Monitor your hosting traffic

Each hosting package has a monthly traffic allowance, which determines the amount of data that your domain can transfer to and from our servers. Hosting traffic is used when users visit your website, when you update your site, and when you send and receive emails using our servers. Exceeding your hosting allowance will not affect your hosted services; you will simply be billed a surcharge of R0.19 per 1MB additional traffic. It is therefore often more cost-effective to upgrade your hosting package if you exceed your monthly allowance.

Each hosting package also has a specific storage space limit. If you reach your storage limit, you will no longer be able to uload new content to your hosting package until you have removed old files. You do of course of have the option of upgrading your hosting package at any time, to increase the storage available. Stored emails do not contribute to hosting storage used.
