If you are managing a website or are planning to design a website then figuring out the right disk space and bandwidth requirements for your web site is fundamental. Here are some tips to help you out in this.
First off, let us clarify what is web space. Put simply, web hosting space or web space is the space for memory storage on a web server which serves web page requests coming from client software and programs such as Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera web browsers and others. It is used for email hosting, website hosting fie storage and others, hosting websites, email hosting, file storage and others.
There are a lot of hosting plans that have services offering just a few megabytes to a lot of gigabytes. Make sure that you have determined the size of your website which would depend on the html files, sound files, video files, image files and media files of your website. A relatively small website which has around five pages containing ten images could have a size of less than 200 kilobytes with efficient coding.
On the other hand, bandwidth would be the amount of data, which is transferred from and then back to a web server. As a page is displayed, some data are being downloaded from the server. Data transfer also transpires as a user reads or sends email messages, accesses ftp accounts and other website activities. Bandwidth is usually bundled with the disk space provided by the web hosting plan. For example, 1 gigabyte of web space with 10 gigabytes bandwidth.
