Web Hosting Bandwidth Explained including cPanel tool

In this article, I’m going to be explaining as simply as possible how Web Hosting Bandwidth (sometimes mentioned as Data Transfer) works, and I’ll also try to answer all the questions that might come to mind when thinking about Bandwidth for your websites.

Bandwidth is the amount of data that can be Transmitted between users (Website Visitors) and a Server concurrently.

It is measured in terms of MB/s (Megabyte Per Second). But most Hosting companies express Bandwidth in terms of GB/s (Gigabyte Per Second) to simplify things.

You can think of Bandwidth as a file transfer

When you upload your website files on a web hosting server and configure it to go live, each time a person visits any part of your website (index.html or some inner page), an HTTP request is sent over to your server to fetch a copy of the file/page to be served on the visitor’s browser.

Top 10 SSL Certificates Providers in 2020

Running an online business is not an easy job. A strong reputation on the e-commerce market depends a lot on the quality and the prices of the products, but before a company can present what they offer to customers, they need to make sure the security of their website works accordingly. Every online page is susceptible to cyberthreats of all kinds, such as: ransomware attacks; phishing attacks; malware infiltration; breach of data; edge computing or botnets. Consequently, security is a necessity.

Secured Socket Layer (SSL), just like Transport Layer Security (TLS), is a cryptographic security protocol that encrypts the connection between a web browser and a web server making sure the connection is secured (HTTPS). In order to make the website of an online business secure, you will need an SSL certificate. Secured sites have a padlock icon in front of their URL address and this will also show HTTPS instead of HTTP.

Discover the top SSL providers like: gogetssl.com, sectigo.com, digicert.com, geotrust.com, globalsign.com, godaddy.com, rapidssl.com, ssl.com, instantssl.com, globessl.com, thawte.com and over 850 other web hosting providers selling SSL certificates. We also compared the cheap SSL plans so you can have a fast overview.
