what's store up to 1 GB with 1 GB bandwidth. the difference? let's say i will need a lot of update in photos. (portfolio), which should i use?
and what's bandwidth?
btw, if I create a site for a client, and it's basically no need of upgrade. shall I just use the combo account?
Also, if client has a domain name already, which I should choose then? (Since the connect domain name still not able to remove the ad)
I am so confuse. please help thanks!

Hi, i'd like to know what 10gb storage means. Can i upload mp4 or mov videos directly onto my website up to 10gb? Currently i'm bringing the videos onto my site through youtube links. Would i be able to directly upload them and keep them running online, also with the help of unlimited bandwidth?

What happens if I embed Youtube videos onto my site? Does that use up my bandwidth just like loading the page itself?
I want to post several videos onto my site and I expect to route traffic to my Youtube channel through it to see my content.
Will 500MB of bandwidth make this a big problem? If this is the case, I can't really afford to upgrade to Unlimited right now. Are there any other workarounds that I can use?

1GB badnwidth means that users can collectively download 1GB of content from your site at any given time. This refers to loading of the site itself. For example, if your site is 5 MB, it means that 200 people can load your site on their computers simultaneously.
For users with a lot of traffic (many visitors every day), we recommend upgrading to the Unlimited package so that there's no limit on the number of users that can access your site at the same time.Yoni - Wix Support

yes - so with the analogy by the Wix Team member -
bandwidth equals the number or quality of user which may access a webpage in any given second.
storage equals the amount of data (webpage(s) and the content/elements which are used to make a page(s)).

A site’s bandwidth determines how much data your visitors can view over time, as well as having an effect on the speed at which the site is viewed by your visitors.
A site's storage space refers to how much content (including images and files uploaded to your site) you can store on our servers.
Currently, we do not have a component shows how much storage or bandwidth a user has used, however we are working on developing one. If we notice that you are about to exceed the storage and bandwidth limitations, we will let you know.

The bandwidth is like a pipe line, the bigger the pipe, the more water can go through in it in any given time.
If the diameter of the pipe is small, it will take more time for the water to go through. (water = data)
The storage space refers to how much content you can store on our servers.
For the time being there isn't a component that shows the user how much of his storage space has been used (we're working on developing one).
We'll notice if you're about to exceed your storage space on our servers and we will let you know.Elia - Wix Support
