What is Disk Space and Bandwidth?
Disk space refers to the amount of hard disk space you have available to store web pages, photos, videos and other content on your website. Just how much disk space you have varies according to the membership plan you're subscribed to. At the low end, the Free plan includes 20 MB disk space; and at the high end, the Advanced plan includes 5 GB disk space.
Bandwidth refers to the amount of data that website visitors can download from your website in a month. Just how much bandwidth you have available varies according to the membership plan you're subscribed to. At the low end, the Free plan includes 1 GB bandwidth; and at the high end, the Advanced plan includes 1 TB bandwidth.
How much bandwidth you need is determined by size of your web pages and how much traffic your site receives. As an example, suppose your account's monthly bandwidth is set to 1 GB. Also suppose that the typical web page on your site contains 10 MB of content. Your website visitors would be able to download that page 100 times before you reached your bandwidth limit. (1,000 MB is equal to 1 GB).
See the Plan Comparison Chart to see how much disk space and bandwidth comes with each type of account.
Upgrading your disk space and bandwidth
To add disk space or bandwidth to your account, go to the Upgrades page.
How it works: If you want to add to previously purchased disk space or bandwidth, choose a new total amount from the drop down menus on the Upgrades page. For example, if you previously purchased 50MB of disk space, and you want 50MB more, select 100MB.
If you want to delete previously purchased disk space or bandwidth, choose a new total amount. For example, if you previously purchased 150 MB of disk space and want to reduce that amount by 50MB, select 100MB. If you want to delete all extra disk space or bandwidth from your paid plan, check No Extra Disk Space or No Extra Bandwidth. Doing so will cancel any previously purchased disk space or bandwidth.
If you do not wish to change the amount of previously purchased disk space or bandwidth, your current amount should be the selected drop down option. For example, if you previously purchased 50MB of disk space and do not wish to change your current level, you should leave the selection on 50MB.Upgrade your account
