    Hi there,

    This has changed, yes. There is no way to have truly unlimited storage on WordPress.com – we’ve always had this as a soft limit, and until very recently no one had ever exceeded that soft limit.

    In order to prevent abuse of our video upload feature in particular we have changed our policy to formalise this limit. With reasonable use of WordPress.com it’s very unlikely that you’ll need more space than that.

    Why not?

    Wouldn’t it be the case, as in the past, that we could only buy storage?

    Yes, you previously could buy additional storage, up to 200 GB, which is what the soft limit has always been.

    Why not more than this?

    Because statistically, we found that out of the millions and millions of sites that have been on WordPress.com over the years, less than a handful have reached that limit. So, it is safe number for 99.99% of our users.
