Bandwidth refers to the transfer of data between a server and a computer. The level of bandwidth required by a website depends on the size of the website and the number of visitors.

For example, if 100 people visit a 2.4mb website at the same time, the server needs 240mb bandwidth. Or if 5000 people visit a 0.7mb website at the same time, the server requires 3,500mb bandwidth.

The Winner

It’s a tie. Shopify and Lemonstand both offer unlimited bandwidth.

One of the biggest benefits of utilizing a hosted e-commerce solution is not having to deal with server management, which both services provide.
