How Much Bandwidth Do You Really Need?

This is a guest post by Jake about the normal bandwidth a user really needs.By definition, bandwidth is the measure of data volume that is transmitted over an internet connection. However, actual bandwidth measure depends on a lot of things and there are different ways to determine how much bandwidth is used. With the evolution of the internet, smaller businesses can take advantage of products and services that were previously only available to bigger companies. For example, Aptela VoIP service, delivered via the Internet, gives any size business a quality broadband connection. For this reason, you need to understand your bandwidth requirements before you can determine your bandwidth needs.

Unlimited Bandwidth

The truth is, unlimited bandwidth is impossible and any hosting company who offers this is setting a trap. Since there are no broadband companies that offer unlimited bandwidth connections, it is impossible that the web hosting companies using them would be able to provide unlimited bandwidth. Therefore, if a hosting company offers "Unlimited Bandwidth" as one of its services, be sure to read the fine print. Chances are you will discover that your site must qualify for unlimited bandwidth, and while your bandwidth may be technically free, if you go over a certain number of GB per month, you will be charged. The reason age old sayings are age old is because they are usually true; and in this case, if unlimited bandwidth seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Bandwidth Requirements

It is a good idea to find a web hosting service provider that offers a range of different bandwidth packages so that you can find the one that best suits your business. You also want to choose one that offers an upgrade option in case the bandwidth you have initially chosen turns out not to be enough. Even with an upgrade option, knowing up front what your bandwidth requirements are will help you to make the best decision the first time so you should take certain factors into consideration. First of all, think about how many users will be accessing your website. Also, you should think about the pages your website consists of because, with bandwidth, it is not the quantity but the quality of the text that matters. You might have only a few pages, but if they are filled with graphics, that will eat up a lot of your bandwidth allowance. Large audio and video files will also require more space and three-dimensional audio and video presentations will require more bandwidth still.

It is very important to keep a close eye on your usage over the first few months to determine if you have chosen the right bandwidth requirements or not and to determine if you need to make an adjustment. No matter how much research and thought you put into your initial bandwidth decision, it will take time before you know for sure whether the amount bandwidth you have chosen is actually enough since it all depends on the amount of traffic you are receiving.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
