I have a client that is taking up a good amount of bandwidth. I don't think it's their fault though as they don't have a lot of content on their site. I'm not sure what is causing the bandwidth spike though. I was wondering if anyone knows how to tell what is eating up the bandwidth? They're going through 10G of bandwidth in like 10 days with only about 200k worth of data on their site.
So I'm stumped lol.
I'm on a linux/cpanel dedicated server. Let me know if you need any other info.
Check if this is the hotlinking problem i.e if hotlinking is disabled for that account.
HotLink protection prevents other websites from directly linking to files (as specified below) on your website. Other sites will still be able to link to any file type that you don't specify below (ie. html files). An example of hotlinking would be using a <img> tag to display an image from your site from somewhere else on the net. The end result is that the other site is stealing your bandwidth. You should ensure that all sites that you wish to allow direct links from are in the list below. This system attempts add all sites it knows you own to the list, however you may need to add others.
