    Newbie question.. (did a search already)

    How large is 5G/month Data transfer? Is it good enough for a site with a message forum with an estimate of 20 new messages per day and a 20MB+ photo gallery?

    I found this plan at icdsoft.com which looks very good to me. However, I am a newbie to webhosting so I have no idea if 5G/month data transfer is good enough for my site.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best advice is to look for a host that will let you upgrade quickly and easily if necessary. That way if you choose the 5 gig account and it's not enough, you can avoid overage fees. From what you describe, 5 gigs should cover it, but make sure your host will work with you.
