Can I Get Extra Bandwidth and Space?

Shared hosting

You will not need extra disk space and bandwidth as we do not limit these for Shared hosting accounts.


Reseller and VPS hosting

If you need more bandwidth or disk space, you can configure your account through your WHM.

To configure bandwidth or disk space in WHM:

  1. Log in to WHM.
  2. Go to the Modify an Account section by typing the keyword on the Search box on the left-side panel or at the top of the page.

  4. Select the cPanel account you want to update, then click on the Modify button.
    Tip: Another way to go to the Modify an Account section is through the List Accounts.
    1. Look for List Accounts using the Search box.

If you need more bandwidth or disk space than our highest plan offers, please purchase your hosting plan to accommodate your needs or upgrade to Dedicated hosting.

Dedicated hosting

Depending on the location of your dedicated server, a SAN may be ordered to achieve more disk space. Please understand that this cannot be transferred to another server.

All of HostGator's Dedicated hosting plans offer unmetered bandwidth. For more information, please read the following article:
