The monthly traffic characteristic, which is sometimes also referred to as bandwidth or data transfer, refers to the overall amount of info which is uploaded to your cloud hosting account and downloaded from it each month. The website traffic is produced generally by web site visits - whenever someone loads your site, the web pages they see are downloaded from your website hosting server to their computer or mobile device and they're shown by the browser. What counts towards the site traffic produced is the size of these pages, consequently the more site visitors you have for a given period of time, the more website traffic will be produced. Along with the website visits, file uploads will also be counted towards the total monthly transfer i.e. if you upload web site content or any other files through a file manager or an FTP program, they'll also generate some site traffic. The counter resets on day one of every month and it is not related to the date you've registered and the date you have renewed the hosting package.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Hosting
All our cloud hosting plans are designed with the concept to take care of the website traffic generated by any web site that can function in such an account. When you currently have one or a couple of small or medium-sized web sites, you won't be limited by the monthly traffic allowance regardless of what content you have - plain text or perhaps plenty of images, for example. The statistics inside the hosting Control Panel provides you with comprehensive data about the traffic produced by each and every web site plus the total amount for your account in general. The amounts are updated in real time and show both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, so you'll be aware of how much data is transferred to and from your website hosting account at any moment. Day one of each month your counter is reset, but you'll be able to view the web site traffic statistics for the previous months, that will show you how your web sites perform.
