What is Bandwidth?
When we refer to bandwidth on our hosting plans, we are talking about the amount of data that can be transmitted over a designated period. In our case as a web hosting company this would be specified as a month.
The bandwidth measurements that you will hear will either normally be kbps (kilobites per second) or in Gb per month which is how we refer to it at cheap host.
There are many factors that will determine how much bandwidth you require to run your website efficiently, ut some of the key considerations are as follows:
- number of visitors you expect to get per hour/day/month
- what is your average page size – this is the weight of the average page including text, images and other media
- the average expected page views for each visitor
By combining the above you can make a good assumption of what you may need per month
It must be said though that it is always better to ‘allow for more‘ when making such calculations so that your website runs at its optimum speed and functions to it’s best
