The monthly web site traffic characteristic is sometimes referred to as information transfer or bandwidth as well, but all these terms apply to the very same thing - the amount of info can be transferred to and from a cloud website hosting account. The site traffic can be generated in just two ways, the more noticeable one being website visits. If someone visits your web site, their Internet browser requests and downloads the web pages from your hosting server and then displays them on their end. The more website visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is produced from your hosting account. Due to the fact that this particular feature includes the whole site traffic, not only the site visits, you shouldn't forget that incoming traffic is measured as well. This means web site content along with other files that you upload to your account with a file manager or an FTP program are counted towards your account allowance. The transfer is typically checked on a monthly basis and the counter resets on the first day of each and every month irrespective of your actual registration date.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Website Hosting
All our Linux cloud website hosting packages are designed with the notion to take care of the site traffic generated by any type of website that can exist in such an account. In case you currently have one or a few different small-scale or medium-sized web sites, you will not be limited by the monthly site traffic quota no matter what content you may have - plain text or perhaps numerous images, for instance. The stats inside your hosting Control Panel will give you comprehensive data about the site traffic produced by every single website along with the total amount for the account altogether. The figures are updated in real time and show both the daily and the monthly usage, so you'll be aware of how much data is transferred to and from your hosting account at any time. Day one of every month the counter is reset, but you'll still be able to see the web site traffic statistics for the past months, that will inform you on how your sites perform.
