Bandwidth

Bandwidth is essentially the amount of transactions allowed over the network. Every time a personconnects to a server to access a website, there is data moving to and fro. This data constitutes the bandwidth. If the bandwidth is set to 10GB, when the total transaction over the network exceeds 10GB the connections are blocked. Most hosting providers now offer unlimited and unmetered bandwidth. When offering unlimited bandwidth, it is crucial to have a support team that monitors uptime and caters to customers in case of emergencies. Hiring an outsourced web hosting support is a good solution.

Number of Websites/Domains

Depending on the amount charged, hosting providers put a limit on the number of websites a customer can host on the server. Most hosting providers begin with 1 website per server and go up to unlimited websites per server.

3rd Party Hosting

Websites were once designed solely by coding in languages like HTML and CSS. Web hosting providers needed to offer reasonable space to upload these files and maintain bandwidth and uptime. Over the last decade, 3rd party platforms, also called Content Management Systems or CMS, like WordPress and Joomla have made website designing easier by offering graphical designing capability instead of the command or code based designing methods. Because of the ease, most designers are moving to these platforms. Web hosts have to be able to host these platforms and cater to customers designing on these platforms.
