Disk Storage Space -

Disk storage space refers to the amount of server disk storage specifically allocated to your account. This space is used to store your html files, graphics, audio clips, POP3 mail messages, .pdf files, and other files that make up your Web site. Each of our plans includes a specified allotment of disk storage space. You can purchase more disk space through your account's Control Panel.

Bandwidth -

Monthly data transfer, or bandwidth, is the amount of information that is transmitted to/from your Web space. Each time a picture or HTML page is viewed by a visitor, you upload data using FTP, or email is received it adds to your monthly data transfer. The average HIT is approximately 10k. This would mean that a transfer limit of 8.0 Gigabytes would allow 800,000 hits. (That's a lot!) You can monitor your monthly transfer in your Control Panel.

Multiple Websites -

This feature allows you to use your current web hosting account resources for additional websites (i.e. or for sub-domains (i.e. Some examples of additional websites might be:

  • 1. For your church

  • 3. Your own personal website
  • 4. For your kids baseball, soccer, or basketball team
  • 5. For a non-profit organization you are involved with
  • 6. Your new small business ventures
  • 7. Political websites, etc.

These websites share the same IP address, disk storage space, and bandwidth transfer of the main hosting account, but have their own distinct content, domain name, and email accounts. You can add additional domains right through your control panel.
