for 24 hours, and my account will be automatically reactivated.
I didn’t have a backup of my data, and I want to ensure that my files will still be intact after the reactivation. Could someone shed light on whether data loss occurs during this suspension?
Also, if there are any additional steps or recommendations to prevent hitting these limits in the future, I would greatly appreciate the advice.
That wouldn’t happen with this type of suspension. With others like permanent or inactivity, it can happen. If your website does not receive any visitors for 20-60 days, your account will be deactivated and you will have roughly a month to reactivate your account with several emails informing you. On the other hand, with permanent suspensions, it depends on what you violated.
You can also try to enable “I’m Under Attack” mode first to try and reduce the traffic. You can also setup IP Access rules so only traffic from your IP address is allowed, and everything else is blocked. Removing the A and CNAME is a last resort.
The ones for your website. So that’s the A or CNAME record for your base domain, and for the www subdomain.
This will take down your website, but it should allow it to keep working so you have some opportunity to fix things. Or at least get a backup.
I’m using the theme “BuddyX” And all plugins that I use are:

rtMedia for WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress
Send Users Email
Wbcom Designs - BuddyPress Activity Filter
WP 2FA - Two-factor authentication for WordPress
That’s a lot of WordPress plugins, including some that are known not to work well on free hosting on their own because of how much resources they use. I would advise temporarily disabling access to your site through Cloudflare the way @KangJL suggested, and then downsizing to only plugins that are absolutely necessary.
Alternatively if you feel you need that many plugins, you can try upgrading to premium hosting which has much higher resource limits.
They don’t list a specific inode limit (though you might be able to ask them) but the problem you’re experiencing has nothing do to with inodes. Reaching the inode limit doesn’t suspend you. You were suspended for hitting the entry process limit.
You shouldn’t have to buy a new domain since you already have one. Simply select that you’re using an already existing one. When your account is set up you can contact iFastNet and have them migrate the contents of your free account to your premium one.
