The monthly traffic feature, that is sometimes also identified as bandwidth or information transfer, refers to the overall volume of information that is uploaded to your cloud hosting account and downloaded from it each month. The site traffic is produced mostly by website visits - when somebody visits your site, the pages they view are downloaded from your web hosting server to their computer or smartphone and they're shown by the web browser. What counts towards the web site traffic produced is the size of these webpages, hence the more site visitors you have for a period of time, the more site traffic will be produced. Along with the site visits, file uploads will also be counted towards the entire monthly transfer this means that any time you upload web site content or some other files through a file manager or an FTP software, they will also produce some site traffic. The counter resets on day one of each month and it's not related to the date you've registered or the date you've renewed your hosting package.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Hosting
All of our cloud hosting plans were created with the idea to take care of the traffic produced by any web site that can function in such an account. In case you currently have one or multiple small or medium-sized web sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly traffic quota irrespective of what content you have - plain text or perhaps plenty of images, for example. The stats inside the hosting Control Panel will give you comprehensive data about the traffic generated by each and every website as well as the total amount for the account in general. The amounts are updated in real time and display both the daily and the monthly usage, which means that you will know how much information is transferred to and from your website hosting account anytime. Day one of every month the counter is reset, but you'll be able to view the website traffic statistics for the previous months, that will show you how your web sites perform.
