Two of the key factors to consider when you are searching for the right web hosting are the webspace and the bandwidth that are included in the price of the hosting package. But how much webspace and bandwidth do you actually need? We are going to help you figure this out…
To put it simply, you need to have enough space to be able to upload all your files to your web hosting. Your files include HTML files with your content, images, scripts, multimedia files, etc.
The space required depends very much on the type of website you want to create. In general, this is a good rule of thumb:
How much webspace do you need for a website? We give you a few practical examples. And do not worry about bandwidth: with Combell, bandwidth is unlimited!
The average page size is between 1 and 2 MB. By the way, we advise you not to use pages larger than 2 MB, as they will load too slowly, resulting in poor user experience.
Depending on the number of pages on your website, you can calculate the webspace you need as follows: average size per page x number of pages. And you can calculate the bandwidth you need as follows: webspace x page loads per month.
Below are some examples:
In addition to the actual content of your web pages, you must also take into account the back-end features of your hosting, such as the database software, software for your shopping cart and for the secure processing of payments, data traffic logs, counters, guestbooks, etc.
The more features you want to include in your website, the more disk space you will need. The space required for these features depends on the product and should be determined in advance.
If you are working with a Content Management System (CMS) such as WordPress or WooCommerce for your website, you will have to take other factors into account, in addition to the actual content.
As you know, with a CMS, a page is created on the spot for every visitor, using content that is retrieved from a database. This means you have to add the size of the core of the CMS, as well as the size of the MySQL database.
Moreover, in your CMS, you will be working with themes for the layout of your site, and with plugins for a number of features, such as integration of social media, comments, SEO advice, spam filtering, etc.
TIP: With Combell, you can choose from more than 80 different CMSs, which can be installed for you with a single click, at no extra cost!
These are general guidelines for calculating the required webspace for your WordPress website:
As you can see, a space of 1 GB will often be sufficient. Of course, some websites contain much more multimedia content or larger databases. And on the other hand, many websites will require less webspace. But this should give you an idea of the amount of space you need.
If you already have an existing website and are looking for another web hosting, you can of course find out for yourself how much space you are currently using. This way, you will have a good starting point in your search for the best web hosting that will best suit your needs.
