I have 6 pictures on my husband's website just so I could put them up here and at bitcointalk, etc...
Suddenly, I'm out of bandwidth? I have 20 gig / month, and I'm out of bandwidth? Have I been attacked? I've noticed that the crypto coin community can be quite mean, is it possible someone did something? I just can't imagine 20 gig were used up with 6 pictures that haven't been up a whole month!

How big are the pictures? It's possible if let's say the pic is 1MB and there's 20 thousand views of a page which has the picture on it. Everyone needs to download it at least once.

Using Darkcoin-qt acts as a full node. Currently there are no lite weight versions of the wallet.

When your wallet is open, multiple connections are made to download and sync the blockchain. When it shows 8 active connections in the bottom corner of your wallet, your sending and recieving data from 8 separate people simultaneously.

While your helping the network tremendously by running a full node, it probably isn't a good idea to let it run 24hrs a day if you have a bandwidth cap each month.

The control panel at the webhost likely has stats tools available for install, 99% of commodity webserververs are running CPanel so if that is the case login to the control panel and activate AWStats. Awstats will give you a break down of views, where they are coming from, whats using up the bandwidth.

I blew through my bandwidth in about a 10 day period running the Faucet :)

If neither of you are familiar with that, hit me up on IRC and we can do a remote sesh and I can walk you through it.

I don't think the problem is involving this website. I think it's @TanteStefana own ISP. Or it sounds like she's hosting something herself?

If each picture is 250kb and there is 6 then they equal a total of 1.5mb
20gb/1.5mb = 13,653 unique page views.
That's a ton! You should double check your bandwidth report with your hosting provider.

Also someone could be "hot linking" on your website.
