Disk Space

All Web sites need somewhere to store their files. If you are creating a single Web page, or a large, multi-page Web site, we have a package with the right amount of web space for your need. Our hosting packages provide increasing amounts of web space.

How much web space do I need?

When deciding how much server storage you need you can think about what you are planning to do with the website. For example, the basic HTML pages are very small and require very little space. Graphics which are optimized for the web are typically larger than HTML files, but are still relatively small. These are usually GIF or JPG files. Images from digital cameras can be quite large. If you are planning to create a photo album or store photographs, you'll want to choose an upgraded package with more space. If you are looking to have audio and music, these files can be large as well. Video files will take up the most room on your website.

How big are my files?

Small buttons and icons, when compressed for the web can range from 5-10 KB. These are often saved as GIF files. HTML file on averages are about 5-50KB. Audio and video files will often be quite large. They can average between 500 KB to 3 GB. PDF files, Word processor files, and other popular formats range based on their content, but appear to average between 100 KB and 5 MB.

Different Hosting Plans have different limitations on size of individual files. File Size Limits restrict the size of individual files. Keep this in mind when choosing a hosting package.
