Bandwidth usage refers to the amount of data transferred between your website and its users. If you manage a website, it's crucial to keep an eye on your bandwidth usage to ensure optimal performance. This tutorial will guide you on how to view bandwidth usage in WHM (Web Host Manager).

Step 1: Log in to WHM

Start by accessing your WHM account. You'll need your WHM username and password for this step.

  • Open your preferred web browser.
  • Type in your WHM login URL. It usually looks like this: or https://IP:2087
  • Enter your WHM username and password, then click on the Login button.

Remember Your Login Details

Make sure to keep your WHM login details safe and private. Anyone with your username and password can make changes to your server.

Once you're logged in to WHM, you can check the bandwidth usage by following these steps:

  1. On the WHM dashboard, look for the search bar in the top-left corner.
  2. Type Bandwidth into the search bar and click on the Bandwidth Usage option that appears in the dropdown menu.

Step 3: View Bandwidth Usage

Now that you're at the Bandwidth Usage page, you can view the bandwidth usage details.

  • The Bandwidth Usage page displays a list of all your cPanel accounts and their respective bandwidth usage.
  • Each account is listed with the total bandwidth used for the current month. Bandwidth is measured in Megabytes (MB).

Understanding Bandwidth Usage

If an account is using too much bandwidth, it might slow down the performance of other websites on the same server. Regularly monitor your bandwidth usage to ensure all websites are running smoothly.


Monitoring bandwidth usage is an essential part of managing a server. It helps you identify any potential issues, such as an account consuming more bandwidth than expected. With WHM, you can easily view and manage your bandwidth usage, ensuring that your server stays in top shape.

Overusing Bandwidth

If an account consistently overuses its bandwidth limit, consider upgrading your hosting plan or optimizing the website to use less bandwidth. Overusage can result in additional charges or slower website performance.
