The monthly site traffic characteristic is sometimes known as info transfer or bandwidth as well, however all of the aforementioned names refer to the same thing - what amount of information can be transferred to and from a shared website hosting account. The traffic can be generated in two ways, the more visible one being website visits. If someone goes to your web site, their browser requests and downloads the webpages from the hosting server then shows them on their end. The more site visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is generated from your hosting account. Since this particular characteristic contains the overall website traffic, not only the website visits, you should not forget that incoming traffic is measured too. Which means website content along with other files that you upload to your account with a file manager or an FTP software are counted towards your account quota. The transfer is generally tracked on a monthly basis and the counter resets on the very first day of each month whatever your actual date of signup.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Website Hosting
All of our shared website hosting plans were designed with the notion to handle the website traffic produced by any site that can function in such an account. In case you have one or a number of small or medium-sized web sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly website traffic allowance no matter what content you have - plain text or perhaps a great number of images, for instance. The statistics inside your hosting Control Panel provides you with detailed data about the website traffic generated by each and every web site along with the total amount for the account as a whole. The stats are updated live and show both the everyday and the monthly usage, so you will be aware of how much information is transferred to and from the website hosting account at any moment. The first day of every month the counter is reset, but you'll still be able to view the website traffic stats for the past months, that will show you how your web sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
The monthly website traffic feature of our semi-dedicated plans is unlimited, or as various companies advertise it, unmetered. In fact, we keep track of the volume of uploaded and downloaded content for each and every account, but we will never set any restriction, which means that your sites can grow and receive more visitors. We provide you with detailed information what is going on in the account in order to give you an opportunity to control your web sites even better and to have an idea how they perform. You will be able to monitor the traffic generated by each and every site plus the most frequently downloaded webpage or file. The stats are hourly, daily and monthly. In a ever evolving internet world, you are able to get a significant number of new site visitors with just a single advertising campaign, therefore by providing a really unlimited plan, we'll make sure that you do not lose customers due to the fact that your account cannot handle the website traffic.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated web hosting plans that we offer come with great site traffic allowances that are sufficient for any kind of website, even a video streaming portal or a well-liked online community. Terabytes of traffic will be available to you every month and the control panel that comes with each dedicated server will give you information how much information has been transferred already and what amount is left for the current month. To avoid service interruptions, we'll notify you as soon as you reach 90% of the quota and you can either decrease the website traffic generated by your websites by optimizing their content, or you'll be able to increase the quota for your account. It is highly unlikely that you will ever need such an improvement, but we chose to leave this option open. The stats in that panel contain the entire website traffic, in contrast to the data from your hosting Control Panel where you will find only the traffic from websites, but not from server-side software downloads and / or updates.
