Free Website Bandwidth Calculator
This is an online bandwidth calculator (with explanation of how it works) where you can estimate the amount of web traffic, in gigabytes per month, that your web site will need from a web hosting server.
The estimation of web traffic (bandwidth) requirements can be figured by a simple mathematical formula based on the anticipated number of monthly pageviews and the average size of the web pages, including all images, video files, etc. that will be downloaded for the requested webpage (cached files may not need to be downloaded for additional viewed web pages). Every webpage view or file download by a visitor or yourself increases the monthly running bandwidth total by the size of the requested files (often file uploads are also included in your data transfer total).
The monthly bandwidth estimate formula is:
(WEB TRAFFIC REQUIRED) =where the math forumula's parameters are defined as:
Technically 1 GB = 1024 MB, and 1 MB = 1024 KB, but as many webhosts do (and for the sake of rounding the calculations to make them easier to read), the calculations in the free online webmaster tool / script above use a conversion factor of 1 GB = 1000 MB, and 1 MB = 1000 KB.
