What Happens If I Exceed My Assets Storage Limit?

Our goal is to make hosting your Craft site easy and hassle-free. If we just disabled your site willy-nilly that wouldn't feel very hassle-free. So we take a gentle approach to these things.

In the background we're always keeping an eye on how much you're using and we'll update your project's current storage use on its Plan page so you can keep track too.

If you have the Servd plugin installed a warning will also be displayed in the Craft Control Panel.

If you exceed your Assets Platform storage limit nothing will happen immediately - we'll just show you some warning messages.

If you continue to add files and exceed 150% of your storage allowance your ability to upload and edit files will be restricted, but existing files will still be viewable. If this happens we'll get a notification so that we can give you a hand to get things unlocked again.

What if I need to store more assets than my plan allows? #

Servd provides a few options if you need more storage:

  • You increase your storage using the "Additional Asset Platform Storage" addon.
  • You can upgrade your plan to a higher tier.
  • Or, you can use your own object storage solution, such as AWS S3 or GCS. Keep in mind that if you do use a 3rd party solution, you will not be able to make use of Servd's asset cloning and rollback functionality.

If none of those options feel good to you, then get in touch and we can figure something out.
