Checking Your Disk Usage

Every now and then you may wish to check how much disk space you are using. To do this, first login to your server using SSH. We recommend Windows users download PuTTY, a free SSH client.

Once you have logged in, type du -k at the prompt and hit enter. This will display the amount of disk space you are using. Typing du --help will show you some of the other options you may use, for example du -s will display a total size for you without first displaying the sizes of each individual file, and du -h will display the amount of disk space used in megabytes. You may combine these options, for example du -sh will display the amount of space you are using in megabytes without first displaying the size of each individual file, as shown below:

bash-2.04$ du -sh
15M
bash-2.04$
If you ever get to the point where you need more disk space, we charge just $2.00 per additional 1GB per month.. To order extra disk space please contact us at support.internetconnection.net. In your message specify your domain name and the amount of additional space you would like.
