Bandwidth Exceeded!

Sow Nesting

Oops. I exceeded the bandwidth limits. Actually it was and that sucked down all my web sites for a while. But due to the generous donations of readers we’re backup and running with loads more bandwidth. I also want to thank Nirosh at VON who is my web hosting provider. See the full story over at the site.

    Now, if only I knew what a bandwidth was, I’d understand your post…

  3. Betty, in this case bandwidth refers to how many bytes a web site is allowed to serve up to readers per month. For example to retrieve a page with a couple of pictures i might be 200,000 bytes which is termed 200KB* of data. If my web site has a bandwidth limit of 1GB then it can serve up that page approximately 5,000 times.

    So, what happened the other day is my other blog used up all the bandwidth for my account for the month of March, before the month was over. This caused my server to effectively shut down. Sort of like running out of gas.

    But, the good news is that I was able to get more gas, er, I mean bandwidth, so that problem should be a thing of the past, at least for the foreseeable future.



    *Just to confuse things 200,000 bytes is actually 195.3125KB because 1KB = 1024 Bytes but people don’t generally get that picky when talking about it. Be loose… :)
