The monthly website traffic function is generally referred to as info transfer or bandwidth as well, but all these names refer to the same thing - what amount of information can be transferred to and from a web hosting account. The site traffic can be produced in just two ways, the more visible one being website visits. When somebody opens your site, their browser requests and downloads the webpages from the website hosting server and then shows them on their end. The more site visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is generated from your website hosting account. As this feature contains the overall web site traffic, not only your website visits, you shouldn't forget that inward traffic is measured as well. Which means that site content along with other files that you upload to your account using a file manager or an FTP software are counted towards the account allowance. Your transfer is typically checked per month and the counter resets on the first day of every month irrespective of your actual date of signup.
Monthly Traffic in Web Hosting
All our web hosting were designed with the notion to take care of the traffic produced by any kind of web site that can function in such an account. If you currently have one or multiple small or medium-sized web sites, you won't be limited by the monthly site traffic allowance irrespective of what content you have - plain text or many images, for instance. The statistics in your hosting Control Panel provides you with in-depth details about the traffic generated by each site and the total amount for the account as a whole. The stats are updated in real time and indicate 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 your web hosting account at any moment. The first day of every month your counter is reset, but you will be able to see the traffic stats for the past months, that will give you an idea how your websites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our Linux semi-dedicated servers are pretty efficient, we have decided not to set any restriction for the monthly web site traffic that an account can generate. We believe that if you obtain a website hosting package that features a lot of computing power, your web sites will most probably have lots of visitors and as every single visitor makes some traffic, one could end up having inaccessible websites in case there was a cap for this particular characteristic. With truly unlimited website traffic, you will be sure this will never happen. To save you time, you can keep track of the info being downloaded along with the web site traffic that is generated for every single domain with monthly, daily and hourly stats that will inform you on how popular your sites are. You'll be able to even view individual web pages and files that have produced most of the site traffic in the semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
All of the VPS servers that we supply have a monthly traffic allowance proportional to the system resources they come with. The more hard disk storage space and processing power a server has, the more likely it is you'll host more web sites on it, therefore the website traffic you can use increases with each plan. In case you need extra traffic at some time, you will be able to update the plan via your billing Control Panel with just a couple of mouse-clicks and the extra resources, including the higher traffic allowance, will be added to your existing account. You'll also be able to keep track of how much information has been transferred to and from your virtual server all the time. To be on the safe side, we will inform you as early as you reach 90% of your quota in order to give you enough time to react and reduce your site traffic or update the package if required. Via your control panel, you'll be able to see the website traffic stats for each individual domain or subdomain in your VPS account.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
With a dedicated server, you will have a very powerful hosting solution at your disposal and the website traffic allowance that you will get suits all of the other features. Your server can generate terabytes of traffic monthly, thus irrespective of the kind or number of web sites that you host, you will never need to worry for them being inaccessible because of not sufficient website traffic. To be on the safe side though, we'll give you the opportunity to update this feature if required. We'll inform you well in advance if you get close to the restriction, so that you'll have the time to upgrade or lower the traffic by optimizing your data to avoid any interruption of the work of your sites. You are able to monitor the consumed and remaining website traffic for the current month through the management panel that we supply. The data there contains all incoming as well as all of the outgoing transfers, like software installations and / or updates. In comparison, a hosting Control Panel can give more detailed data, however only for the traffic to and from a web host account, not your server as a whole.
