Site Usage provides details about the resources your site is using. This includes the amount of Web Space and Bandwidth your site is using, and how many form submissions you have received.
Bandwidth and form submissions reset monthly on the rest date shown in this section. Web space does not reset.
Each site comes with a specific amount of file storage space for things like photos, videos, documents, and other such files. You can delete files from your File Manager.
Tip: If you have deleted files from your account and your Web Storage meter is not updating, log off of your Webs account, then log back on. This should refresh the usage and allow you to upload files again.
Warning: If you delete files from your File Manager, they will not appear on your website any more. Make sure not to delete any files that you are still using on your website.
Bandwidth is the amount of upload/download space your site is allotted. Every time a visitor views a file or page they are using your site's bandwidth.
For example, if a visitor views a picture that is 100kb in size, that will use 100kb of your monthly bandwidth. Your bandwidth meter automatically resets every month.
The number of submissions sent through forms on your website. This meter also resets monthly.
