What is bandwidth
Bandwidth is the amount of data transferred between the server and
the client and visa versa.
As an example, for a simple web page with one medium sized graphic and a
few blocks of text, about 2 kilobytes of text and maybe 50 kilobytes of
image data are transferred.
This means that if this page were accessed on the server 38460 times,
you would use 2 gigabytes of bandwidth. It could be pulled up 96154
times before you used up 5 gigabytes.
This is obviously simplified. Email counts as transfer also and counts
against bandwidth in both directions. And if you put up a 1 megabyte
file (music,PDF,graphic,etc.) for people to download, you could only
download it about 2000 times within 2 gigabytes.
Our plans offer varying amounts of bandwidth to accommodate the need you
anticipate for your site
