Have you ever visited a website that seemed to load excessively slow and it wasn’t even that heavy on graphics or images? We have all been in that situation at some point and the reason why this happens is because that website is experiencing an overload of traffic and the bandwidth it allows has been exceeded. Some hosting services used to shut down a website after it exceeded its monthly bandwidth, but now that they offer “unlimited” bandwidth, they just let the site slow down to a point that it can barely be navigated.

This is the moment when a website owner has to invest in getting dedicated hosting in order to increase the bandwidth and avoid the slowdown.
