I recently switched from a Windows hosting to a Linux hosting operating system. I am using Ubuntu OS. I want to know how much disk space I am having on my package, which command to use?

Check the following commands in Linux to know your disk space usage:

df command
Shows the amount of disk space used and available on Linux file systems.
Code:
root@myvps1 [~]# df
Sample outputs
Code:
root@myvps1 [~]# df
Filesystem     1K-blocks     Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3       99926320 74325616  20586160  79% /
tmpfs            1474392        0   1474392   0% /dev/shm
/usr/tmpDSK      3792768    74980   3525124   3% /tmp

du command
Display the amount of disk space used by the specified files and for each subdirectory.

Excellent post Moose. Just to add a couple of other useful commands.

find / -size +5M

Will show you all files larger than 5MB, useful if your trying to track down whats eating space.
Also you can add the -h argument to the du and df commands for a more human readable output.
