What counts towards our plan’s CDN allotment? Is the bandwidth allotment impacted solely by HTML?

Your images and other static assets like javascript, CSS, etc. referenced by the page count towards your CDN bandwidth allotment. Server bandwidth is consumed when PHP (non-cached requests) is rendering the output and sending that to a visitor.

Typically, the vast majority of your total bandwidth is static assets referenced by the pages that can be served over our AWS CloudFront CDN so that allotment is always higher (and more affordable) than the server bandwidth allotment.
