How much disk space is my site using?

This interface displays information about how you use your account's disk space, and all of your home directory's subdirectories. It also helps you manage your disk space quota, because it displays files and directories that use large amounts of hard disk space.

There are two ways to view your disk space usage. 

Via the our Website

1. Choose My Services from the menu above (if you can't see it, click here to login).

 

2. Click View Details next to the domain you want to access.

You will then see what your current disk space usage is. 

 

Via the cPanel 

First Log into cPanel and click on the Disk Usage feature under the Files section.

This interface displays information about how you use your disk space. It can also help you manage your disk space quota, because it indicates files and directories that use large amounts of hard disk space.

The Disk Space Usage feature lists all of the subdirectories contained within your home directory. You can click any of the listed directories to open the appropriate subdirectory in the File Manager feature. This function allows you to view specific disk usage information about individual files and directories contained within the subdirectory.

NOTE: The Disk Space Usage feature does not display disk usage information for individual files contained within your home directory.

 

This feature also displays disk space usage summaries for: 

  • Files contained within your home directory

  • Files in hidden subdirectories

  • Mailing lists in Mailman

  • Files not contained within your home directory (see Other Usage bar) 

 

NOTE: The bars in the graph represent disk usage figures relative to the largest directory, not a fixed scale.

Due to the nature of storing files electronically, most files occupy slightly more disk space than their actual size. For example, a 300 byte file may occupy 4 KB of actual disk space. As a result, you may find some discrepancies between data in the File Manager feature in cPanel and the Disk Space Usage feature.

The disk space usage information contained in this feature does not indicate how much space the directory itself uses. It only displays disk usage information about the directory's contents. Typically, directories themselves occupy a negligible amount of disk space. The figures contained in the Disk Space Usage feature may not reflect recent changes in your account's disk space.
