The monthly traffic characteristic, that’s sometimes also referred to as bandwidth or information transfer, identifies the overall volume of information that can be uploaded to your shared website hosting account and downloaded from it each month. The site traffic is produced generally by website visits - whenever someone comes across your site, the web pages they see are downloaded from the hosting server to his or her computer or mobile device and they are displayed by the browser. What counts for the web site traffic generated is the overall size of these webpages, thus the more visitors you have for a given period of time, the more site traffic will be generated. In addition to the website visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer this means that any time you upload web site content or some other files by using a file manager or an FTP software, they will also generate some website traffic. The counter resets on day one of each and every month and it is not related to the date you've signed up and the date you have renewed the web hosting package.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our Linux semi-dedicated packages are quite effective, we have decided not to set any type of limit for the monthly web site traffic that an account can produce. We consider that if you buy a hosting package that features a great deal of processing power, your web sites will most probably have numerous visitors and since each visitor produces certain website traffic, one may end up having unavailable websites in case there was some limit for this particular characteristic. With truly unlimited site traffic, you can be sure this can never happen. For your benefit, you will be able to keep track of the information being downloaded in addition to the web site traffic that is generated for each domain with monthly, daily and hourly statistics that will give you an idea how popular your websites are. You can even see individual webpages and files which have made most of the site traffic in the semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Web Hosting
The monthly site traffic quota which comes with our dedicated server packages will suit any type of web site regardless of its type. Your web apps can make terabytes of traffic, which ensures that all of your site visitors will never notice any type of error message on your site a consequence of insufficient quota like it can happen with various other types of website hosting. We also leave the possibility to upgrade the traffic amount open, but it's highly unlikely that you will ever need it even if you want to operate a file sharing web site or a video streaming portal. The server administration Control Panel provides accurate real-time info what amount of data has been transmitted for the month so far, and how much is left before you reach the cap. We will also inform you once you reach 90% of the quota so as to be on the safe side and avoid any downtime of your sites. The information in this panel includes the full traffic, including software downloads, so it's more accurate than the one in your current web hosting Control Panel where you'll be able to view details only about the traffic generated by web content.
