When I looked at the usage statistics for my customers I was pretty surprised! Most of them are barely using any resources they bought when I expected them to at least use a few hundred megabytes. In reality most of my customers are using <100MB. How about you guys?

Depends on the recourses you gave them.
If you give them 100gb disk space and 1000gb bandwidth for a personal website then they will never reach that limit.

But yes most clients never use their recourses. The most common is <1gb disk space and <10gb bandwidth for a personal website

Yes it is true that most people don't use all the resources.

It seems 10% use 80+% of their resources. The other 90% use minimal amounts.

Depends really, some hardly use any, then we have some dedicated clients who have gameservers and use a lot.

SHOUTcast is another heavy one.

People rarely use ALL the resources, but for us we are constantly having to up our network capacity, that is the big one + power.

We see a fair number clients using close to 100% of their allocated resources, but probably more than 50% use somewhere around 10%.

Obviously depends on the type of clients, and the resources offered in each plan

A quick glance through the stats/resources for one of our brands

9% are using < 25%
17% of clients are using 25 - 50%
62% of clients are using 50 - 75%
8% of clients are using 75% - 100%
5% of clients are using > 100%
of resources allocated to their plan

I would say it all depends on what type of sites you are hosting , some clients will use a lot of bandwidth and some may use a lot of disk space for example if your hosting a lot of sites where they will get many views then they will use a lot of bandwidth, as on the other hand if you host clients that have big sites then they will use lots of disk space and so on.

So lucky, many customers using our services don't have many visitors. I can take care all of them easier. As normal, 25% cpu usage on 90seconds are allowed for shared server, but with cloudlinux (which we 're using), it just show error page and still access Cpanel as well. Cool!

My shared hosting clients often exceed the disk space , traffic, memory and Cpu limits.In this case they are sent a notification with a suggestion to stop exceeding the resources or moving their sites to a dedicated or VPS server instead.

This is an example of the server overload by one of the users:

This is what makes web hosting successful and why such concepts as overselling, offering huge and unlimited quota work. Not only is low usage the norm, but you will be amazed on how many customers are not even using your service. By using those underutilized services for additional signups (aka: overselling) you improve your bottomline and keep prices down.

Was thinking the same thing...

Maybe Art can edit the post and remove any content that violates the client's privacy.

@suppoB - Aside from the client not being very happy about this, it can also have legal ramifications as well.. Not to mention is just bad business.

What I don't get is if you see a server is coming to capacity then why not get another server and move the clients to make more room or lessen the impact on resources.
