When ordering a hosting plan, you have a number of choices: 24 Mb, 120 Mb, 240 Mb, 600 Mb, 1.2 Gb, 2.4 Gb, 6 Gb, 10 Gb, 20 Gb etc. What do you really need?

  • 24 Mb is for websites with mainly text and few pictures.
  • 120 Mb is required for WordPress and plugins.
  • 240 Mb is needed when you have more images.
  • 600 Mb is usually needed for ecommerce websites with a large catalogue of products and pictures.
  • 1.2 Gb and above plans come with unlimited monthly traffic, which may be needed by large websites when they become popular.
  • If you need more space than our published plans, just ask. We have tailored plans to suit several clients.

When you order hosting, you don’t need to allow for future growth. Your plan can be upgraded at any time to cater for expansion or higher traffic. We get automatic warnings when you are approaching your quota.

If you find that you are occupying more space even though you are not adding any pages to your website:

  • Check that you are not leaving email on the server. (Untick this in Mail or Outlook).
  • Check the Log files of visits to the site. These can grow over time and you don’t really need to keep more than the recent log..
  • Check that you haven’t kept a lot of WordPress themes that you were only trying.
