The monthly website traffic function is usually called info transfer or bandwidth as well, yet all of these terms have to do with the very same thing - what amount of information can be transferred to and from your cloud web hosting account. The web site traffic can be produced in just two ways, the more visible one being web site visits. When somebody loads your web site, their browser requests and downloads the web pages from the hosting server and then displays them on their end. The more site visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is generated from your web hosting account. Considering that this feature contains the overall site traffic, not only your website visits, you shouldn't forget that inward traffic is counted too. This means web site content as well as other files that you upload to your account through a file manager or an FTP software are counted towards the account quota. The transfer is generally monitored every month and the counter resets on the very first day of every month whatever your actual date of signup.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Web Hosting
Our Linux cloud web hosting packages were designed with the notion to handle the site traffic generated by any type of website that can function in such an account. When you have one or a number of small or medium-sized sites, you will not be limited by the monthly website traffic allowance regardless of what content you may have - plain text and / or lots of images, for example. The stats in the hosting Control Panel gives you in-depth information about the traffic produced by every single site and the amount for your account as a whole. The amounts are updated live and display both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, so that you will know how much information is transferred to and from your web hosting account at any moment. The very first day of every month your counter is reset, but you will be able to view the web site traffic stats for the previous months, that will give you an idea how your sites perform.
