The monthly site traffic characteristic is generally known as data transfer or bandwidth as well, but all of the abovementioned terms refer to the same thing - the amount of info can be transferred to and from your hosting account. The traffic can be generated in two ways, the more obvious one being site visits. When someone goes to your website, their browser requests and downloads the pages from the website hosting server and then shows them on their end. The more site visitors you have, the more outgoing traffic is produced from your web hosting account. Since this characteristic includes the entire website traffic, not just the site visits, you shouldn't forget that inward traffic is measured too. Which means that site content and various other files that you upload to the account through a file manager or an FTP software are counted towards the account quota. Your transfer is typically tracked per month and the counter resets on the first day of every month whatever your actual date of signup.
Monthly Traffic in Hosting
Our Linux hosting were designed with the concept to take care of the website traffic made by any web site that can run in such an account. In case you currently have one or a number of small or medium-sized websites, you'll not be limited by the monthly site traffic allowance no matter what content you may have - plain text or plenty of images, for example. The stats inside your hosting Control Panel will provide you with in-depth details about the site traffic generated by every single site plus the total amount for your account in general. The figures are updated live and display both the everyday and the monthly usage, so you'll know how much info is transferred to and from your hosting account anytime. The very first day of each and every month your counter is reset, but you'll still be able to view the site traffic stats for the past months, which will give you an idea how your web sites perform.
