If you receive an email warning you that your hosting account is nearing its disk space limit, you will want to either delete content off of the server to free up some disk space or contact us for upgrade options.
The email will look similar to this:
The account with the username ‘testuser’ (domain.com), is running out of disk space.
Please remove some files from this account, or ask the administrator to increase your disk quota.
This account has used 97.07% (1553.19/1600.00 MB) of its allocated disk space.
The first place to check is to log into your Control Panel (cPanel) and click on the Disk Space Usage icon to see where most of your space is being used.
Often times, users will find that their mail folder (see below) contains a large amount of messages so they login to their webmail and delete the emails, yet the problem still persists!?!
The reason is, deleting the emails is only the first half of the step; you must also purge the deleted emails (this is the important step – akin to emptying the recycle bin), in order to free up the space.
