Size of a Web Page
August 15, 2010 12:18pm CST
We are often opening web pages for various purposes. And for that we are paying to the internet service provider. Here I have BroadBand connection with 2 GB free downloading and uploading at the cost of Rs.500/-+ Service Taxes @12.34%. The amount is equals to $10 + service taxes @12.34%. Every month I am paying extra charges equivalent to my normal charges. My question, is it possible to know the size of the site which I have opened? If possible how? And if I can know the size before opening it will also be very helpful.

Yeah, it is possible to know the size of the site easily. For example, if you are a user of Firefox browser, then you can monitor the page size with a plugin named View Dependencies, which is a FireFox addon that adds a tab to the page info window containing all the files which were loaded to show the current webpage. If you can use Opera browser to surf the Internet, then you can save some bandwidth too.

Are you talking of the bandwidth of the website that you want to have that a certain web hosting company can give you? If that's the case, it's usually given upfront to you which means, you are given a choice how large you want to have. There are different fee for a different bandwidth and it also varies from one company to the other. There are cheaper web hosting sites there, like the one we have, we paid almost $7 every month and you get discounts if you purchase it for a longer time frame. I'm just hoping I'm talking the right thing here.
