Do You Need A Lot Of Bandwidth?
Bandwidth measures the volume of data transmitted over an interne
t connection. You have to know how much bandwidth you need while
choosing hosting plans.
Be careful when someone claims they provide unlimited bandwidth or
monthly transfer. Anyone claiming "Unlimited Bandwidth" is simply l
ying. There's no such thing as "Unlimited Bandwidth".
I’ve never seen any broadband company offering an internet connect
ion as "Unlimited Megabytes per Second." So, how could a web hosti
ng company, which normally doesn't even own its own access lines,
claims to customers that it will give them "Unlimited Bandwidth"?
Most of the time, high bandwidth sites on these "Unlimited" plans wil
l be disconnected, and no refund given. Normally, the web hosting com
pany will say that the site violated its Acceptable Use Policy or Ter
ms of Service.
Whenever you visit a site promoting "Unlimited Bandwidth" as one of t
he account features, be sure to visit the Acceptable Use Policy, or t
he Terms of Service. Read the fine text about the so-called "Unlimite
When you first look for web hosting services (those who state clearly
bandwidth offered), you have to make your best estimation and watch
your usage carefully in the first few months. Take these factors into
consideration while estimating.
**How many users will access your web site?
**How many pages to be access?
**How big are the graphic and HTML files?
Large audio/video files, computer programs, and file downloads requi
re more bandwidth. Flash web sites use tons of bandwidth. Virtual Re
ality (VR) and full-length three-dimensional audio/visual presentati
ons require the most bandwidth of all.
Though it is not accurate, but still gives you something to work with u
ntil your site has been online for a while and actual traffic statistic
s have been generated.
Don’t fall for the unlimited bandwidth trap that some companies throw
