You do not need to know any real detail of either to make a decision as to which you need but here a few guidelines.

data transferData TransferThis article will define what various terms used by web hosting companies mean. It's not possible (and sometimes insulting to the reader) to cover everything so this will just cover the most commonly used and important terms.

Bandwidth is only a concern if you host a lot of files, for example images or movies, as web pages are usually small file sizes.
