Allocated and Consumed Resources

If you are subscribed to a number of service plans at once, then you have several subscriptions. For each subscription, the following types of allocated resources are listed in Plesk at the Account section > Resources:

  • Disk space. This is the total amount of disk space allocated to your account with subscription. This amount includes all data related to your websites, email accounts, applications, backups, and log files.
  • Traffic. This is the total amount of data in megabytes that can be transferred monthly from all your websites.
  • Domains. This is the number of websites that can have separate second-level domain names, such as, for example, example.com.

    For information about setting up websites, refer to the sections Set Up Your First Website and Adding Domains.

  • Subdomains. This is the number of additional websites that can have third-level domain names, such as, for example, news.example.com.

    For information about setting up subdomains, refer to the section Adding Subdomains.

  • Domain aliases. This is the number of additional domain names that can be set up to point to one of your sites. For example, example.fr and example.de can both point to example.com.

    For information about setting up domain aliases, refer to the section Adding Domain Aliases.

  • Mailboxes. This is the number of mailboxes that can be created under all your websites.

    For information about creating mailboxes, refer to the chapter Mail.

  • Mailbox size. This is the amount of disk space that can be occupied by a mailbox.
  • Total mailboxes quota. This is the total amount of disk space that can be used by all mailboxes under all your domains. This option is available only on Windows-based customer accounts.
  • Mailing lists. This is the total number of mailing lists that can be set up under all your websites. Note that there are mailing lists and mail groups, which serve the same purpose, but are slightly different in functionality. Mailing lists support archiving and pre-moderation of messages, while mail groups can only be used for sending one message to a number of recipients at once.

    For information about setting up and using mailing lists, refer to the section Using Mailing Lists.

  • Additional FTP accounts. This is the number of FTP accounts that can be set up for accessing the subscription, in addition to the main FTP account that was created when your subscription was activated.

Databases are a standard means of organizing data storage that allows dynamic websites, web applications, and their users to store, search, and retrieve information.
