The monthly web site traffic characteristic is sometimes referred to as information transfer or bandwidth as well, however all of these terms apply to the same thing - the amount of data can be transferred to and from your shared website hosting account. The web site traffic can be produced in two ways, the more noticeable one being site visits. If somebody opens your site, their Internet browser requests and downloads the pages from your website hosting server and then displays them on their end. The more website visitors you have, the more outgoing traffic is produced from your hosting account. Because this feature contains the overall web site traffic, not only your website visits, you should not forget that incoming traffic is counted as well. Which means web site content as well as other files that you upload to the account through a file manager or an FTP software are counted towards your account allowance. Your transfer is usually checked on a monthly basis and the counter resets on the very first day of every month irrespective of your actual registration date.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Website Hosting
All our Linux shared website hosting packages were designed with the notion to take care of the site traffic produced by any kind of web site that can run in such an account. In case you own one or several small-scale or medium-sized sites, you won't be limited by the monthly website traffic quota no matter what content you have - plain text and / or many images, for instance. The statistics inside your hosting Control Panel provides you with detailed details about the website traffic generated by each and every website plus the total amount for your account in general. The stats are updated in real time and show both the everyday and the monthly usage, so you'll be aware of how much info is transferred to and from the website hosting account at any time. The first day of each and every month the counter is reset, but you'll be able to see the traffic stats for the past months, which will give you an idea how your web sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Web Hosting
The monthly website traffic allowance that you will get with our Linux VPS web hosting packages is enough for any type of site and it's proportional to all the rest of the system resources that are included with each and every package. When you use a more powerful server, you can operate numerous web sites or a few popular web sites, thus the website traffic allowance for the superior packages is also larger. In case you choose a low-end VPS plan, you'll be able to upgrade at any time with just a few clicks through your billing Control Panel and the additional resources will be allocated to your existing account, together with the added website traffic quota. All the VPS accounts are provided with a server management panel where you have the option to keep track of the used and remaining traffic for the current month as well as all other system resources. Furthermore, we send notifications once you get to 90% of your limit, so that you will have sufficient time to react and upgrade if necessary.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Using a dedicated server, you will have a very efficient website hosting product at your disposal and the website traffic allowance you will get suits the rest of the characteristics. Your server can produce terabytes of site traffic every month, therefore whatever the kind or amount of web sites that you host, you'll never have to worry for them being not available due to not sufficient website traffic. To be on the safe side however, we'll give you the opportunity to upgrade this feature if needed. We'll inform you well in advance if you get close to the restriction, so that you'll have the chance to upgrade or decrease the website traffic by optimizing your data to avoid any disruption of the work of your web sites. You can view the used and remaining traffic for the present month through the control panel that we supply. The information there features all the incoming as well as all of the outgoing transfers, including software installations and / or updates. In contrast, a hosting Control Panel can give more detailed information, but only for the site traffic to and from a web host account, not your server as a whole.
