As you evaluate
potential web hosting
services, you will undoubtedly run
across the term “bandwidth.”
It is important to know your web host’s
bandwidth offering and as equally
important to know the bandwidth your
website will require.
Bandwidth refers to the amount of
data that website visitors can download
from a website. You can get an estimate
of the amount of bandwidth your website
will require if you know how large
your pages will be and how many people
you anticipate viewing your website
on a daily or monthly basis. The most
practical way to determine just how
much bandwidth your website will
need is to ask your web host to help
you estimate your need based on that
If your website goes over its monthly
bandwidth limit, you will need to
buy more. Careful preplanning will
eliminate getting into this sticky
situation. Do not choose a web hosting
company that offers too little bandwidth.
Bandwidth offered by 10 of the top
ranked web hosts range from 200 GB
to 6,000 GB. One GB (or gigabyte)
equals 1,024 megabytes.
If you want to avoid the risk of
going over a monthly bandwidth limit,
be on the lookout for a web host that
offers unlimited, or unmetered, bandwidth.
When the sky’s the limit, you
know you will never run out of appropriate
bandwidth! With affordable
web hosting packages tailored
to all budgets, you will be able to
find the amount of bandwidth you need
at an affordable price!
