The monthly traffic characteristic, that is sometimes also referred to as bandwidth or information transfer, identifies the full volume of information which is uploaded to your cloud hosting account and downloaded from it monthly. Your traffic is produced predominantly by site visits - when somebody finds your web site, the pages they see are downloaded from the web hosting server to their machine or smartphone and they are shown by the web browser. What counts for the website traffic generated is the overall size of these web pages, as a result the more website visitors you get for a period of time, the more web site traffic will be generated. In addition to the website visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer which means that if you upload website content or any other files using a file manager or an FTP application, they'll also produce some website traffic. The counter resets on the very first day of each month and it's not related to the date you have registered and the date you have renewed your web hosting package.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Hosting
All of our cloud hosting plans were created with the concept to handle the traffic generated by any kind of site that can run in such an account. If you have one or several small or medium-sized sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly traffic quota irrespective of what content you may have - plain text and / or a lot of images, for instance. The stats in the hosting Control Panel will give you detailed info about the traffic generated by every single site as well as the amount for your account altogether. The numbers are updated in real time and display both the daily and the monthly usage, therefore you will be aware of how much info is transferred to and from the website hosting account anytime. The very first day of every month the counter is reset, but you'll still be able to see the website traffic stats for the past months, that will inform you on how your web sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
The monthly site traffic quota that is featured with our dedicated server plans will suit any kind of website irrespective of its type. Your web applications can make terabytes of traffic, which warrants that all your site visitors will never see any kind of error message on your web site due to limited quota the way it can happen with various forms of web hosting. Also, we leave the possibility to upgrade the website traffic amount open, however it is highly unlikely that you'll ever need it even if you would like to operate a file sharing web site or a video streaming portal. The server administration Control Panel provides correct real-time info how much data has been transferred for the month to date, and how much is left until you reach the cap. We will also alert you when you reach 90% of the allowance in order to be on the safe side and prevent any downtime of your web sites. The data in our panel includes the full traffic, including software downloads, so that it is more accurate than the one in your web hosting Control Panel where you will be able to view details only about the traffic generated by world wide web content.
