Changing Your Traffic Limit

Traffic limit is the gigabytes of transferred data you pre-pay for at the beginning of the billing period. Every month the system checks if you stay within the limit, and if you don't, it charges you for the excess. Then your traffic is reset.
Example: If your billing period is 2 months long and started on the 5th of October, the first billing month will end on the 5th of November, and your total traffic will be reset. However, if you change your total traffic limit on the 15th of November, your traffic will be reset and a new billing month will start.

Note: if you fail to run up all your quota resource, you are not returned the payment for the unused megabytes.

If you expect to run up more traffic than comes with your plan, it's a good idea to raise your traffic limit. To change the traffic limit:

  1. Select Quick Access in the Account menu.
  2. Click the Change icon next to Total traffic.
  3. Enter how much traffic you expect to run up throughout your billing period.

Changing Your Disk Quota

Disk quota is the total server disk space allocated to all your web sites. There should always be several megabytes of unused space in your account to ensure correct performance of statistics reporting utilities, such as Webalizer or Modlogan. Disk quota doesn't include mail and database quotas.

To get more web disk space:

  1. Select Quick Access in the Account menu.
  2. Enter how much disk space you would like to have.
