As I am still new to all of this, what do you mean by traffic count towards bandwidth?

In its most basic definition, bandwidth describes the level of traffic in TBs that can transfer between your site, users, and the Internet. Each web hosting company will offer a maximum levels of bandwidth for their tiers of hosting packages.

At the same time, you should try to avoid attractive-looking “unlimited bandwidth/traffic” offers, as these are often not what they seem.

Hello, Are you referring when a company advertises "up to xxxx visitors per hour" or whatever?

If so that basically as good as relying on hardware specification sheet. Meaning they tend to only displays the HIGHEST number possible in impossible conditions (laboratory controls).

Avoid the hype and simply focus on companies who cater to your requirements. They will do the rest if you just explain to them on what your requiring as that what hosting companies are there for.

Actually if you think about it deeply bandwidth is not as "simple" as that.

I would refer that as like "gas" in a car. If you have enough of it, the "car" will stay "on". BUT the real question is, can it "burn" that's "month of gas" ? Or will it never be able to be used?

That's where the rest comes in, CPU, RAM, etc.

Bandwidth is how wide the data pipe is between your service and the internet/users and is usually measured in bits per second [or megabits, or gigabits, etc]. Transfer is how much data you can transfer over a measured amount of time - usually a month.

So if you have 1 TB of Transfer it says nothing about your bandwidth. You could have a 1,000 Megabit connection, 100 Megabit, 10 megabit, or less - which is how much bandwidth you have.

These terms have become somewhat interchangeable in this industry but the reality is that they aren't - they're two different but related things.

If you have 1 TB of transfer that means you can transfer / upload / send 1 TB [ ~1,000 Gigabytes ] of data from the server to visitors/users.

If, for example, your website is 250 kilobytes on load - you can serve about 3,906,250 page loads per month [assuming no caching is in use on the client side / browser / anywhere else]. In reality you'll be able to serve more than that because you're surely going to have repeat visitors that have some of the data cached and, as such, they don't get sent the full 256 KB every time.

In reality - most sites on shared hosting use somewhere between 1 and 5 gigabytes of transfer/month. Most shared servers use somewhere between 5 and 50 megabit [with higher spikes, but the average is 5 to 50 or so].

Not necessary if the customer doesn't have the performance requirements then he/she will be only able to service less loads and such.

It's how "100TB" and "unmetered" bandwidth (really transfer) providers sometimes works. Because they allocate "limits" that you will likely not be able to reach to any real capacity.

Now if you really paid up for a 100TB transfer server then yes you will likely be able to use up that amount. Even reputable unmetered providers will allow you to use their pipes as you need.

As I mentioned above that response. Transfer (not bandwidth) isn't the only variable involved in how much traffic your site can holds up to.

I'm talking about bandwidth / data transfer only.

Sure - there are going to be other limits but it's outside the scope of what bandwidth / transfer _are_.
