Browsing and bandwidth

Posted by TedH (TedH), 21 January 2006
Just curious about something.

When someone surfs to my website, then proceeds to spend the next five hours browsing the rest of the world, does the data, which goes back and forth to the ISP the user has originated from, go through my website's server and use up my bandwidth?

(I very rarely get the chance to be both pleasant and negative at the same time).

Once someone follows a link away from your site, they'll be in direct contact with the other site server.   Indeed you won't even know that they've left via that link ... they simply won't call up any more pages.

Right. Okay
