What is the difference between metered and unmetered servers?

Metered servers get a specific amount of bandwidth measured in GB per month.  Our servers include anywhere from 5TB to 20TB of bandwidth to use every month.  Overage of these amounts are then billed at $.05 per GB.  Metered servers can choose from 100Mbps, 1Gbps and 10Gbps ports.

Unmetered servers are not given a specific amount of GB bandwidth per month but are given a specific port size.  We offer 100Mbps, 1Gbps and 10Gbps unmetered ports.   Customers are free to use as much bandwidth as the purchased port can handle.  There is no threat of overage costs with an unmetered bandwidth plan because your usage is capped based on the port size you choose.  A 100Mbps unmetered port maxed out for an entire month would transmit roughly 33,000GB of bandwidth.  A 1Gbps port could transmit 330,000GB (or 330TB) of bandwidth if maxed out for an entire month.

Pricing for all bandwidth options can be found in our shopping cart for each server.
