What is Summary Disk Space?
At Gibbon Hosting Disk space usage is calculated on the basis
of Summary Disk Space. This is the total amount of space
you can use across our servers. It is inclusive of web
space (for your website files), mail space and database
space. This space is based on average usage and not
allocation. Every 24 hours, our system calculates how
much total data you are storing on our servers (web
+ e-mail + database). At the end of a 30 day month,
it would have 30 readings. The average of these 30 readings
would be taken and that would be your actual summary
disk space usage for that month.

of your mail box on our servers. So if you download
your e-mail frequently, you e-mail usage will be next
