How To Ensure You Have Enough Bandwidth

Computing : Web Sites

It can be hard to work out how much bandwidth you need when you are starting a new site, and therefore how much to pay for with a host.

You don't want to pay over the odds, but then again you don't want to be stung with excessive charges if you go over your limit.

What to do?

You should try and estimate your traffic along these lines:

visitors x page views x page size x 30 = approximate monthly website transfer

Therefore say you think you will have 10 visitors a day, each making 10 page views of a 10kb page. This means you will need:
10 x 10 x 10 x 30 kb, or 30000kb of bandwidth a month, or 30MB or 0.03GB. This should be no problem with any basic package.

However, if it's a popular site, with 10,000 visitors a month each viewing ten pages, then you can see you will use 30,000MB or 30GB data transfer per month, in which case you should factor, and expect to pay, accordingly.
