Unsuspend an Account of Bandwidth Exceeders in WHM (Complete Guide)

Hello Everyone! Today, we are going to discuss about how to unsuspend an account of Bandwidth Exceeders. Here we are going to discuss about the unsuspending the accounts which have been suspended because they have exceeded the bandwidth limit. Along with that we will also discuss about how the system handles the bandwidth limits for any account, methods to remove these limitations, and how to unsuspend an account of Bandwidth Exceeders.

Let’s discuss about how the system handles the Bandwidth limits for any account:

Mostly the system automatically initiates temporary limits on accounts which exceed the monthly bandwidth limit at the same time the system automatically removes the limits at the beginning of every month, when that account no longer exceeds the limit.

Important Note:

The bandwidth limiting is only imposed on the account’s Apache services by the system. Still the users can access the FTP Mail, DAV services, even if that users’ account exceeds the monthly bandwidth limit. The following statements are true if the system forces the account limitations due to bandwidth limiting:

  1. The limitations are imposed only on those accounts which are accessed by the user via the http or https method.
  • In the WHMs’ “View Bandwidth Usage” interface you will find the “Disk Used” value exceeds the “Disk Limit” setting. Follow the below steps for accessing the “View Bandwidth Usage” interface:

Log in to the WHM >> you will see the WHMs’ home interface>> Navigate to the “Account Information” category >> then select “View Bandwidth Usage” interface.
