Web Space
All Web sites need space in which to store their files. If you are creating a single Web page, or a large, multi-page Web site, we have a package with the right amount of web space for your need. Our hosting packages provide increasing amounts of web space.

Here are some tips to help you determine how much web space you will need.

  • HTML pages are very small and require very little space.
  • Graphics which are optimized for the web are typically larger than HTML files, but are still relatively small.
  • Graphics from digital cameras can be quite large. If you are planning to create a photo album or store photographs, you'll want to choose an upgraded package with more space.
  • Audio and Music files (.mp3 for example) can be large as well. If you have these you will want to choose an upgraded package.

If you need to convert between Gigabytes (GB), Megabytes (MB), Kilobytes (KB), and Bytes here's a very basic comparison:

1000 bytes is approximately 1 Kilobyte (actually it's 1024, but we're keeping it simple here)
1000 KB is approximately 1 MB
1000 MB is approximately 1 GB

Here are some common files associated with Web sites and their average sizes. Small buttons and icons when compressed for the web can range from 5-10 KB. HTML averages 5-50 KB. Scripts (JavaScript and VBScript for example) tend to range from 5-50 KB. Audio and Video files will often be large, averaging between 1-10 MB (1,000-10,000 KB). PDF files, Doc files, and other popular formats range based on their content, but appear to average between 100 KB and 5 MB. Your files may vary.

**Note: File Size Limits restrict the size of individual files. Keep this in mind when choosing a hosting package.
