Do you Really Need A Large Bandwidth for Your Site?
Most often than not, sites that use high bandwidth on these “unlimited” plans will eventually be disconnected and no refund will be given back. Usually, the web hosting company will claim that your website site did not follow its Acceptable Use Policy or Terms of Service.
The first time you are looking for web hosting services, you must make your best guess and check your usage carefully in your first few months. Here are some of the things to ponder:
- How many possible visitors will access your website?
- How many pages are available for access?
- How big are your graphics and HTML files?
Large audio or video files, software downloads, and files require more bandwidth. Flash sites use a large amount of bandwidth too. Virtual Reality (VR) and full-body and 3D audio / visual presentations require more bandwidth for everyone.
Do not fall into the trap of unlimited bandwidth that some companies offer you. Be wise and read through all features and limitations of the web hosting plan you will choose. Also, read How is Bandwidth stolen? to reduce your Bandwidth usage.
