    I've seen a thread on here (WMM) with people complaining about shinjiru, I think...

    100GB a month is an average of about 30kB/s - if you had a more-or-less steady requirement for bandwidth, it's about the same as Streamyx upstream. Although I imagine TM would have something to say about 100GB upload / month...

    What are you going to use it for? Most stuff like blogs and portal sites have more sporadic use, so 100GB a month ought to be good for an average of 10,000 pages a day, even if your content is 'fat'. If you've got fat content, and you get all your traffic once a day, say at 9am, your instantaneous bandwidth is more important. I think a lot of webhosts cap at 1Mbit/s - about 3x Streamyx upstream - but I'm sure there are people on WMM better able to say.

    Are you moving webhosts, or starting new?

    What sort of site do you have which you think you need 100GB space and 100GB data transfer?

    I believe with 50gb just enough,
    only if you're doing ebook selling..

    if you doing flash game site..
    then you need bigger than 100gb bandwith..
    maybe 1500 gb, unlimited domain names
    and get up to 2500 email..
    yay..

    how does web server allocate data for
    multiple hosts..

    Its not just a matter of how many people accessing
    your sites, there are other sites on the same
    drive too. It will depends on how busy the entire server is...
    Until you are receiving 100 hits to your site at once,
    you are far from having to worry about speed.

    FYI, few data centers and web hosting providers offer:

    -Linux and Windows based platforms.

    I learn this from WMC

    lf Web portal,
    then you have to arrange your requirements.
    usually can get sites done in a week
    and sooner if not to complicated. What
    makes it take longer is usually waiting
    for a client to submit all their content and pictures..

    There is a web site that gives expert opinions
    on business models for portals..
    try google..

    Unless you are going to have many many portal sites and each one has a great amount of data, I don't think you will reach anywhere near 100GB of space.

    If you are really going to use 100GB of space or 100GB of data transfer, that would mean your portals are very busy sites and there is a good chance that your account will be suspended / shutdown for excess memory or CPU usage.

    There is a limit of what a shared hosting account can do as the server resources are shared by a number of other accounts too. It is very unfortunate that hosts have used massive overselling adverts which has now given end-users false impressions for what they actually need and are actually going to get for the amount of money they are paying.

    The 100GB storage thing does seem a bit bogus. Maybe it's to tempt you to put all your warez on there. Whetever you fill that space with, you're only going to be able to look at it once a month before you go over your bandwidth quota.

    Then again, if you're moving sites, you know exactly how much storage and bandwidth you need, and how you expect it to grow. I would have thought any site would have far greater bandwidth requirements than storage requirements. Maybe I've missed something. Anyone?

    All my sites, code and data, including some development work that's not yet online, totals less than half a gigabyte. It's a good month if there's more than 1 or 2GB of traffic (we have no heavyweight content) on my server. One thing that might subtract from that is backups - I don't do backups over a network, they happen on the server, so that saves about 6GB of traffic a month. And that's compressed data (which would cost either CPU on the server or double bandwidth to compress at home). Oh! Maybe that's worth considering. Do people with webhosts do their own backups? Or is that part of most hosting packages?

    Often if you read the TOS, you will find that there will be restrictions, maybe such as no uploading warez or video or music files etc etc or no using the space provided as file storage etc etc. In effect, you end up not being able to use the space fully. But people just like to think they are getting large amounts for little money.

    Yes, that would be the norm. The fact that space and data transfer are the same itself shows that those figures aren't realistic. Then there may be some that offer 500GB space and 100GB data transfer which becomes even more odd.

    You are always advised to do your own backups whether your host does them or not.

    let them says host by malaysia hosting 2u or some one else other
    the are telling using 15gb web storage with 80gb data transfer
    does it effect the people traffic if the
    data storage needs change from time to time,
    I mean to safe guard the information.
    and it should be more than another hard drive
    on your computer.


    how to solve this ?
