This really is my first publish and i'm very a new comer to building websites. I'm thinking about creating a commercial website and aspire to attract many site visitors. My real question is this: Basically begin hosting my website on shared server and discover that my website has become an excessive amount of a drain on me financially by groing through the bandwidth limit, can one transfer my website to some devoted server?

Thanks ahead of time for the help!!
You actually can.

Things i would do inside your situation is locate an account on the shared server that provides you 10-15 Gigs monthly or even more. Don't choose an "unlimited bandwidth" account, you'll be sorry.

I believe it will lead you a long time to talk about 10-15 Gigs, that's a great deal.

And to create a transition even simpler, select a host which has shared servers and devoted servers, then should you review your bandwidth limit, the host can certainly change you against one server to a different.

And the other idea is always to select a host that sells extra bandwidth for around $5/Gig, that's an excellent cost, then should you review the limit, you will not go bankrupt.

Best of luck
Just help. I have lately been informed concerning the whole "unlimited bandwidth scam". I suppose my Mother was right: Whether it sounds too good to be real it's always.

The issues you'll probably encounter because the visitors to your website develops tend to be more than a rise in costs. Eventually, you'd likely hit a place where "excessive" cpu usage might cause your bank account to become disabled. If you use a lot more than some cpu cycles, to the stage where it's a hindrance with other accounts on a single shared server, many hosts will disable your bank account. The things they call mistreating assets might be simply sudden unpredicted development in recognition of the site.

Some hosts have shared servers in which you convey more assets open to you because the quantity of accounts discussing that server is a lot more limited compared to 100s on the typical shared server.

Should you become so terrible in which you exceed that, a devoted server is what you should need.

Pricier to save cash while you grow, though. All these measures is much more costly than the usual fundamental shared server account. However, they are doing offer the benefit of permitting your bank account to stay active, together with some performance gains with every upgrade.

However, as you are planning for a commercial website, your earnings should increase too, therefore it should allow you to afford each upgrade.

The number of hits is 10-15G for any 30k page?

Initially published by fibroptikl:
The number of hits is 10-15G for any 30k page?
listed here are the mathematical details:

1 GB = 1024 Megabytes


1 Megabytes = 1024 KB

now, as you are transforming GB to KB, let's begin calculating by discovering the number of KB equal 1 GB.

1 GB = 1024 Megabytes


1024 Megabytes = 1024 KB X 1024 KB = 1048576 KB

thus, through the above equation, now that we know that 1 GB = 1048576 KB


10 GB = 1048576 KB X 10 = 10485760 KB


15 GB = 1048576 KB X 15 = 15728640 KB

if your page on your site is 30 KB in dimensions, then simply just divide to discover the amount of page sights for bandwidth consumed in GB.


10 GB / 30 KB = 10485760 KB / 30 KB = 349525 hits.


15 GB / 30 KB = 15728640 KB / 30 KB = 524288 hits.

hope these equations help !!!

though these information are very simple really, i'd suggest saving or printing this publish for individuals who hate maths !!! ... to ensure that they are able to utilize it later on for calculating hits versus. bandwidth consumed for pages on their own personal websites.

Observe that this equations in Students (excellent) publish don't include any images you can utilize in your 30k page. If you have any images, add how big the look(s) to 30k and divide with that new number.

Chuck Fox
Thanks Chuck, for pointing this essential aspect that we didn't remember to say !

To grow further on which Chuck properly stated...

something else:

the quality of the HTML page doesn't range from the dimensions of images the embedded Web coding will download.

quite simply, when the actual quality of the HTML page is 30 KB, which Web coding includes "x" quantity of images... you'd clearly need to add some sum total from the file dimensions of these images.

therefore, the equation to calculate the right bandwidth consumed with a HTML page with images incorporated could be:

Quality of HTML page + Sum Total of all of the File Dimensions of all of the images (that are incorporated within the code of the identical HTML page) = Total Bandwidth consumed with this HTML page
