We allocate 400MB of disk space and 5GB of monthly bandwidth per site that you host with us, and allow you to use a "fair share" of CPU.

Most of the sites that our customers host with us remain within those limits. If your sites exceed those disk or bandwidth limits, our support team will increase your disk allocation to 800MB, and bandwidth allocation to 12GB at no extra charge.

However, if your site exceeds those increased allocations, then you'll need to optimize your site to use less resources, or find a more suitable provider for a larger or high traffic site.

Site Optimization

To reduce your site's disk, bandwidth and CPU usage, we recommend:
  • Installing hCaptcha to protect your login and comments page from brute force login attempts and spam comments
  • Disabling comments (reduces bandwidth from spam comments plus disk space used by those comments in the WordPress database)
  • Installing ShortPixel to optimize the images on your site
  • Disable access to xmlrpc.php via .htaccess rules (reduces bandwidth usage from brute force attempts)

Moving to Other Hosting Providers

If your site's traffic levels exceed what our service is designed for, we recommend services from the following providers:
