    Web Hosting 101 - Bandwidth

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    Small business owners looking to take their business online will also need to consider transfer volume, which is also called bandwidth. Bandwidth determines how many users will be able to visit your site and how much data they'll be able to access.

    If a small business owner goes over their limit, they can face a very hefty bill from their web host. All hosts have a set amount of disk space and bandwidth that is included in the price of the plan you choose when deciding to sign with them. If, for some reason, you decide that you need more disk space or bandwidth, the host will charge you based on the additional disk space or bandwidth that you use.

    That being said, many of the big hosting companies offer unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth, but they usually charge more monthly than a smaller hosting company would.

    Before deciding on or signing with a hosting company, ask them if there are any restrictions with their unlimited offer. Just as a point of reference, it has been found that most small businesses use about 1GB in transfer volume per month, so keep that in mind.

    Finding a hosting company thatís right for you doesnít have to be difficult or overwhelming. True, the wealth of information available online can do more harm than good, but if you know what your business needs and what youíre looking for, the process can be pretty painless.
