Ok so i have to admit it..i have no idea what bandwidth is :D I mean..i think i know a little bit on this subject, but i read some articles over the internet and i am even more confused than at the beginning.

So here is my idea of bandwidth.. If you have a hosting that offers you 10mb of band a month and you have on your website a 1mb picture, if 10 users come to your site the bandwidth will be done and the 11th user will not see the picture. Is this right? Or is this the most stupid thing that one can say?:D

Help me out here guys :)

are you kidding?

if you pay for unlimited bandwidth.. your site will not be out of order even if millions of people visit it and your total traffic reaches to the moon :P

yes i understand that..but if a hosting company offers you 10mb of band, that means that they need to have a hdd that has 10mb on it. So how could they have a hdd with unlimited space, in order to really give you unlimited bandwidth?

bandwith and disc space are different things… bandwidth does not specify the harddisc quota… and offering 10 mg of bandwidth does not mean they have total amount of 10 mb :D…

bandwidth = traffic (total loaded data from server by users.. so this is not about the size of web space…)

also by saying that most hosting companies assume that you will never hit that kind of bandwidth in the first place. if you did get to high they would call you and either stop hosting you or tell you to pay more because they would lose money. so its not really unlimited its just they give you enough that the average website wont run out.
