    My bandwidth usage has jumped significantly and I suspect theft. What data provided by cPanel can help me identify where the bandwidth is going so I can take action? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.:(

    Thank you.
    Can you direct me to the particular stats in awstats that are most likely to help?

    Click Awstats > domain name in question (if you have several listed here) > under referers section left menu, Refering Sites. Above that in the Navigation section, Files Type will give you views.

    That should show enough details to be able to indentify a bit more of whats going on.

    If you have a lot of images or media you think are being linked to, try Bandwidth Leech Protection. It prevents external sources from embedding specified file types from your site in their sites.
