How to check the bandwidth usage in your cPanel account

Bandwidth means the data transfer a website is allowed to do every month. Just like data transfer limits on internet connections given companies like Airtel, MTN, Glo Mobile etc, hosting plans too have data transfer limit which we hosting providers call bandwidth.

Bandwidth is calculated monthly. It is calculated on each page load and each visit on your website (any image or media file or html or css etc are counted in this).

It is totally dependent on traffic and size of files being downloaded from the server. Each page load or download is counted in this.

Every month Bandwidth is refreshed and counter starts from zero.
