Has anyone tried visionwebhosting.net before? It seems like pretty decent prices to me but I want to see what you ranchers think...

Also, what is the average size of a web page request? I am trying to calculate how many page hits per month I can expect with a 5 Gig traffic allowance. Is a normal request roughly 2K? 50K? 200K?

I take it you mean outgoing responses, since incoming requests are generally quite small (except for form submissions).

Nobody except you can possibly know this. What size are your pages? And how many hits do you currently get?

There are many providers out there that allow you unlimited bandwidth. Why dont you shift to them ? Calculate the average size of your pages and then multiply that number by the number of hits you get. You should get a rough idea.

I've always gone with Startlogic.com myself, the price is right and they more than meet my needs. I've never had a super high traffic site before though, but one site I did maintain had a lot of graphics and I never went over the 50GB transfer.
