There's no need to worry about exceeding the allowed bandwidth. We will warn you if you are getting close to this limit. There are no consequences prior to the first warning.


Note: The unlimited bandwidth and storage options are intended for the very high traffic sites that have a high usage of media assets. In most cases, a site will not exceed the bandwidth and storage limitations.


In the future, we intend to add a counter which will enable users to check their bandwidth usage for themselves. We will notify our users once it's ready for use.

    How to see the total size of files against the allowed storage

    In site management, I expect to see the amount of space used against the 500Mb limit purchased in my premium account.  How do I do that?

    Bandwidth question

    Hi im looking at your offers, the 2GB bandwidth seems potentially low. What happens when the website has gone over the limit?

    Counter for storage and bandwidth

    You were planning to incorporate the capability to check the size of one's site (storage and bandwidth), is it now possible?

    Hi I am having problems with items that I have added to my online store. I took days to enter my inventory with details such as sizes, colors, description of accessories etc. A few days later there were items missing. I thought I did something wrong to I entered all over again making sure I save a few times before exiting. Well it happened again 2 days ago. I use google browser. How can I stop this from happening I would like to focus on selling what I have not spending my days entering my inventory over and over again….. VERY FRUSTRATING!!

      If you have selected to keep an inventory, remember that you must have items showing in-stock, if your stock is set to zero then it will not show in the store.


      Let us know how it went and we are here should you require further assistance.

      Many thanks, Barrios

    on a free account, is the bandwidth the amount of data at one time or is it amount of data in a month? will 500mb be used only when people are on it and once off will it go back to 500? ex 10 people are on, bandwidth goes down to 480, then they get off and no one is on there. will it stay at 480 or go back to 500. thank you

    Hi, I try to upload files to my blog (pdf) and I can upload files from some folders on my computer, but others are denied and I receive the message "storage service could not be reached".  At first I thought I had reached my maximum storage but was unable to find any info on how much space I have used.  Then I saw that I will be notified when my space is reaching the maximum.  To be on the safe side, I deleted a whole bunch of files, but this also did not resolve the issue.  

    All the files I upload are well under the size limit, and larger files from some folders upload while small folders won't upload.  I have no restrictions on my own folders.  Why won't my files upload???????  Help Please!

    Will I exceed my bandwidth?

    I currently have 1GB of bandwidth. Given my audience, It's possible that 5,000-6,000 people at one time will be viewing / using the site. I'm definitely not looking to spend more (but will if I absolutely have to) -- however, will this be enough bandwidth so the site doesn't crash and/or move really slowly for users?

      As you can see in this thread, there's no way for you to measure the capability of your site. Consider that if you will be about to overcome your limit, we will let you know, and you will be able to upgrade to a higher premium plan (if needed).

    If you keep telling people that they will be notified upon reaching their free limit...then is it safe to assume I have not reached my minimum free storage space limit yet?  I have no idea what package to buy because I do not know how large my template is currently.  And, if I AM near my limit, I do not know what package to buy because I do not know how much more I could add if I had more space because I don't know how much space things are taking up!!

    A promotion hangs on the viability of this template and if I do not have a better answer than "they'll let me know if it gets too big" then I'm going to be laughed at.  Can someone please provide an accurate answer for this????

      Unfortunately our storage system sends these notifications automatically.

      We and you have no way of seeing the capacity of storage used before this notification is sent.


      Please note that exceeding the limit will not prevent you from loading more data to your site, however, it will drastically effect your site's performance and loading time.


      Let us know if you require further assistance.

      I apologize for the inconvenience this is causing you.


      Going over your accounts media I can see you have 109 images, are you having issues with those or with the ones you have set on your site?


      If the content was lost from your site please try to revert it the a different saved version and let us know if you cannot find a version that holds the lost content.


      You can now find all of your backed-up versions in the Site History section in My Account.

      You can also overview of all edits and changes you have made to your saved and published website. It makes it easy for you to view, flag or restore to a prior version of your website at any point.


      To access your site history:

      1. From My Account, next to your site, click Manage & Edit Site.

      2. From the right of the page that opens, under Site Actions, click My Site History.

      Your site history page opens. 

      For step by step instructions click here.

      You can also create a duplicate copy of your site by going to  My Account , clicking  Manage & Edit Site  and then clicking  Duplicate Site . For more information, click  here .


      Awaiting your reply.

      All the best, Dean - Wix Team
