During last five years video has in a literal sense inundated the internet, so changing its way web traffic creates new marketing opportunities for webmasters in almost every industry.
Video Sites like You Tube and Vimeo attract millions of viewers every day and have millions pages of content. These sites even surpass such monster search engine like Google.
Although it is unlikely that you will have the same level traffic as You Tube and other mega video sites (at least at the near future), adding video content to all the pages of your website will significantly increase the amount of time each visitor spends on each webpage.
Hosting a lot of video on your website will surely affect two very important points: bounce rate (the rate at which people leave your website for another site) and page view time (the time each person spends on each page). So, by improving these two factors, you will improve the page rank of your site as Google and other search engine machines will consider this site useful as people spend more time on each page.
Get More Disk Space and Load More Video
If we are talking about file size, a quality video file is usually larger than any other type of file, for example, 5 minute clip weights about 10MB. Thus, 100 video clips will consume approximately 1GB of disk space.
Moreover, if you update your content every day, it implies that you will have much more then 100 videos on your website. So, you will need to have huge amount of disk storage space that is provided by dedicated hosting plan.
In order not to overpay for excessive disk space, you’d better calculate in advance the amount of disk space you need.
Get More Bandwidth – Get More Traffic
Dedicated hosting will allow you to have almost unlimited amount of bandwidth which is the amount of data that can be transferred at any given point of time. So, bandwidth directly influence on how much traffic you will be able to accommodate without having negative impact on the performance of the site or causing downtime.
Thanks to enough amount of bandwidth your video will load much more faster that undoubtedly will be appreciated by your visitors. Generally, dedicated hosting providers offer 1500- 3000 GB of bandwidth that means you will be able to accommodate thousands of visitors at the same time without damaging site performance.
