When any content is uploaded to a cloud website hosting account or downloaded using it, some web site traffic is generated and this is an aspect that each hosting package includes. It's moreover among the characteristics it is important to check, since what amount of traffic allowance you'll need will depend on the things you need the account for. The site traffic is mostly generated by downloads including site visits. In layman's terms, each time someone visits your site, the webpages are downloaded from the server to their computer system and they're afterwards displayed by their internet browser. It's also important to be aware that uploads are considered too, therefore every time you copy large files from your computer system to the server, some traffic will be generated too. Different companies often have different names for this feature, like traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, yet all of them apply to the exact same thing - the total amount of incoming & outgoing info created for a given period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Website Hosting
All our Linux cloud website hosting were designed with the idea to handle the site traffic generated by any type of web site that can function in such an account. In case you own one or a couple of small or medium-sized sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly site traffic allowance no matter what content you have - plain text and / or a lot of images, for instance. The statistics in your hosting Control Panel provides you with elaborate info about the traffic produced by each and every site plus the total amount for the account in general. The figures are updated in real time and display both the everyday and the monthly usage, thus 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 site traffic stats for the previous months, which will inform you on how your sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Hosting
With a dedicated server, you will have a very powerful hosting system at your disposal and the website traffic allowance that you will get suits the rest of the characteristics. The server will be able to generate terabytes of website traffic every month, therefore whatever the kind or number of web sites that you host, you'll never have to worry for them being not available as a result of not sufficient site traffic. To be on the safe side though, we'll give you the opportunity to improve this feature if required. We'll inform you well ahead of time if you get close to the restriction, so you'll have the time to update or lower your traffic by optimizing your content in order to avoid any interruption of the work of your web sites. You can monitor the used and remaining traffic for the current month from the control panel that we provide. The info there features all the incoming as well as all the outgoing transfers, including software setups and / or updates. In contrast, a hosting Control Panel can give more detailed data, but only for the site traffic to and from a hosting account, not your server altogether.
