Server Bandwidth and Network Bandwidth

The most necessary factor for every website is Bandwidth. Without Bandwidth, a site can’t exist. But, some of the users are still get confused with the term Bandwidth.  The word ‘Bandwidth’ is used mostly in networking and web hosting service provider companies. Though the same word is used it has different meanings depending on the service. In this article, we have explained the difference between the Server Bandwidth & Network Bandwidth.

At first, let’s start on Network Bandwidth.

Network Bandwidth

Generally, the bandwidth in terms of network or communication can be defined as the capacity in which the data is transferred. Here, the speed matters a lot. Most of the telecommunications used the term bandwidth. There, the bandwidth is majorly used for internet connections. The user can access anything online with the help of the internet. But, if there is a low bandwidth it causes a delay.

The speed in network bandwidth is expressed in terms of MB/s (MegaBytes per Second)

So, the bandwidth is simply the capacity of a network cable that can transfer the maximum amount of data. Everyone has got an idea about the network bandwidth and what it is. Now, let’s get on Server Bandwidth.

Server Bandwidth

The server bandwidth is different from the network bandwidth. And this term is used in most of the web hosting service provider companies. It’s nothing but, the amount of data can be transferred between the servers, sites and the users. Most of the websites use the bandwidth much because of the huge traffic to the site. Bandwidth in terms can be shown with each request and its file size. For example, if you have a plugin/theme which consists of many PHP, JS files with its own size for each. When a visitor/website admin access your website, where a request tends to retrieve such files with its own size from plugin/theme/CMS/other will be calculated in server bandwidth usages.

What is Bandwidth in Web Hosting

Bandwidth in terms of web hosting

Bandwidth in terms of web hosting:

We know, that most of the hosting companies provide bandwidth in their plans at a specific rate. Some companies offer unlimited bandwidth to their customers. Hence, before choosing a hosting plan, a person should know exactly what is bandwidth in terms of  web hosting.

Bandwidth in Web Hosting

So, What is bandwidth?

Bandwidth describes the amount of data that can be transferred between the users, site and servers. In other words, it can be said as the capacity of the connection between the user and server. It is expressed in terms of MB/s (Mega Bytes Per Second).But usually, the web hosting companies offer bandwidth in terms of GB/s (Giga Bytes Per Second).

To put it in a simple way, if you are allocated with 5 GB of bandwidth usage for a website and a user visits your website to click on an image. It creates a request for 10 KB (say), so if there are 10 clicks on same image, then it will be accounted for 100 KB in allocated 5 GB bandwidth for your website. Likewise, it varies based on the particular situation and process. In SeekaHost, we reset bandwidth at the start of every month, so the bandwidth resource will start from zero.

Network Bandwidth:

The performance of the website depends on a important factor called ‘Bandwidth’. In shared hosting, it depends on the network bandwidth of  a server. More bandwidth, results in easy accessing and faster data transfer of the website. If the bandwidth is limited, more visitors in your site makes the transfers slow.

Web hosting companies offers bandwidth depending on their hosting plans. Even if a hosting company provides unlimited bandwidth it depends on the three major components. They are:

  • Networks
  • Connections
  • Systems

Right. Now we know what is bandwidth in terms of web hosting.

There is another thing you have to know is that how much bandwidth needed for your website. This is the question arises on everyone while choosing a web hosting package.

You can estimate and calculate a website bandwidth in a simple way.

Bandwidth needed = Average Page views x Average Page size x Average daily visitors x Redundant factor x No. of days in a month.

If you allow the visitors to download files from your sites, the bandwidth can be calculated by,

Bandwidth needed = (Average Daily visitors x Average Page views x Average Page size) + (Average Daily file downloads x Average file size) x 31 x Fudge Factor.

Is there any other ways to reduce the bandwidth usage?

Yes. It’s possible. You can simply reduce the website bandwidth by designing a website with very less scripts. It reduces the webpage size. And also try to avoid the usage of images, videos and downloads in your website. Keep your plugins, themes and CMS up to date, so the old scripts used in these will not take higher resource.

Need, Compute and Choose!

Bandwidth-Usage-of-WebsiteWe all have recharged our phones right? Either we go for a specific plan or just opt for unlimited data so that we can send and receive data without any interruption.

Herein comes the role of ‘Bandwidth’. In simple terms, the volume of data that can traverse from one source to another within a specified time span is referred to as Bandwidth.

Importance of Bandwidth

It’s a well-known fact that a website is a vivid collection of graphics, images, texts, audio n video. When a visitor accesses your website, the entire web content needs to be transferred onto the user’s browser. More the number of users, more the load or traffic for that particular website. In such a case websites with low bandwidth can cut out a sorry figure if the content is not timely displayed to their users. Thus degrading the performance and reputation of the website. So an adequate amount of bandwidth can ensure the proper and smooth running of your website.

SeekaHost simplifies in a nutshell 3 important facts related to your Bandwidth (Need, Compute and Choose!)

  1. Need for high-level bandwidth

As signified earlier, more the bandwidth, more will be the data transfer. In order to tactfully handle and transfer your valuable website content across numerous people, one ought to choose a high range of bandwidth. Following are the thumbs up you’ll achieve:

  • Entire web content can be accessed
  • Prevention against website crash
  • Addition of more media content
  1. Computing actual bandwidth required

Websites that are startups, having limited content, will perform sufficiently well with the bandwidth provided by a simple hosting plan. Nevertheless, heavy traffic attracting websites need to watch over their hosting plans and be aware of computing the required bandwidth. Here we show you how to compute the bandwidth you require:

  • Identify the number of visitors per month (via WordPress/Google Analytics)
  • Find average page-views by the user ( via WordPress dashboard/Google Analytics)
  • Compute average webpage size of your website (via Pingdom tool)

Now, perform the final calculation: Website visitors/month x Average page-views x Average Web page-size

Tough Ugh! Let’s take an example, consider:

Website visitors/month – 5000, Average page-views – 4, Average Web page-size – 5 MB

So, 5000 x 4 x 5 = 100000 MB this means 100 GB per month

Once you have your bandwidth computed, you have a tentative idea about your needs. This makes the next step in choosing the hosting plan much clearer.

  1. Choosing the best hosting plan for the desired bandwidth

After having the computed bandwidth in your mind, opting out for a hosting plan that provides you more than your existing requirement will lay down additional space in case of some peak events. There are many web hosting plans offering different bandwidth.

Basically, there is 2 kind of bandwidth offered in the hosting plans:

  • Metered Bandwidth: which offers bounded or fixed bandwidth range. You don’t get even an additional byte than what is being specified.
  • Unmetered Bandwidth: this is a variable bandwidth type. You do get additional bytes (up to a certain limit) even if you exceed your bandwidth limit.

Though one can easily get the above discussed bandwidth in any of the hosting plans, one must simultaneously lookout for whether to go for shared hosting or VPS.

All said and done, even if you find you need a higher bandwidth or lower it, there is always an option SeekaHost which will guide you and recommend the best possible solution.
