    Terminology: Bandwidth Vs. Transfer

    As there seems to be a bit of confusion over some of the terminology used in webhosting, I'd like to point out the following distinction:

    Transfer is the amount of data that an account is allowed to send back and forth in a given time period. For example, 10 GB per month.

    Bandwidth is the speed at which data can be transferred through the medium. For example, 10 Mbps (Megabits per second).

    Please keep this in mind as you're posting your offers and as you are reading other people's offers.
