Managing Account Bandwidth in WHM

Reading Time: < 1 minuteAdjusting account bandwidth limits in WHM is very similar to the process used when editing an account in WHM. While you can adjust bandwidth limits via multiple locations, it’s usually best to use the modify account page. Changing the settings and limits of a cPanel account from WHM is a simple process and only takes a few moments.
  1. With WHM open (a) type ‘list’ into the search box, this will sort the menu options for you. Then (b) find and click “List Accounts”. manage-bandwidth-whm-pt1
  2. Now on the “List Accounts” page, (a) enter the domain, or username, into the search box . Then (b) click “Find”. manage-bandwidth-whm-pt2
  3. Select the account you want to adjust by clicking the “[+]” button. manage-bandwidth-whm-pt3
  4. In the expanded section, find and click the button labeled: “Modify Account”. manage-bandwidth-whm-pt4
  5. Now on the “Modify an Account Page”, you will find ‘Monthly Bandwidth Limit’ under “Resource Limits”. Adjust this limit as required. Modify an Account
  6. When you finish making changes click the “Save” button, found at the page end. manage-bandwidth-whm-pt6
  7. Depending on the server you may see a pop-up about “Package Conflict Resolution”. If this shows up when saving, you can select “Keep this account on package {package name}”. manage-bandwidth-whm-pt7
    Even though the text in WHM says “(not recommended)” this option is the least destructive. The other options may change packages that other accounts use.
