How to limit bandwidth usage in WHM

This demo assumes you've already logged in to WebHost Manager.

Now let's learn about setting bandwidth limits for specific hosting accounts in your WHM.

Click the Account Functions link.

Then click Limit Bandwidth Usage.

A hosting account's bandwidth limit cannot be exceeded. When it's reached, the account will stop working until either:

1) The end of the month (When bandwidth usages are reset) or

2) The bandwidth limit is increased.

Every account in WHM already has a bandwidth limit, as it would have been set when the account was created.

Let's go ahead and check the bandwidth limit on one of the listed hosted accounts.

Click the Limit button.

Here we can see that the anotherdomain.com account has used 0 megabytes of bandwidth.

It has a bandwidth limit of 100,000 megabytes.

Let's go ahead and increase this account's bandwidth limit by typing in a new value here.

Then click Change.

That's it! The bandwidth limit for this account has been changed.

Now click View Bandwidth Usage.

From here you can see the bandwidth used by each individual account in WHM.

You can see the modified bandwidth we just set here.

The amount of bandwidth used is shown in this column.

We can click here to see how much bandwidth each account used last month.

Click Show Units in Megabytes, to show the bandwidth usages and limits in megabytes instead of gigabytes.

Bandwidth limits and usages are now shown in megabytes.

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to manage bandwidth limits for your hosting accounts and how to check current and past bandwidth usages.
