Which is most attractive to YOU when setting up or buying a hosting package,
1) Disk Space

As a customer...space is most important ...
As a Host Bandwidth is most....
All depends on your needs at the moment..

You need to consider both,
if you havnt got any space and pipe fulls of bandwidth you wont use the bandwidth so its pointless having the amount, unless you have some serious traffic of course
If you have say 240GB disk space and 1GB Bandwidth your obviously not going to get the space filled up to easily, especially if you are uploading / downloading and viewing files remotely.
The space:bandwidth amounts all depend on the users need. if you leave some more information we can more than likely give you an idea of what you would need.

I think that bandwidth and disk space should not be the main focal point to your hosting business. You will always find someone else that will state more that you will. I think you will find most customers looking for more than the bandwidth and disk space ratios.

Personaly I would like to have a host that offers about 1.5GB bandwindth to every 50mb space or something.
I would say that they are both as important as each other."Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning."

it very much does depend on the need of the customer.
For instance a customer may run a site with large files that get downloaded once in a blue moon. Meaning the customer may be after a package with a large amount of disk space but little bandwidth.
Or you could have a customer that has a site with just pictures and html files that takes up little space. But it could have lots of visitors pushing large amounts of data transfer.

In my opinion...

I would say that it depends on what kind of customers you are targeting to. For example a gaming customer would prefer more bandwidth whereas an applications programmer would prefer more space...some people prefer it balanced.
