                                           The Explosion Of Web Hosting Bandwidth
                                                                 By Russ Blanc



   I want to be the one to tell you that the web hosting industry is experiencing an explosion with
regards to web hosting bandwidth. I begin with the very commonly used term in the web hosting
industry `Bandwidth'. For the benefit of those how do not understand this term, below you will find a
definition:

- The amount of data that can be transmitted in a fixed amount of time. For digital devices, the
bandwidth is usually expressed in bits per second (bps) or bytes per second. For analog devices, the
bandwidth is expressed in cycles per second, or Hertz (Hz).

From the web hosting point of view, bandwidth is the amount of traffic that is allowed to occur between
a web site and the rest of the internet for a particular server (or host). The amount of bandwidth a web
hosting company can provide is determined by their network connections, both internal to their
information center and external to the public internet.

Every time someone visits you web site or downloads something from your web site, a certain amount
of bandwidth is consumed. Normally every website owner is allotted a specific quantity of bandwidth
per month (or monthly limit) which is usually measured in GB.

If there are a lot of people trying to download from a single website or from different websites hosted
on the same host, there may be occasions when somebody will be required to wait because the
bandwidth limitation of the particular host is being used at full capacity.

Nowadays, we are seeing bigger and bigger websites with several thousand pages, plenty of audio,
video and downloadable files which have led to a bandwidth explosion. Online gaming sites are very
popular and require huge amounts of bandwidth. Multimedia sites in general require bigger bandwidth
and will continue to do so. Plenty of research is going on all over the world to find methods of reducing
bandwidth consumption, and at the same time, increase the available bandwidth.

To make a simple calculation of the bandwidth consumption, let's assume the following example. If you
have put up a single page website which is 75KB in size and suppose ten people come to your site on
an average every day, then your monthly bandwidth consumption will be =75*10*31 = 23,250KB or
23MB. But chances are you have a multi-page website, and so the average page size and average

page views per day are to be used for calculation purposes. Not to mention your site probably includes
images and offers downloads and so the bandwidth consumption increases.

Web Hosting providers such as Lunarpages Web Hosting offer as much as 3,500GB of Bandwidth. A
basic web hosting package seems to get around 3,500GB of bandwidth among many of the web
hosting providers out there right now.

Is bandwidth something that is available in abundance? The answer is NO. There are a lot of technical
and practical limitations to this.One prominent factor being the limitations in the availability of
telecommunication channels and infrastructure to carry this heavy traffic to various parts of the globe.
Without a significant improvement on the infrastructure front, we can't expect to resolve the bandwidth
problem soon enough.

                                  Unlimited Bandwidth Hosting - Your Ultimate Guide
                                                               By Danny Ng



Unlimited bandwidth hosting is something that you need to be very cautious of. While there are some
large companies that do a great job at providing it, many others fail and are unable to help their
customers recover. It is extremely important that you do your research with any company that offers
unlimited bandwidth hosting.

 When you are dealing with an unlimited bandwidth hosting company, you should ask what kind of
bandwidth you are getting. While this may seem like a stupid question, there are different kinds and
speeds of bandwidth that are available. Many of the lower cost companies provide lower cost
bandwidth. This lower cost bandwidth takes longer to resolve your website to your computer. Also,
while the server may have a 100 MBPS connection at the data center, this does not mean that your
unlimited bandwidth is being given the same speedy treatment.

 When you are shopping for a host that offers unlimited bandwidth, another thing you need to look at
very closely is the hosting companies website. Professional companies will have a website that is
designed with high quality graphics and more. If you are being offered unlimited bandwidth by
someone who has a horrible web site, chances are that it is not really unlimited bandwidth after all.
Your unlimited bandwidth may also not be truly unlimited. There are web hosts that offer large
quantities of bandwidth, such as one terabyte of bandwidth, and when a customer hits that limit, their
account is then suspended until the next month. Purchasing one of these reseller accounts can be one
of the worst ideas, unless you like having a website that has trouble staying online and has a long lag
time.

 Unlimited bandwidth has to come out of someones pocket. While the cost of bandwidth is dropping
rapidly, it is not dropping so fast as to be free. If you are being offered unlimited bandwidth, you need
to do some research to determine if the hosting company is a legitimate group of people, or if they are
just trying to scam you out of some money. Companies that have unlimited bandwidth also often
overload their servers. This means that you might be on a server with ten thousand other websites,
when with a different host, you might only be on a server with one thousand websites. While you still
get unlimited bandwidth, the loading process is slowed down significantly.

 When you are using your unlimited bandwidth, you may have your account terminated due to
violations of an upline providers terms of service. That means that you could be out of hosting for days
or weeks while you try to get your website restored on another web host. Having unlimited bandwidth
hosting is not all that great. While you are given a large amount of bandwidth, most websites do not
need unlimited bandwidth. You are much better off finding a hosting plan that offers a smaller amount
of bandwidth and more stable uptime. That way, you will be able to enjoy your hosting and bandwidth
without worrying about your website becoming inaccessible.
