How to Find cPanel Bandwidth Usage?

  1. Log in to cPanel: Open your web browser and navigate to your cPanel login page. This is typically accessed by entering your domain name followed by “/cpanel” (e.g., “yourdomain.com/cpanel”). Enter your username and password to log in.
  2. Access the Metrics Section: Once logged in, you’ll see various sections or icons representing different features of cPanel. Look for the section labeled “Metrics.” Depending on your cPanel theme, it might be located towards the bottom of the page. Click on the “Metrics” section to expand it.
  3. Find Bandwidth Usage: Within the “Metrics” section, you should see an option related to bandwidth usage. It might be labeled as “Bandwidth,” “Bandwidth Usage,” or something similar. Click on this option to access your bandwidth usage details.
  4. View Bandwidth Usage Summary: Upon clicking the bandwidth usage option, you’ll be directed to a page displaying a summary of your bandwidth usage for the current month. This summary typically includes data such as total bandwidth usage, data transfer limits, and remaining bandwidth allowance for the month.
  5. Explore Detailed Usage: If you need more detailed information, such as bandwidth usage breakdown by specific domains, subdomains, or services, look for additional options or filters within the bandwidth usage section. You might find options to view usage statistics for individual domains, subdomains, FTP accounts, email accounts, or databases.
  6. Customize Date Range (Optional): Some cPanel setups allow you to customize the date range for viewing bandwidth usage. If you need to check usage for a specific time period, look for options to adjust the date range accordingly.
  7. Analyze and Take Action: Review the bandwidth usage data to analyze your website’s traffic patterns and identify any areas of concern. If you’re nearing your bandwidth limit or experiencing unexpectedly high usage, consider optimizing your website’s content, implementing caching mechanisms, or upgrading your hosting plan to accommodate increased traffic.
  8. Logout: Once you’ve finished reviewing your bandwidth usage, it’s a good practice to log out of your cPanel account, especially if you’re using a shared computer or a public network.

By following these steps, you should be able to successfully find and analyze your cPanel bandwidth usage in detail.
