The monthly traffic feature, that’s sometimes also referred to as bandwidth or information transfer, refers to the full volume of info that is uploaded to your hosting account and downloaded from it monthly. Your website traffic is generated mostly by website visits - each time someone visits your web site, the pages they see are downloaded from the web hosting server to their computer or smartphone and they are displayed by the web browser. What counts towards the site traffic produced is the size of these pages, as a result the more website visitors you get for some period of time, the more web site traffic will be produced. In addition to the website visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer i.e. if you upload website content as well as other files using a file manager or an FTP program, they will also produce some traffic. The counter resets on the very first day of each month and it's not related to the date you've registered as well as the date you have renewed the hosting package.
Monthly Traffic in Hosting
All of our Linux hosting packages are designed with the notion to handle the website traffic made by any type of web site that can exist in such an account. When you currently have one or multiple small-scale or medium-sized websites, you will not be limited by the monthly traffic quota whatever the content you have - plain text or perhaps a great number of images, for instance. The statistics in the hosting Control Panel will provide you with detailed info about the site traffic generated by every single website along with the amount for your account altogether. The numbers are updated in real time and indicate both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, therefore you will know how much data is transferred to and from the hosting account anytime. The first day of each month your counter is reset, but you will be able to view the site traffic stats for the previous months, that will inform you on how your sites perform.
