What do web hosting providers imply by saying ?monthly traffic??
The monthly traffic characteristic, that is at times also called bandwidth or information transfer, identifies the overall volume of information which is uploaded to your cloud website hosting account and downloaded from it monthly. The site traffic is produced mostly by website visits - whenever someone loads your website, the pages they see are downloaded from your hosting server to his / her machine or smartphone and they are displayed by the internet browser. What counts for the website traffic generated is the size of these pages, so the more website visitors you get for some period of time, the more website traffic will be generated. In addition to the site visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer which means that if you upload site content or some other files through a file manager or an FTP software, they'll also generate some traffic. The counter resets on day one of each 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 Website Hosting
All of our Linux cloud website hosting
were designed with the notion to handle the website traffic generated by any website that can exist in such an account. If you own one or a couple of small or medium-sized sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly website traffic allowance irrespective of what content you have - plain text and / or a great number of images, for instance. The statistics in the hosting Control Panel will provide you with elaborate data about the website traffic produced by each and every site plus the total amount for the account altogether. The statistics are updated live and show both the everyday and the monthly usage, which means that you'll know how much info is transferred to and from your hosting account at any moment. The very first day of each month your counter is reset, but you will still be able to view the web site traffic stats for the previous months, which will show you how your web sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services
are quite effective, we have made the decision not to set any kind of restriction for the monthly traffic that an account can produce. We believe that if you get a hosting plan that comes with a lot of processing power, your sites will most probably have a lot of visitors and given that each and every visitor produces some website traffic, one can end up getting unavailable websites if there was some restriction for this particular feature. With truly unlimited traffic, you can be sure this cannot happen. For your benefit, you will be able to monitor the data being downloaded in addition to the website traffic that is generated for each individual domain with hourly, daily and monthly numbers that will give you an idea how popular your web sites are. You can even see unique web pages and files that have generated the most traffic in the semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS
The monthly site traffic quota you'll get with our VPS
is sufficient for any kind of web site and it's proportional to all the rest of the system resources that come with each and every package. With a more powerful server, you can run a wide range of sites or a few very popular web sites, thus the traffic allowance for the superior packages is also increased. In case you start with a low-end VPS package, you can easily enhance it at any time with several mouse-clicks from your billing Control Panel and then the additional resources will be added to your present account, together with the added traffic quota. Our VPS accounts feature a server management panel where you will be able to monitor the used and remaining site traffic for the current month as well as all the other resources. Furthermore, we send announcements when you reach 90% of the limit, so that you'll have enough time to react and upgrade if necessary.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Hosting
The Linux dedicated hosting services
that we supply include tremendous site traffic quotas that are sufficient for any type of site, even a video streaming portal or a popular online community. Terabytes of website traffic will be available to you each month and the control panel that is included with each dedicated server will give you information how much info has been transferred already and how much is available for the current month. In order to avoid service disruptions, we will inform you whenever you reach 90% of your allowance and you're able to either lower the site traffic made by your sites by optimizing their data, or you can increase the allowance for your account. It's extremely unlikely that you will ever need such an enhancement, still we decided to leave this option open. The statistics in that panel include the overall website traffic, compared to the information inside your hosting Control Panel where you can find only the traffic from websites, but not from server-side software downloads and / or updates.
