What is Data Transfer / Bandwidth?

Answer:

Bandwidth refers to the amount of data that is allowed to be transferred to and from our servers. Our plans are designed to have more than enough bandwidth than a normal website would need so that you do not need to be concerned about running out of bandwidth or overage charges, that other web hosting companies charge. If you are still concerned about the bandwidth limits, consider this, if this page were viewed by 50,000 visitors, it would only use .024 GB of your bandwidth. Rest easy knowing that bandwidth concerns and overage charges are a thing of the past.
