The monthly traffic feature, which is at times also identified as bandwidth or info transfer, indicates the overall volume of information that is uploaded to your web hosting account and downloaded from it every month. Your site traffic is produced mostly by web site visits - when somebody finds your web site, the web pages they view are downloaded from the web hosting server to their machine or mobile device and they are displayed by the web browser. What counts for the traffic produced is the size of these webpages, so the more visitors you have for a period of time, the more traffic will be produced. Along with the site visits, file uploads are also counted towards the entire monthly transfer i.e. whenever you upload web site content or any other files by using a file manager or an FTP software, they'll also produce some site traffic. The counter resets on the first day of every month and it's not related to the date you've subscribed as well as the date you've renewed your web hosting plan.
Monthly Traffic in Web Hosting
All our Linux web hosting were created with the notion to take care of the traffic generated by any kind of web site that can function in such an account. When you have one or a number of small or medium-sized websites, you won't be limited by the monthly site traffic quota whatever the content you have - plain text or plenty of images, for example. The statistics in the hosting Control Panel provides you with elaborate data about the traffic generated by each and every web site plus the amount for the account altogether. The statistics are updated live and display both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, which means that you'll be aware of how much info is transferred to and from the website hosting account at any time. The very first day of every month your counter is reset, but you'll be able to see the traffic stats for the previous months, which will give you an idea how your sites perform.
