Bandwidth refers to the amount of data transferred between your website and its users within a specific period, usually measured in gigabytes (GB) per month. It includes all incoming and outgoing traffic, such as page views, downloads, and media streaming.

Higher bandwidth is essential for websites with large traffic or content-rich sites with high-resolution images, videos, or large files. Exceeding your bandwidth limit may result in additional charges or slowed performance.

When choosing a web hosting plan, consider your website’s current and future bandwidth requirements to ensure a smooth user experience and avoid unexpected costs.
