What is Bandwidth Usage?

Bandwidth usage is all the data sent or received too or from your web hosting account. This means every time someone views your website or sends you an email, this data is tallied towards your monthly usage.

All bandwidth usage is based on calendar months, so your usage starts at 12:01am on the first day of each month and ends at 11:59pm on the last day of every month.

GoHosting sends out notifications of bandwidth usage which are sent out daily once your usage hits 80%. If your site reaches over 100% usage the web site is automatically suspended, GoHosting try's to avoid this by making contact with you if we have not heard from you at 90% usage.
