Bandwidth is a measure of how much data you or your visitors transfer in and out of our
server. It is measured in the number of gigabytes sent per month. Determining bandwidth
requirements in advance can be difficult. If you don't know what to expect, talk to us.
We can advise you on whether this is likely to be a problem or not. Usually there's no
problem unless you are serving large videos or music files.
Our server can compress web pages (using mod_deflate) so that your site loads faster
and consumes less bandwidth.
We allow your account to temporarily exceed its bandwidth limits for short periods
so that you may benefit from marketing campaigns or media coverage.
