I’ve been thinking about the bandwidth usage of my other blog and I realized that in the near future, it’s bandwidth usage will become higher so I tried to look at the other plans that my current webhost, HostGator. I discovered that the 3rd plan, Swamp, offers unlimited bandwidth and I’m wondering. Is that really feasible?
I’m just asking this question because bandwidth, just like disk space, memory usage, coal, and gasoline (more examples) are exhaustible resources. They require servers and connections in order to run. I’m not really familiar with the technicalities on how they provide bandwidth but as far as I can understand, I don’t think it’s an unlimited resource.
Well, not all websites or blogs are bandwidth extensive so they won’t use that much bandwidth anyway. So are they hoping that those blogs won’t exhaust their resources?
As of now, my bandwidth usage is about 2-3 gb per day and I’m assuming that it will grow higher due to my other blog. Perhaps if I reach 50% of my bandwidth capacity, it’s time to talk to HostGator support to ask more about their unlimited bandwidth plans.
How about your webhost? Do they offer unlimited bandwidth too? I heard that dreamhost increases your space and bandwidth every week?
