Hosting Control Panel User Guide


 

Info/Control Area


This document introduces you to the main parts of the Account Info/Control area:

 

Account Settings

Account settings are listed at the top of the info/control area.

  • User: the name by which you are known to the hosting system. It's the same as your control panel login.
  • FTP Login: the login name you use when you upload your site to your home directory on the server.
  • Plan: the hosting plan you are subscribed to.
  • Billing period: the period of time you pay for your hosting account.
  • Domains: the sites you host in this account. For some hosting plans, you may have more than one domain in your account.

 

Total traffic

This is the total amount of data transferred to and from your account by Internet visitors and yourself from the beginning of the current billing month.

If you expect to run up more traffic than comes with your plan, it's a good idea to raise your traffic limit. To do so, click the second icon:

Total traffic limit is the amount of traffic you pay for in advance. It is charged as the recurrent fee. However:

  • if you fail to run up all your quota resource, you are not returned the payment for the unused quota;
  • if you exceed the quota, you are charged usage fee per gigabyte of the excess traffic.

You can always buy additional amount of the resource in advance if you anticipate your account will exceed the allocated limit before the end of current billing month.

The system will send you a notification email when you have used 90% of the traffic limit. Please do note that your account could be suspended if you exceed more 120% of allocated traffic limit.

Control Panel navigation is not included into the total traffic.

 

Disk Quota

This is the disk space you are actively using out of the disk space allocated to your account. There should always be several megabytes of slack (unused space) to ensure correct performance of statistics reporting utilities, such as Webalizer:

The system will send you a notification email when you have used 90% of the disk space limit. Please do note that your account could be suspended if you exceed more 120% of allocated disk space limit.

 

Resource Meter

Resource meter shows how much of your resources you have used, how much you have free, and how much you can have at most in this account:

  • Standard Domains - number of domains in this account
  • Subdomains - total number of subdomains in all domains of this account
  • Mailboxes - total number of mailboxes in all domains and subdomains of this account
  • Auto responders - total number of autoresponders in all mailboxes of this account
  • MySQL database - total number of MySQL databases in this account
  • PgSQL database - total number of PGSQL databases in this account

Depending on your hosting plan, you may not see all of the above resources on your account.

 

Change Language

This option will change all texts in the control panel, including labels, system notes, context online help, etc.
