How bandwidth Usage calculated for a Media files downloading website?
I have just started a WordPress website with the OpenLiteSpeed web server on DigitalOcean. The site is brand new and has no traffic yet.
I have seen the bandwidth usage in the billing section, and those figures were horrifying for me.
I saw, “You have accrued 1179 GB of free data transfer. If you keep Droplets running at the same pace, your monthly pool should be 3000 GB.”
Now, I am very concerned about the future of my website.
I have planned to sell up to 10,000 WordPress themes and plugins (GPL License) on my website. Each theme or plugin’s .zip file size may vary from 1 MB to 100 MB.
My website for reference: https://fixoweb.com/
I am planning to promote my website and expect to receive up to 5,000 unique visitors per day. I think each visitor will download at least 200 MB files.
The big problem or question is how the bandwidth usage calculated for a Media files downloading website?
If a visitor downloads 1 GB file, then how much bandwidth will be counted on downloading.
Can you share the bandwidth count formula for a media files download website?
