What is difference between 1 Gbps port ,1 gpbs bandwidth,1 Gbps uplink, 20Tb bandwidth on 1 gbps

Hi,
I am looking to buy dedicated server but too much confused with the term gbps.please explain the difference between 1 Gbps port ,1 gpbs bandwidth,1 Gbps uplink, 20Tb bandwidth on 1 gbps.And also explain what is public bandwidth and private bandwidth.

    Since nobody has answered you... I would expect
    1 Gbps port
    1 gpbs bandwidth
    1 Gbps uplink
    20Tb bandwidth on 1 gbps.

    All mean that your server will be connected to a 1 gigabit per second shared public network connection. This does not mean that you will reach speeds of 1 gbps all the time. It means that the max speed you will reach is 1 gbps. The 20TB is a limit of maximum transfer that you can do each month. This all relates to public transfer (bandwidth).

    A good question to ask before purchase is: What is the minimum guaranteed speed of the uplink?

    Private bandwidth is the data you transfer between multiple servers that you have contracted in the same data center, and does not need to go via a carrier. This transfer is normally done on a second network connection set with a private IPv4 address such as 10.10.1.1.

  • Thanks for you answer

  • make sure you ask the prodiver what the real user limits really are,
    hourly, daily. even the cords what is limit 20% 30%, if you run out of bw can you buy more,
    some providers will say NO, you need to get a higher server package, Sorry you are SOL.

    Note that some low-end hosts often just have one physical network adapter on the servers, and use the same physical network for both the internal and external network, meaning any network congestion will affect both networks.
