    Know How Much Hosting Space and Bandwidth You Need - Defining Bandwidth


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    What Does “Bandwidth” Mean?

    Bandwidth refers to the amount of data that can be transmitted in a fixed amount of time. The “data transfer rate” is the speed with which data can be transmitted from one device to another. Data rates are often measured in megabits (million bits) or megabytes (million bytes) per second. These are usually abbreviated as Mbps and Mbps, respectively.

    Bits and Bytes

    8 bits = 1 byte
    1,024 bytes = 1 kilobyte (Kb)
    1,024 kilobytes (Kb) = 1 megabyte (mb or meg)
    1,024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte (gb or gig)

    How Much Bandwidth Do I Need?

    To determine how much bandwidth you need, estimate the file size of each web page, and then multiply it by the number of pages on your web site.

    Multiply this figure by the number of the number of page views you expect per month from your site.

    For example, if your web page consists of two 15Kb images and 3Kb of html, you would have 33Kb of data for that page. Now multiply this by the number of page views you expect to have per month (e.g. 100,000 per month). This would mean 3.3Gb of data needs to be transferred per month for that page.

    Now recalculate this number for each page, and you’ll know approximately how much bandwidth your entire site requires.
