What do hosting providers imply by stating ?monthly traffic??
The monthly traffic feature, that’s at times also referred to as bandwidth or information transfer, refers to the total volume of data which can be uploaded to your web hosting account and downloaded from it each month. Your site traffic is produced primarily by web site visits - when someone comes across your website, the pages they view are downloaded from the hosting server to their machine or mobile device and they're shown by the browser. What counts for the traffic generated is the overall size of these web pages, therefore the more website visitors you get for some period of time, the more traffic will be generated. In addition to the website visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer which means that whenever you upload web site content as well as other files through a file manager or an FTP software, they will also produce some traffic. The counter resets on the first day of each and every month and it is not related to the date you have subscribed as well as the date you have renewed your website hosting package.
Monthly Traffic in Web Hosting
All of our web hosting
are designed with the concept to take care of the website traffic made by any website that can function in such an account. In case you own one or a couple of small-scale or medium-sized websites, you'll not be limited by the monthly site traffic allowance irrespective of what content you have - plain text or numerous images, for instance. The stats in your hosting Control Panel will give you in-depth info about the site traffic generated by each web site as well as the amount for the account altogether. The figures are updated live and show both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, thus you'll be aware of how much data is transferred to and from the website hosting account anytime. The first day of each month your counter is reset, but you will be able to view the traffic stats for the past months, that will give you an idea how your websites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated servers
are pretty powerful, we've made the decision not to set any limit for the monthly site traffic that an account can produce. We believe that if you purchase a hosting package that comes with a lot of processing power, your sites will probably have a lot of visitors and given that every single visitor makes a part of the site traffic, one can end up having unavailable sites if there is some cap for this particular feature. With truly unrestricted site traffic, you will be sure this cannot happen. For your benefit, you'll be able to monitor the content being downloaded along with the website traffic that is generated for every single domain with hourly, daily and monthly statistics that will give you an idea how popular your web sites are. You can even see individual web pages and files which have produced most of the site traffic in your semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
All of the VPS servers
that we provide have a monthly traffic quota proportionate to the resources they come with. The more hard disk space and processing power a server provides, the more probable it is that you'll host more websites on it, therefore the site traffic you can use increases with every plan. Should you need additional traffic at some time, you'll be able to upgrade the plan from your billing Control Panel with no more than a couple of clicks and the additional resources, including the greater traffic allowance, will be added to your existing account. You'll also be able to check how much data has been transferred to and from your virtual server at any moment. For your convenience, we'll update you as soon as you reach 90% of the quota in order to provide you with enough time to take action and lower the website traffic or upgrade your package if necessary. Via your control panel, you can see the traffic statistics for each individual domain or subdomain in your VPS account.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
With a dedicated server
, you'll have an extremely powerful hosting system at your disposal and the site traffic allowance that you will get suits all of the other features. The server can make terabytes of traffic each month, therefore regardless of the kind or number of sites that you host, you'll never need to worry for them being inaccessible as a result of not sufficient traffic. To be on the safe side however, we'll give you the opportunity to improve this feature if required. We'll inform you in advance if you get close to the limit, so that you will have the time to update or reduce the traffic by optimizing your info and avoid any interruption of the work of your sites. You can view the consumed and remaining site traffic for the current month from the control panel that we supply. The data there includes all the incoming as well as all the outgoing transfers, such as software setups and / or updates. In comparison, a hosting Control Panel provides more detailed data, but only for the traffic to and from a hosting account, not your server altogether.
