Learn what hosting providers really mean whenever they say ‘monthly traffic quotas’.
When any data is uploaded to a hosting account or downloaded from it, web site traffic is generated and this is an aspect that each and every hosting plan has. It's moreover among the characteristics you need to check, as what amount of website traffic allowance you will need depends upon the things you need the account for. The traffic is mainly produced by downloads and this includes web site visits. In layman's terms, each time somebody visits your website, the webpages are downloaded from the server to their computer system and they're subsequently shown by their web browser. It's of course important to be aware that uploads are considered as well, so that when you transfer large files from your pc to the server, some site traffic will be generated too. Different suppliers often have different names for this particular feature, for instance traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, still all of them refer to the same thing - the amount of incoming and outgoing information generated for a given period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Hosting
All of our Linux hosting packages are designed with the idea to take care of the site traffic generated by any kind of site that can function in such an account. If you have one or a number of small-scale or medium-sized web sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly website traffic quota regardless of what content you may have - plain text or perhaps numerous images, for instance. The statistics inside your hosting Control Panel will give you comprehensive information about the website traffic produced by each and every web site and the total amount for your account as a whole. The figures are updated live and display both the everyday and the monthly usage, which means that you will be aware of how much information is transferred to and from your web hosting account at any time. The first day of each and every month your counter is reset, but you will still be able to view the website traffic statistics for the previous months, which will inform you on how your web sites perform.
