Hello there,

Welcome to the world of development and congratulations on setting up your website and space storage with DigitalOcean!

Based on your subscription of $5 per month, here’s a breakdown of what you get and how it relates to your query about storage space:

  1. Storage Allocation: With your current plan, you get 250 GiB (Gibibytes) of storage space. This is the total amount of data you can store in your DigitalOcean Space.

  2. Outbound Transfer: You are also allocated 1 TiB (Tebibyte) of outbound transfer per month. This refers to the data transferred from your Space to the internet or other locations.

  3. Additional Storage Costs: If you exceed your storage limit of 250 GiB, additional storage is charged at $0.02 per GiB. So, if you need more space, you can definitely use more, but it will incur additional costs.

  4. Additional Transfer Costs: Should you exceed the 1 TiB outbound transfer limit, any additional data transfer is billed at $0.01 per GiB.

As for needing “unlimited space Disk for upload,” while DigitalOcean Spaces provides scalable storage, you can increase your storage beyond 250 GiB, but it will come at the additional cost mentioned above. It’s important to plan and estimate your storage needs to manage costs effectively.

I hope this clarifies your storage options with DigitalOcean. If you have any more questions or need further assistance, feel free to ask!
