Upload File Size Limit

Each file you upload to your Web site is restricted based on the individual file size limits allowed by your hosting package. This limit helps us fight abuse and allocate our technology to best accommodate each Web site and it's special needs. It also helps us manage bandwidth and keep our services fast, and accessible for you and your Web site visitors.

We offer packages to accommodate any Web site needs from a single simple Web page to a large multi-page Web site. Here are some tips to help you determine what your file size limits may need to be.

  • HTML pages are very small and should not normally exceed even the smallest limits.
  • Graphics which are optimized for the web are typically larger than HTML files, but are still relatively small.
  • Graphics 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 higher limits.
  • Audio and Music files (.mp3 for example) can be large as well. If you have these you will want to choose an upgraded package.
  • Small buttons and icons when compressed for the web can range from 5-10 KB. These are often saved as ".gif" files.
  • HTML averages 5-50 KB.
  • JavaScript and VBScript libraries are usually in the 5-50 KB range as well.
  • Audio and Video files will often be large, averaging 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. Your files may vary.

If you need to convert between Bytes, Kilobytes (KB), Megabytes (MB), and Gigabytes (GB) here's a very basic comparison:

  • 1000 bytes is approximately 1 KB1
  • 1000 KB is approximately 1 MB1
  • 1000 MB is approximately 1 GB1
