Is video hosting on Sinorbis free?
There's some video hosting included in the Sinorbis Pro and Digital Suite package. As part of your subscription, you're able to upload up to 5GB of video content to your file manager. It also includes 125GB of bandwidth each months. How many video plays you will be able to get from that depends on your view to play rate and how many videos you have on your Chinese website.
If you need more bandwidth to play your videos, this can be included in your subscription. Your account manager will be able to help you work out your requirements.
What happens if I go over my monthly bandwidth allowance?
You're able to check in on your bandwidth usage very easily through your Sinorbis file manager dashboard. You will also receive an email notification when you reach 50%, 75% and 100% of your monthly bandwidth allowance. You can then decide if you want to upgrade your video hosting plan or want to keep things as they are. If you decide not to upgrade your plan, the videos will stop playing for your website visitors until the bandwidth resets in the next month.
What is the benefit of hosting my video on Sinorbis over other video hosting platforms?
