If the host limits this and is unwilling to increase, then there is not much you can do.

The point is not that they are not "unwilling"... they fixed a range of ratios that the clients have to follow. This is how works professional hosts. They are not giving anything "unlimited" because they would have to give permissions to a lot of things that are causing problems on most of the sites that are hosted by them... spam, spoil of resources, etc...

when you have specific needs for your own site, the suggestion is to negociate a commercial account, not a "mostly free" hosting... when you have near-to-free accounts, you have to consider that you will have near-to-no-permissions...

The server-wide maximum size is 10M. We cannot increase it any further.

Unwilling!

PS Increasing the max upload limit might affect performance, but has nothing to do with security or "problems".

This is a per-server setting... like i said, you can negociate to have your site on a different server, under different configurations... you have to pay for what you need... (i actually have my own hostgator account having the mailing limit (200 emails per hour) raised because i have negociated with them that i needed to send email all day long...)

and you are right, there is no security risk with bigger files... just a larger risk to have people uploading porn or pirated softwares... and this is against their policies... i suppose this is a way to avoid a part of it.

anyway, when are you in need to upload a 50 gigs file?!

Watch what you hostgator as they are a bit of a joke, there is a ded who works there called richard hes aprat with a cap P, the only dude worth working with is a dude called Ford the billing team if you ask for a refund take a week to reply then ask you if you would like to pump it into hosting, the support team replys are sometimes realy slow. You cant have vbseo running as they says you need a server for it. Normal forum runs fine with them here is my recorded server load with them i have 4 mods installed stats cyb rules auto reply bot force users to read

I tried them once and had the same problems... when I questioned it they simply said to ignore it. It meant nothing. Needless to say I got out before the 30 days and they did refund me what I had paid.

Host Gator is horrible. As soon as your site starts to get somewhat big, they'll throw the resource card on you and shut your site down with no forewarning, you'll just browse to your site and find it shut off. They shut my site off on me constantly for resource limits, I kept upgrading and was upgraded all the way up to semi-dedicated paying $75 a month to share a server that was ABSOLUTELY slower. I finally said screw them and left their shady company. Support is horrible, I also had a lot of down time too.

How large is your site? Mine has around 50-100 on at a time and has a ridiculously high server load (spikes to 20 =\) and they've given me no troubles.

Re: 10 mb limit
My mistake, didn't know you were talking about attaching to a vb post.

I am currently on 195 megabytes with them, what is 10M? Thanks.
10M/10MB refers to megabytes, but MiB does NOT refer to megabytes, they are different, read more on wikipedia:
