Extra Bandwidth charges
All of our accounts come with generous bandwidth allotments. It is

under your plan. You do not need to worry that your site will be

Please note that actual bandwidth includes traffic that is not measured
by the tool in the control panel. The numbers you see there only include

mail or other traffic.

specifed. We discount bandwidth for those exceeding 20GB total for the
month, and purchases are made in larger blocks.
