What is Bandwidth?
First, we have to know, What is Bandwidth? In computer networks, bandwidth is habitually used as a substitute for ‘data transfer rate’ the quantity of figures that can be approved from one point to another in a given time period. Infrequently, it’s spoken as bytes per second or Bps.
An internet connection modem that can works with the speed of 50,600 Bps has double the bandwidth of that modem that is able to work at 25,300 Bps.
For general explanation, a URL with a high bandwidth is one that can carry sufficient material to withstand the series of images in a video performance.
Make it More Simple:
- A bandwidth is a variety of frequencies within an assumed band, in specific period that used for spreading a signal.
- We can also say that this is a transmission volume of a PCs network or other telecommunication system.
- This is a data-broadcasting rate; the supreme quantity of info (bits/second) that can be conveyed with the use of a channel.
How much Bandwidth do you need?
To know how much bandwidth you need you have to answer the question by yourself.
- How big each page you are going to create on your site?
- How many people are going to visit your site monthly?
For this purpose, you need to, add the size or all images you are going to upload and the size of the page’s HTML files. Now multiply this number by the number of views you imagine for that page per month.
For example, 5*5k=25 images on the page and a 3k HTML file, now you have 28k of data on that page. Now multiply it by the probable page views/month it would be 100,000, and you get 2.8G of data to be moved that 30 days that specific page.
If you have more pages, on your site, you can calculate the data of every page and you will know around how much bandwidth your whole website requires.
