Bandwidth & Traffic at Umbler

Definition

Bandwidth is the communication capacity of a network. When you use the Internet, you are using bandwidth. Bandwidth is directly related to the transfer speeds of information on the network. A bigger bandwidth means a faster download or upload transfer rate.

Traffic is the maximum monthly amount of data transfer your site can provide. In every visit to your website, images and other information are sent to the user's computer, this adds up to the final monthly traffic of your website. You should never have to worry about traffic.

Umbler limits for traffic and bandwidth

Umbler works under the "unmetered bandwidth" method, offering a set amount of bandwidth (for example, 1Gbps) that you can use as much as you’d like. The maximum server speed is limited, but the amount of data you can transfer is not. Protocols like SSH, FTP or GIT don't have their traffic limited.

Umbler's hosts are not to be used as a service for online backup or file storage. Failing to follow this instructions, or reaching the bandwidth limit could lead to penalties ranging from a limitation in transfer rates, to more aggressive measures like deactivation of services.
