About Storage and Bandwidth

2 min read
Your storage and bandwidth requirements are important factors to keep in mind to make sure that your website runs as smoothly as possible.
How much storage or bandwidth you need depends on a few things, like the content you display on your site, and how many people visit your site.
For example, if your site contains a lot of video content or high-quality images, you may have higher storage requirements. If your site receives a lot of traffic, you may have higher bandwidth requirements. 
In this article, learn more about: 

Storage

Storage refers to how much content (including images and files uploaded to your site) you can store on our servers.
You might want to upgrade your site if you have a lot of video or high-grade image content. 
Tip:
You can check how much storage you're using in the Manage Storage section of your site dashboard.

Bandwidth

Bandwidth determines how much data your visitors can view at a certain time. Wix sites can handle thousands of visitors at the same time.
The amount of bandwidth allowed, or data that can transfer at one time, depends on your site's Premium plan. Bandwidth upgrades ensure that visitors have a fluid experience when using your website. 
If your site experiences a high amount of traffic, you can upgrade to a Premium plan at any time (see below). All Premium plans include more bandwidth.
Tip:
We'll let you know if your free site comes close to exceeding its data transfer limits.

Increasing storage and bandwidth

Free Wix sites come with (up to) 500MB of storage and (up to) 500MB bandwidth. 
You can increase your site's storage and bandwidth at any time by upgrading to one of our Premium plans.
