Why Website Bandwidth Matters
Bandwidth is the amount of data transferred to and from your site. Optimizing bandwidth improves performance.
Monitoring Bandwidth Usage
Track inbound and outbound bandwidth usage over time to identify trends and optimization opportunities.
Avoiding Bandwidth Overage Fees
Upgrade to a VPS or dedicated server if shared hosting bandwidth limits pose challenges.
Strategies to Optimize Bandwidth
· Compress files, images, media
· Implement caching and CDNs
· Limit large downloads
· Use redirects
Bandwidth is measured in bytes per second (Bps), kilobytes per second (KBps), megabytes per second (MBps), or gigabytes per second (GBps).
Carefully optimizing your website bandwidth usage helps maximize site performance and minimize costs.
