How to check homepage space usage

How homepage space usage is calculated

In order for your homepage to function properly, each file is assigned 4 Kilobytes of space to be used for indexing, directories, etc. Therefore, the amount of space used to host your homepage is in fact larger than the combined size of all your files.

Note: 1 Megabyte is equal to 1,024 Kilobytes.

From the 1st to the 15th of every month, Asahi Net measures the amount of disk space used, and charges accordingly for excess homepage space usage. If your homepage usage exceeds the amount of homepage space allocated to the Plan you are using, excess usage charges will be made at a rate of 189 yen (180 yen base) per 5MB unit of excess. You will receive a confirmation by e-mail of the amount of excess homepage space usage and the amount to be charged.

How to check the amount of space being used
