    Bandwidth per month

    Hi all

    Those people who have their school website hosted externally, can i ask how much bandwidth you are using every month? I have signed up for 30gb per month but am concerned it is not going to be enough.

    I don't have the figures with me but I'm sure ours is nowhere near that amount.

    I doubt you will need that much!, unless your streaming media that is hosted on there maybe?

    is it a CMS your using?

    I suppose it depends if you are setting the school website as your homepage in school and how your caching works. Even then though 30GB is a lot and as has been said, you should be fine.

    have an unlimited bandwidth / space account with a friends reseller hosting. So far the school website hits around 20GB a month, despite the fact that no page is larger than 400kb!! Its soon to change if I have my way because I want to have joomla on the site and have a decent CMS rather than the heap of crap we have now!

    We do around 4Gb a day on our internally hosted moodle. I don't have the numbers for our school web site, which is hosted by LancsNGFL.

    I have a personal website that gets about 1000-2000 hits per month (using Joomla). The website hosts photo's and other media, and we hardly break the 1gig barrier of our 40 gig limit.

    Our school site uses a couple of GB each month, if you've just started out with a website for your school I imagine it will take some time to get 'established' so 30GB will be more than enough! ;p
