Disk space & bandwidth limits.

Our Green Hosting plans provide many unlimited features as well as set quotas for disk space and bandwidth. Here they are explained.
 

Your Green Hosting account has both disk space and bandwidth quotas. You can see the resources allocated for your account within your hosting control panel. You can also view how much disk space and bandwidth you have used by logging in to your hosting control panel - See the 'Stats' box in the left sidebar.

Disk Space

The disk space allocated within your Green Hosting account is provided for both your website files and your e-mails.

You will receive an e-mail notification (to the e-mail address you gave when signing up for Green Hosting) to let you know that you are running out of disk space. Please do not ignore this message. If you reach your disk space limit you will not be able to log in to your hosting control panel, upload files or images to your website and you will not be able to receive e-mails to that account.

Please note that the disk space for e-mails is included in your overall hosting account disk space allocation. This is still the case even if you set your e-mail account size as larger than your overall hosting space allowance.

If you approach your disk space allocation you may wish to delete unwanted files or e-mails from your account (making sure you check the 'sent items' folder). Alternatively you may increase your disk space allowance. To do this please open a helpdesk support ticket.

E-mail Accounts and Disk Space

If you are likely to receive a number of e-mails or e-mails with attachments which will cause you to reach your disk space limit then you may decide to download your messages to a an e-mail client or forward them to another webmail service, with larger capacity. Please see our E-mail Support guides to find out more.

Bandwidth

Your hosting account has a monthly bandwidth allocation. This is the amount of traffic to your website.

If you are reaching your bandwitdth limit you will receive a warning e-mail at 80% capacity (to the e-mail address you gave when signing up for Green Hosting). Please do not ignore this message. If you reach your bandwidth limit your site will go offline until the bandwith limit is increased or until the new month when the allowance re-starts. Hitting your bandwidth limit also means you will not be able to upload more files or images to your website and you will not be able to use e-mails associated with that account.

If you are expecting a high number of visitors to your website or have added files which are likely to to use more bandwidth (such as videos) then keep a close eye on your bandwidth use. If you think you will need to increase your bandwidth allocation then please open a helpdesk support ticket.
