How Much Disk Space and Bandwidth Do You Really Need?

Unlimited Disk Space?

Most websites use less than 500 MB of disk space, with each page taking up around 1 to 2 MB. It's strongly advised not to have pages larger than 2 MB, due to their long loading time, which leads to a bad user experience. Many web hosting providers will offer unlimited disk space, yet 2 to 5 GB is more than enough for most individuals and small businesses.

 

Unlimited Bandwidth?

Don’t fall foul of those unlimited bandwidth offers, all web hosting providers have to pay for their bandwidth, it's a marketing strategy to justify the higher price of their plans. There is also a "hidden" limit, read their terms of use carefully. Instead, select a package that meets your real needs, you will significantly reduce your web hosting costs.
