If a 50 page site receives 30000 visitors a month, would a plan with the following features be suitable:

7GB disk space
70GB bandwidth

    Depending on the graphics on the site depends on how much bandwidth your site is going to use up. If its mostly text based your fine. 70GB of bandwidth should be plenty to cover.

    Am not an expert in this field, but judging by mt stats and diskspace/bandwith I would imagine that hould be ok!

    There is really no such size as a "page". Instead of page, you should maybe use the largest text page, including ALL components! That means ALL graphics, style sheet, etc...

    Visitors is really irrelevant. It should be the average number of pages viewed by each visitor times the number of visitors.

    SO, if the average page views by a visitor is 1.5, and the maximum text size of a page is 3K and it has 10 graphics with an average size of 10K, and you have 30000 visitors, then....


    30,000*(1.5 *((10*10K)+3K)=30,000 *158208=4,746,240,000 About 5GB bandwidth

    Assuming your numbers are right, that number SHOULD be a bit high, because of caching that takes place. Keep in mind that if the visitor ccomes back, they may hit different pages and drive things higher.

    Using this, assuming static pages, and NO overhead, (50 * (int(158208/1024)+1))=7750K about 8MB disk

    The average allocation unit is 1K, so a 100byte file takes 1K of disk space, and a 1025byte file takes about 2K of disk space.

    Nothing is 100% precise, and it is better to have more than not enough. ALSO, if you make 10 sales, and you have 1 product that is 100K, then you need at least 100K more disk space, and 1GB more bandwidth.

    You should be ok, however make sure you can upgrade mid month without penalty just in case.
