Using Breal as an example, if 1,000 visitors viewed every page onrepparttar site,repparttar 134409 total data transfer would be 2 GB (1,000 x 2 MB = 2,000 MB) or a single 10 KB file could be viewed 200,000 times andrepparttar 134410 data transfer would be 2 GB. Most professional level websites will use less than 2 GB bandwidth per month.

Why do some companies charge for bandwidth and data transfer, while others claim you can have unlimited bandwith and data transfer?

Strangely enough, free onrepparttar 134411 Internet often means fee. Look closely at many ofrepparttar 134412 unlimited offers and you will discover that there is a limit to bandwidth. You may need to contactrepparttar 134413 company and ask them to define what they mean by 'unlimited'.

#2: Portland

If you desire an easy to use hosting service, Portland Communications isrepparttar 134411 best provider for you. While

FreeWebs provides many attractive services, it seems to forgetrepparttar 134412 "basic necessities." (like being able

to upload more that one file at a time)

Placing second with a hit counter and 15 megabytes of ad-free space, Portland Communications has a few

distinct advantages over FreeWebs.

First, Portland provides a much more favorable URL: It is much easier to

remember, and it even appears that you have your own domain name!

Second, you can upload multiple files at once. FreeWebs only allows you to upload one file at a time,

which I found to be a very tedious process. Portland allows FTP access, which means that you can simply

selectrepparttar 134413 files you wish to upload and return whenrepparttar 134414 process is completed.

Note: FTP may be somewhat tricky forrepparttar 134415 beginner, so you may want to use FreeWebs or Portland, depending

on if you are comfortable with using FTP. I'd suggest trying both of them, and see which on you like

better. If you decide to use Portland, you can purchase a great FTP client (or download a free trial) at If you'd like to use a free FTP

client, you will find one at
