How do I contact my domain admin to add more storage space?

How do I contact Google to make my site be able to have a larger storage capacity so I can upload more images? Can I take my free site and make it a paid site and add more storage capacity for images? I am a teacher and I need to do this asap, but I can't figure out how to contact google regarding this. My site is rrobinsonTUHSArts.
Thanks

Google does not offer the option to increase the size of a Google Site but you can do various things:

Hi, another option is to clean out the files in your site. Most often, Google Sites owners upload files with no thought to file size. Over time, these eat up precious site space. 

Try the following but do one step at a time and check your site's storage afterward to see if it decreases.
  1. remove (download) or delete unused and duplicate files
  2. replace very large files with smaller sized files
  3. look at the content on your site and see if some of it can be deleted

Once you clean up your files, start using best practices to keep the problem from happening again.
  1. clean out your files on a regular basis
  2. when replacing images, use the "replace" feature that actually replaces one image with another
    1. the usual practice is to delete an image, upload another and forget to delete the old one
    2. FYI, deleting an image from a page does not delete it from Google Sites (delete from the Attachments page)
  3. give files proper names like home_page1.jpg, for example, so you can find them when you need them
  4. presize large image files to around 800 x 600 or small ones to 400 x 300, for example, before uploading
  5. empty your "deleted items" folder (trash) often
    1. Google Sites does this for you on a regular basis but if your web space is really used up, this might free up some

Google Sites has a kind -of file manager in the Attachments page. Get to know it. It is your friend and will help you keep your website space under control.
  1. gear icon, top right corner of any page
  2. manage site
  3. attachments


If you are absolutely short of time, search for the files that are the largest and deal with them first. That will free of the most space in the least amount of time.
