Managing Disk Space


Your control panel allows you to monitor and manage your disk space usage. This document covers the following disk space management issues:

  
Summary Disk Usage

After you logged in to the control panel, you will see a Disk Usage bar in Control / Info area on the left below the traffic bar:

It shows how much FTP (web), mail and DB disk space all together you are using of your Disk Usage limit.
It shows:
a) the Last Day Usage
    - every 24 hours all servers (web, mail, MySQL, etc.) are scanned, and all actually used disk space is summarized to make your Summary Disk Usage for the last day;
b) the Avg (Average Usage) for the current disk usage cycle (one month length regardless of your billing period) of your Disk Usage Limit

Disk Usage Limit doesn't stop you from using more disk space. But if you go over it, you will be charged overlimit fee for it. Keep in mind that your hosting account will be suspended if you reach/exceed your Disk Usage Limit by over 120%. Before suspension, you would be usually notified by email of approaching your disk limit.

 

FTP or Disk Quota
