The monthly traffic characteristic, that’s at times also called bandwidth or data transfer, indicates the total volume of info that can be uploaded to your website hosting account and downloaded from it each month. Your website traffic is generated mostly by website visits - every time somebody loads your website, the pages they view are downloaded from your hosting server to his or her computer system or mobile device and they're displayed by the web browser. What counts for the site traffic generated is the size of these webpages, therefore the more visitors you have for a given period of time, the more site traffic will be produced. In addition to the site visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer i.e. if you upload website content or other files with a file manager or an FTP application, they'll also produce some website traffic. The counter resets on the first day of each and every month and it is not related to the date you have subscribed or the date you've renewed your web hosting plan.
Monthly Traffic in Website Hosting
All our Linux website hosting packages were created with the notion to take care of the traffic produced by any kind of web site that can run in such an account. When you own one or a few different small-scale or medium-sized sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly website traffic quota whatever the content you have - plain text or perhaps plenty of images, for instance. The stats inside the hosting Control Panel will give you elaborate information about the website traffic produced by every single site plus the amount for your account altogether. The amounts are updated in real time and show both the daily and the monthly usage, so you'll be aware of how much info is transferred to and from the hosting account anytime. The very first day of each month the counter is reset, but you will be able to see the web site traffic statistics for the previous months, that will give you an idea how your web sites perform.
