The Boomla Toolbar belongs to the user, not the website. On Pro and Business plans, it can be hidden from anonymous visitors (those currently not logged on to the Boomla Platform). It is always shown to users who are logged on to the platform.
It is also called deduplicated storage. If you have 2 copies of the same file, it will only count 1x towards your storage quota. This makes quite a difference for two reasons:
First, we keep a version history of your website. Typically, there is only a minor difference between versions. So if you have 100MB of images, and 100 versions of your website, your images still only consume 100MB of space, instead of 10000MB. Big difference.
Second, you will install packages to extend the capabilities of your website. These packages often have an uncompressed size of 1-2 GB, while only have a compressed size of around 10-100MB including documentation. (Techies: packages form a dependency tree, often having some base packages installed several times.)
A resource can be a HTML page, image, script, video, music, font, etc. Anything loaded via a URL is called a resource.
An external resource is resource loaded from another domain.
We measure the CPU usage in milliseconds while your website is serving requests and count it against your quota.
To give you an idea, a single page-load will typically consume around 100ms CPU time, including all referenced resources like images, style sheets, etc. In that scenario, 1 hour active CPU usage would allow you to serve 36000 page-loads, way above the needs of a typical website.
If you have a small site with little traffic, you can easily end up using only a few seconds each month. That's perfectly okay, you will not be billed.
Note that we may use server side caching techniques to make websites load faster.
