Web Hosting - Quota Allocation and Resource Usage

Initial disk space is allocated according to the Service Level of your account. Additional quota allocation is available to customers who require more disk space.

The allocation for each service level includes equal amounts for test and production.  e.g. A Gold level account with 25 GB will include 25 GB for the test environment and 25 GB for production.

NOTE: MySQL databases included in the total of the filesystem.

Additional Quota Options

If you are a Silver, Gold, or Platinum service level customer, you can request quota allocation in addition to that allotted by your service level.  All customers enjoy enterprise storage

We can add storage on the base rate of $5 /1GB/ per year

If a customer requires large volume pricing, we can engage with the storage team and work out a sliding storage rate base on the larger volumes, or we can provide advice about other available options.
