What do hosting providers mean by stating ?monthly traffic??
The monthly traffic characteristic, which is at times also referred to as bandwidth or data transfer, refers to the full volume of information that is uploaded to your cloud hosting account and downloaded from it each month. Your website traffic is generated mainly by web site visits - every time somebody finds your site, the webpages they see are downloaded from your website hosting server to his or her computer system or mobile device and they're displayed by the web browser. What counts for the website traffic produced is the size of these pages, so the more visitors you get for some period of time, the more site traffic will be produced. Along with the web site visits, file uploads will also be counted towards the total monthly transfer which means that whenever you upload site content or any other files by using a file manager or an FTP software, they will also generate some traffic. The counter resets on day one of every month and it is not related to the date you've subscribed as well as the date you have renewed the hosting package.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Hosting
All of our Linux cloud hosting packages
are designed with the concept to take care of the traffic made by any kind of web site that can run in such an account. When you currently have one or a number of small or medium-sized web sites, you will not be limited by the monthly website traffic allowance regardless of what content you may have - plain text or a great number of images, for instance. The statistics in your hosting Control Panel gives you comprehensive info about the site traffic generated by every single web site as well as the amount for your account in general. The numbers are updated in real time and indicate both the everyday and the monthly usage, which means that you will be aware of how much info is transferred to and from the website hosting account at any moment. The first day of each month the counter is reset, but you'll be able to see the traffic stats for the previous months, that will give you an idea how your sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
are pretty powerful, we have made the decision not to put any kind of restriction for the monthly site traffic that a given account can produce. It is our understanding that if you purchase a hosting plan that features a lot of computing power, your web sites will most likely have lots of visitors and given that every single visitor generates a part of the website traffic, one may end up having inaccessible sites if there was some cap for this particular feature. With truly unlimited traffic, you will be sure this will never happen. For your benefit, you'll be able to keep track of the information being downloaded along with the website traffic that is generated for each individual domain with hourly, daily and monthly stats that will give you an idea how popular your websites are. You'll be able to even view unique web pages and files which have generated the most traffic in the semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Web Hosting
The monthly site traffic quota for our Linux VPS web hosting packages
is proportionate to all of the other server’s resources. If you get a more powerful server, it's likely that you'll host a well-known website or even several web sites, therefore there will be more site visitors. That's why, the greater package you order, the greater monthly site traffic quota you'll have. We will inform you when you get to 90% of that amount, to make sure you have sufficient time to take some action and either improve your plan or optimize your websites and reduce the site traffic that they make before the counter resets the subsequent month. When you decide to upgrade, you can do so via the billing Control Panel and with only a few clicks. In addition, you'll be able to monitor what amount of site traffic your server has already generated and the amount that is left until you get to your monthly limit. This information will be accessible in the VPS administration panel where you're also able to reboot your server and view the use of all other resources such as HDD space, CPU load or physical memory usage.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The monthly traffic quota that comes with our dedicated server
packages is sufficient for any type of site whatever its type. Your web apps can produce terabytes of traffic, which warrants that all your site visitors will never notice any kind of error message on your website a consequence of limited allowance like it may happen with other kinds of website hosting. We also leave the possibility to upgrade your website traffic amount open, however it's very unlikely that you will ever need it even if you want to operate a file sharing website or a video streaming portal. The server administration Control Panel will provide you with precise real-time information what amount of data has been transmitted for the month so far, and how much remains until you get to the restriction. We will also notify you any time you reach 90% of the allowance just to be on the safe side and prevent any downtime of your sites. The information in the panel includes the total traffic, including software downloads, so that it is more precise than the one in your website hosting Control Panel where you are able to view details only about the visitors developed by online content.
