What does Disk Space Quota Mean?

Are you receiving a warning similar to “disk usage warning has nearly reached their disk quota” in your Hostgator account? You might need to increase your disk space allowances.

The disk space quota is the total amount of hard drive space allocated on the server for an account.

The disk space quota is usually set in a package that is assigned to the account when the account is created. Upgrading or downgrading the account to another package that has a different disk space quota will adjust the disk space quota automatically without having to go through the steps in this tutorial.

Steps to Adjusting Quota

  1. Login to WHM.
  2. Under the Account Functions section in the left column, click on Quota Modification.
  3. Select the domain or the user of the account.
  4. Click the Modify button.
  5. Enter the new value (in megabytes).
  6. Click the Save button.
