What is transfer?
Last updated: March 28, 2011
Transfer is a term used in web hosting and networking to reference how much data has been moved onto or off of a network in a given time frame.
In web hosting this is usually a set amount of data a customer is allowed to move on or off or their account and depending on the provider could be a combination of web, ftp, email or other types of traffic.
Transfer is often confused with bandwidth.
