Bandwidth Per Month

From Lunarpages Web Hosting Wiki

Is the bandwidth supplied enough?

It should be more than enough for a web site that is not excessive in size (amount of pages/large downloads) or daily traffic.

For example, to use more than 40GB of transfer/bandwidth your site would have to be receiving a large amount of visitors on a daily basis and/or have many pages that are being accessed and/or have large files being downloaded.

Every time one of your web pages is viewed by someone on the internet, the size of that page goes towards your bandwidth usage. Below is an example of how many times a page would have to be viewed to reach 40GB of transfer.

  • page size 30kb = 1,398,101 views
  • page size 40kb = 1,048,576 views
  • page size 50kb = 838,861 views
  • page size 60kb = 699,051 views

All activity on your account counts towards the bandwidth used for your account. This includes:

  • Emails incoming and outgoing (and attachments)
  • Uploading and downloading files (including page changes you upload)
  • Page views

It is possible to use much more bandwidth suddenly if your site is featured on a popular review site, you provide large, popular files for download, or other sites hotlink to your files.

You may track your bandwidth usage in your control panel (both cPanel and LPCP) by logging in and looking at the side menu.

If you are going over, you may upgrade to another plan. Email [].

You may also stop hotlinking by using Hotlink Protection in Cpanel and you can move, delete, or lower permissions on popular files permanently or temporarily.

Bandwidth automatically resets some time after 12am on the 1st of every month.
