Accessing Bandwidth Info

Understanding Bandwidth

Bandwidth refers to the amount of data that can be transferred from your Website to the world in a given period of time. In the Web hosting industry, this time period usually is one month. We provide a generous amount of bandwidth, but if you go over this amount, then you end up paying an extra fee.

50 gigabytes of bandwidth is quite a bit. For example, if the total size of all the files on your website was 1 megabyte, if someone visited every page in the website they would use 1 megabyte of bandwidth. 1 gigabyte = 1000 megabytes, so you would be able to have 50,000 people visit every page on your site in a month.

Bandwidth becomes more of an issue if you have large files such as video or audio that people download.
