Even more Space in 2012

To celebrate the New Year we decided to offer you more space for your precious media.

Our previous space upgrade levels have been increased without any additional cost for you as follows:

  • 5GB → 10GB
  • 15GB → 25GB
  • 25GB → 50GB
  • 50GB → 100GB
  • 100GB → 200GB

If you already subscribed to one or more of these upgrades ( yes, they are cumulative ), your total available space has been automatically updated as you can see in your Media Library.

If you don’t have a Space Upgrade yet, or need to add more, the new levels have been implemented in the Store section of your dashboard.

The Space Upgrade of course gives you more space to store your photos, and docs, but it also enables you to upload audio files, which makes it perfect for podcasts, MP3s, or any audio format.

We don’t even limit your bandwidth, and we’ll keep your files as long as your blog exists.

If you want to learn more about these upgrades, feel free to visit our space upgrades support page.

But wait, there’s more…

For those of you with a private blog, we lifted the previous limit of 35 users allowed to access it. From now on, you can add as many authorized users as you wish, from the Settings → Privacy section of the dashboard.

We hope you’ll enjoy these new features, and we wish you and your WordPress.com site all the best for 2012!

    Managing photos and media in general in a WordPress.com blog is a chore. When are we getting an update on those lines?

    Frig i wish i had a better opportunity to stay in school . . .Sometimes. To bad this happens to be one of the times i wish i did. Because this offer sounds great but to complicated for me. Sure am happy you are keeping our stuff though. Happy New Year WordPress.com, thank-you.

  37. fandypw

    It’s nice and great, thank you…

  38. barrykunz

    I’m relatively new to WordPress, but find it attractive, effective, and almost effortless, though I use the many tutorial videos available. For all that and the additional space I am grateful.

    More than that I’m heartened by the many positive comments in response to your announcement of ‘even more space in 2012.’ Pretty classy people compared to those who more than often leave heedless and thankless comments of response.

  39. happyboutique

    Thank you…

  40. Sandra Bell Kirchman

    Wow, thanks, that’s very generous of you!

  44. Dave Bonta

    This is terrific. I had already been talking up WordPress.com to anyone who would listen for highly affordable, super-dependable audio blogging and podcasting. Now I’ll be even more uninhibited in my touting of your freemium services. Thanks, and keep up the good work.

  45. shiborigirl

    those are indeed beautiful words, WordPress! thank you. You are indeed helping me make a living here.

  46. MyDaddyMyDaddy

  50. Thomas Milner

    Thanks WP!

  51. Balsillie & Associates

    I remember when we thought 1 GB was a lot of space lol, oh, did I just date myself?

  52. Imogen Shepard

    Ahh….thank you so very much WP! A great New Years presant :-)

  53. Jay F. Nelson

    Thanks to you, Paolo Belcastro! Much like a quality street drug, WordPress continues to lure me into greater addiction with new freebies, righteous widgets, and highly functional themes. As I explore every possible bell and whistle of my WordPress blogosphere, I grow helpless to resist the inevitable gravitational pull to your massive professional upgrade. Oh yes, I am your demographic, baby, and am damn proud to say so.


    Thank you WordPress

  55. myritingboard

    Do I use too much space? How would I know about this? Who can tell me if i really need to upgrade? Tks. thedoghouse

    • Paolo Belcastro

      That information is visible at the top of the Media section, in your dashboard. You will see there how much space your files use and how much remains available.

  56. Jennifer Wilcox

    What a wonderful gift to the WordPress world! Awesome!

  57. Krystle Lane

    This is why I love wordpress!

  58. kswonders

    Thank you WordPress
    a wonderfull gift !

  59. earthmaniebo

    Wow! Now I’m really tempted to buy a space upgrade. :)

  60. El Santo

    Yesss! You’re not seeing it, but I”m totally doing a fist pump here.

  61. Amy

    Well this was unexpected! Thank you very much!

  62. LLewis

    “5GB → 10GB
    15GB → 25GB
    25GB → 50GB
    50GB → 100GB
    100GB → 200GB”

    So, what would be the cost for 12 GB, which falls between the 10GB and 15GB price levels?

  63. Leslie

    I love this upgrade! Thank you so much, WP.

  64. Nonoy Avellanosa

    Great news For WordPress Users. Thanks a lot. WordPress Rocks!:-)

  65. Deb

    I noticed this as I was uploading photos and I thought I was seeing things! This is so awesome, thank you so much!

  66. Harbans

    It is nice of you to have increased the space. Really, this wonderful act of yours will spur the writers to write more and more to make wordpress.com
    number one.

  67. concrete canoe team

    Great news, thanks word press

  68. Venkata Ramani

    Good content addition! But if wordpress add value addition also for readers who opt for it, it will be nice and best! Choice can be asked by wordpress for every member.
    Wordpress should strive hard to arrange for some reveneue income by adding universal advts in the website of members and thus becoming one of the top website in the world!

    We will hail for the victory of WordPress in 2012 !

  78. Mr Ansu. Kromah

    I live in a country where there are no credit cards, my question is how can one buy more space where there are no credit cards. I live in Liberia where we only have western union. I highly appreciate the wordpress family for their wonderful services they continue to render the world. It is indeed a blessing to me, my friends and my country at large. Thank you wordpress.
