Expanded Usage Notifications

We've improved how and when we notify you that your account is reaching your included plan limits, such as origin images and bandwidth. You will receive emails and Dashboard messages beginning at 50% usage, and we will recommend how to proceed if you think you might reach your plan's limit. Please note, we reserve the right to disable your service if you significantly exceed your plan limits.
