When to upgrade your hosting

From Imaginet FAQ

An email will be sent to your primary contact address as soon as your traffic allocation is reached, indicating that a surcharge of R0.19 per mb will apply for any additional traffic. Please see the table below which lists the hosting packages that are offered, their traffic allowances and the “break-even” point, being the point where an upgrade will become more cost effective than paying for excess traffic.

Hosting traffic can be monitored through your MyDot control panel, and packages can be upgraded through the control panel or by sending an email to info@imaginet.co.za. Upgrading your package will increase your traffic allowance, and if your traffic falls within the allocated allowance, no surcharge fee will apply. If you upgrade your package during the course of any month, your next invoice will include a “Price Difference” fee, being the difference in price between the previous package and the package that has been upgraded to. You can elect to upgrade your package at the start of the following month to avoid this fee and elect to pay for excess traffic instead.
