WordPress announced that it is giving people with WordPress.com blogs more space for storing media – at no additional cost.

The additional space can be used to store photos, documents, audio files etc.

Here’s how the plans are changing:

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

Pricing per year is now:

$19.97 for +10GB
$49.97 for +25GB
$89.97 for +50GB
$159.97 for +100GB
$289 for +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,” says Paolo Belcastro on the WordPress blog. “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.”

WordPress.com will store your files for as long as your blog exists, and will not limit bandwidth.

In addition to the extra storage, WordPress.com has taken off the limit (previously 35) for users allowed to access private blogs. You can now authorize as many people as you want.
