What is the difference between bandwidth and transfer?

Data Transfer

Data transfer refers to the total amount of bytes of data a server transfers to a particular website in a given period of time. Most hosting plans measure the amount of data transferred across a server over a 30 day or one month period.

Bandwidth

Bandwidth is a term that precedes servers, computers and all digital technologies. Bandwidth was first used in analog tools and devices to submit radio transmission signals, acoustic signals and other types of signals. In computing, bandwidth refers to the maximum amount of data that is transferable in a given period of time.
