The monthly web site traffic function is sometimes known as information transfer or bandwidth as well, yet all these terms have to do with the same thing - the amount of data can be transferred to and from your cloud hosting account. The site traffic can be produced in two ways, the more noticeable one being site visits. If someone goes to your website, their web browser requests and downloads the webpages from the website hosting server and then shows them on their end. The more website visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is produced from your web hosting account. Due to the fact that this particular feature includes the total site traffic, not only the site visits, you should not forget that incoming traffic is counted too. Which means that web site content along with other files that you upload to your account with a file manager or an FTP program are counted towards the account quota. The transfer is typically monitored monthly and the counter resets on the first day of each month whatever your actual signup date.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Hosting
All our cloud hosting plans were designed with the concept to handle the website traffic generated by any type of website that can function in such an account. When you currently have one or multiple small-scale or medium-sized websites, you'll not be limited by the monthly traffic allowance whatever the content you have - plain text or perhaps many images, for example. The stats in your hosting Control Panel will give you detailed info about the traffic produced by each and every website along with the amount for the account in general. The amounts are updated live and indicate both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, which means that you'll know how much information is transferred to and from the web hosting account anytime. The first day of each month your counter is reset, but you'll be able to view the web site traffic statistics for the previous months, which will give you an idea how your web sites perform.
