- *** INFORMATION on BANDWIDTH THEFT (HOT-LINKING)
Bandwidth is the amount of data transferred from a website to a user's computer. When viewing a webpage, you are using that site's data transfer to display the files. Most Web hosting providers charge an individual/company based on the amount of monthly data transfer (a.k.a. bandwidth). When a Web site exceeds its allotted monthly bandwidth, it is charged for the extra data.
A simple example of bandwidth theft (hot-linking): Someone unknown to you connects to your electrical outlets or telephone line, uses the electricity/or makes calls without your consent and you pay the bill.
