How can I find the data transfer rate on the server. I have done ifconfig -a , it
display the amout of data has been received and transfered. I want to see the live data transfer date. Can I able to check it?
One of my Cpanel servers is showing heavy data transfer this month. In 6 days, it crossed 600 GB data transfer which is equal to what it did last month. Also, all the websites collectively have only consumed around 60 GB data transfer in 6 days. How do I find out what exactly is causing heavy data transfer?
have set up a server at burst.net.But burst.net said they will not transfer my data from Dreamhost.com to my new server.I think it's a bad idea to download all my data from dreamhost to my computer and then upload them to the new server.So,is there any easier way to transfer the data from Dreamhost.com to my new server at burst.net?
It seems dreamhost has no SSH and cPanel,but my server has both of them.I heard that I can use the get/mget command to do that,
i wana take a backup of my site but the data is too much and i wana transfer it to another server do any one know about server to server data transfer, without downloading data from server to my pc. and i can upload that data to another server faster.
i have tried directransfer.net but it is expensive too much. can any one suggest me any site like this or it is cheap.
we have one server and take new server today we want transfer all data old server to new server my server is centos and cpanel i don`t want done this work of whm if we transfered /etc and /home is good?
Simply put, bandwidth refers to how much data can be transferred at a time. Data transfer relates to how much data is actually being transferred. Think of it this way: If bandwidth were a bridge, then the bigger the bridge, the more vehicles can pass over it. Data transfer, on the other hand, can be compared to the number of vehicles allowed on the bridge in a given period of time.
and i access to my web host manager i see there view bandwidth usage link
so it shows usage in percentages....(increases as month passes...)
so if we go by defination, is it really bandwidth they are showing or is it data transfer they are showing to us...?
(bandwidth refers to how much data can be transferred at a time,so it is fixed ...means if 3gb is given ....then it cannot be said 80% of 3gb used.....here 3gb should mean any data higher than 3gb cannot pass ...though this site at an instance ...isn't that...)
And why is data transfer not so used term in webhosting if it that important ...means i have not seen many people saying 500gb datatransfer rather than saying 500gb bandwidth...(as it seems completely different from defination...)
From defination,data transfer seems to be more important than bandwidth...
Do you have a website or have you been involved in hosting a website for your company or some of your friends? Then you should have heard about the terms Bandwidth and Data transfer. Often there is confusion in understanding both these terms.
Bandwidth is the capacity of the network or the server that hosts the website, to send data at a moment. It is the amount of data sent per second from the server. This count more because, if there are many websites in the server and a million hits for the sites the server should be capable of sending that much of data at that moment. If the web server that you host your website has high bandwidth then the users visiting your site would see the pages quickly.
If you refer to the bandwidth there are two numbers separated by "/". The first number indicates the bandwidth that is allowed to send data and the second number indicates the bandwidth allowed to receive data. In most of the cases the bandwidth to send data is less than the bandwidth to receive data.
Data transfer is the amount of data that is sent by the server over a period of time.
For example the monthly data transfer allowed for a particular site might be 1GB. This means that the website account is allowed to transfer data from their website for only 1GB per month.
Consider that you have a page in your website that is of size 100kb. If this page is visited 100 times per month, then the data transfer added to your account would be 10 MB due to this page alone. Hence to minimize the data transfer it is always better to minimize the file size of the web page. This can be done in many ways.
You should know that a web page contains not only text but also media content such as images, sounds, videos, and downloadable files. When you create your web page you should keep in mind that you optimizing all these files so that the page loads quickly and the data transfer is kept at the minimum. That is why most of the photos related sites have thumbnail pictures so that they can reduce the data transfer due to the main page and the user is allowed to download the actual image only if they are interested in seeing that image.
While hosting a website with a service provider most of us tend to see only the features that are available for your hosting and the web space that is provided for your plan.
The cost to the web hosting company due to these are very less when compared to the cost due to data transfer.
If you know that you website is going to attract a lot of visitors to it, then you should go for an account or plan that has more data transfer per month. This would save you a lot of money. So the next time you purchase a web hosting plan keep an eye on the Data Transfer allowed for your plan.
