The monthly traffic characteristic, that’s sometimes also called bandwidth or data transfer, identifies the overall amount of info which can be uploaded to your cloud web hosting account and downloaded from it every month. The website traffic is generated generally by web site visits - when someone finds your web site, the webpages they see are downloaded from the website hosting server to his / her machine or smartphone and they are displayed by the browser. What counts towards the traffic generated is the size of these pages, so the more site visitors you have for some period of time, the more site traffic will be produced. Along with the site visits, file uploads will also be counted towards the total monthly transfer this means that if you upload web site content as well as other files using a file manager or an FTP software, they'll also generate some traffic. The counter resets on day one of every month and it is not related to the date you've signed up or the date you've renewed your web hosting plan.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Web Hosting
Our Linux cloud web hosting were created with the concept to handle the traffic produced by any type of site that can exist in such an account. In case you own one or a couple of small-scale or medium-sized sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly traffic quota whatever the content you have - plain text and / or a lot of images, for instance. The statistics inside the hosting Control Panel will provide you with detailed details about the traffic generated by each web site and the amount for the account altogether. The figures are updated in real time and indicate both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, which means that you will be aware of how much data is transferred to and from the hosting account at any moment. The first day of each month the counter is reset, but you'll still be able to see the traffic stats for the previous months, which will inform you on how your web sites perform.
