Web Hosting Bandwidth Calculator

This calculator will tell you how much bandwidth is required to support visitors to your website.


  • Page Views per minute/day/month
  • Average Page Size (Byte/kilobyte/Megabyte)
  • Redundancy Factor




Pageviews – this is the number of pages viewed over a time interval. For instance a website with a moderate amount of traffic will get 1000 pageviews/day. The number associated with your website can be found in Google Analytics.

Redundancy – This is a safety factor to account for traffic spikes. The range is from 1.3 to 1.8 although 2 would provide adequate margin.

Example Bandwidth Calculation

If your website gets 3000 page views a day and the average page size is 2 MB, the bandwidth requirement is 1.11 Mbit/second. On a monthly basis, 360 GB is required per month. This assumes a redundancy factor of 2.
