allowance for the month, you must either upgrade your account or purchase
additional bandwidth to cover your account bandwidth usage. If you choose
additional bandwidth, you must purchase in 1 GB increments and you must
purchase enough to cover the remaining term of your hosting account. All
bandwidth/traffic/diskspace amounts are measured in MBytes/GBytes.
