    For those of you on shared hosting accounts, how much disk space is your websites using? If your hosting company uses cPanel, you can get the info by logging into your cPanel and looking at the left hand side bar ("stats"). Just something I was wondering about :)

    I've got 4 sites: two over 100mb, one around 80mb and another that's <10mb.

    We've got a few sites, so we're looking at just under 8GB

    Small site with phpBB Forum @ 60MB

    A small website (about 12 pages) with a phpBB based discussion forum and a dozen users is taking about 60MB of space and five times that (300 MB) of monthly bandwidth. It grows about 2MB a month as the discussion forums gain posts.

    Needless to say, this is well below the cheapest "economy" plan offered.

    For a small forum and a PHP audio generator 50 MB. Database is around 20 MB extra. 70 MB total. The database figure includes my databases and the MySQL stuff too.

    Are we including the files that are hosted as well? I have well over 400GB in stored files from videos to pictures.

    The website [code with needed images] is only about 25MB at most.

    I am currently at 140mb but I just set it up in June and haven't had much time to update over the summer. It's about 75% photo galleries so I suspect that will grow a lot in the next few months.

    These are on a shared hosting account? I can't think of any shared host that let you eat that kinda space for personal files.

    ugh, GoDaddy is pissing me off. Time to repurpose my old dell :D Then it should be using the correct amount. Any one got a guide for a home website?

    Two things:

    1) What is GoDaddy failing to do or doing wrong?

    2) Watch out how much it costs to run an old PC 24/7!

    My old Dell E510 pulls just about 240 watts when it is running. At about 15 cents per KWh, keeping that PC on 24/7. That's about $315 of electricity a year, almost enough money to purchase a purpose built NAS box that is much more power efficient (1/10th the power) and much higher performance.

    My domains hosted with GoDaddy for free, and everytime I try to go to it, it redirects to their parked domain page. I checked my DNS and it says that its matched with the hosting and not parked, so I'm going to call them tomorrow and complain about it. Meh, With as many computers as I have going 24/7 1 more cant hurt much. I have a 450w PSU in the server and I will have my iMac and my old Dell Dimension 3000 running 24/7, and minus the iMac the electric bill isnt much. Its the Air Cond. part that kills the bill. Next time I come into some money, I plan on redoing the dell box with newer parts, and getting an mini-itx board to run the website off of. I am just pissed because it keeps going 302.
