Disk storage, also known as disk space or web storage, refers to the amount of data storage allocated by a web hosting provider for your website. This storage space is used to hold all the files that make up your website, such as HTML files, images, videos, scripts, and databases. The amount of disk storage needed depends on the size and complexity of your website. Smaller websites with minimal media files typically require less storage, while larger websites with numerous pages, images, and videos may need more.
Bandwidth, on the other hand, is the amount of data that can be transferred between your website and its users over a specific period of time. It is often measured in gigabytes (GB) per month. Every time someone visits your website, they download the necessary files to display the site on their device, consuming bandwidth in the process. Websites with high traffic or large media files (such as videos or high-resolution images) typically require more bandwidth to accommodate the increased data transfer. It’s important to choose a web hosting plan that provides sufficient bandwidth to ensure a smooth user experience and prevent slow loading times or site outages due to exceeded bandwidth limits.
