Is there like a monitor in CPanel from where I can see actual usage of bandwidth. Is it accurate or it can be wrong somehow ? What are Your observations about that.
Are there some other softwares which is better to use ?
What about server providers. How is this going in practice. Are they overcharging You saying that You are overuse Your monthly basic bandwidth or it is out of the question because monitoring from CPanel is accurate ?

If I buy additional Mbit of bandwidth is that actual 325 GB of bandwidth. Can someone explain me little more about that.
1 megabit per second = 60 megabits per minute
60 megabits per minute = 3600 megabits per hour
3600 megabits per hour = 86400 megabits per day
86400 megabits per day = 2592000 megabits per month
2592000 megabits per month = 324000 megabytes per month
324000 megabytes per month = 324 gigabytes per month
1megabit per second = 324 gigabytes per month
Now if you really want to get technical will and necessary prefixes, units, 1024's etc, head here:
A lot of companies will sell you a pipe and allow you to use as much bandwidth or as little bandwidth of that pipe as you choose. So for example a provider may say for $375 you can have a 1Mb unmetered connection.
Another provider may allot you 375 Gb of traffic per month.
Now with provider A, your site can never go above 1 Mb/second of bandwidth at one time. With provider B, you may be able to spike to 10, 100, or 1000 Mbs if you needed to. Obviously you would eat up your allotment pretty fast.
