As stated, both in our Terms of Services and in the Fair Use Policies Section of the present hosting knowledge base, if you choose to use the free hosting service, certain limits are to take place.

You can still create a fully functional website, using WordPress or any other CMS.

Although, as mentioned, there are some limitations of the service, probably the most important one is related to the bandwidth.

What is bandwidth?

Bandwidth is essentially web traffic. It refers to the amount of data that is being transferred between your website and your website visitors. The volume is measured in kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), and gigabytes (GB).

Where Can I See My Bandwidth Usage?

NB! The amount of data that you’ve been using is refreshed every month. Thus, if you have a small website that you can go on a few days without being online, you can simply wait until the end of the month, should you exceed the 5GB Bandwidth you have with AwardSpace’s Free Hosting.

On the other hand, if you really need your website to be online at all times, you might consider upgrading to a Premium Hosting Solution.

Although we’ve already covered the ins and outs of website statistics, here is a quick tutorial on how to find the amount of data, you’ve been using for the current month.

Step 1: Log in to your AwardSpace account

In order to see your bandwidth usage, the first thing you need to do is to log into your hosting control panel.

To do so, navigate to AwardSpace’s Login Page and submit the correct credentials.

Step 2: Check Your Bandwidth

Once you’ve entered the Hosting Control Panel, you can see the Website Statistics on the leftside of your screen.
