What do web hosts mean by saying ?monthly traffic??
Every time any content is uploaded to a website hosting account or downloaded from it, some web site traffic is generated and that is a characteristic that each and every hosting plan comes with. It's furthermore one of the attributes it is important to check out, because how much traffic quota you will need is based on the things you need the account for. The web site traffic is generally generated by downloads and this includes site visits. Basically, every time somebody opens your website, the web pages are downloaded from the server on his/her computer system and they are then displayed by their web browser. It's also recommendable to know that uploads count too, therefore any time you duplicate bigger files from your pc to the server, some site traffic will be generated too. Different suppliers sometimes have different names for this feature, for instance traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, but all of them apply to the very same thing - the amount of incoming and outgoing data generated for a period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
are designed with the notion to take care of the site traffic generated by any type of web site that can exist in such an account. When you own one or multiple small-scale or medium-sized sites, you will not be limited by the monthly website traffic allowance irrespective of what content you have - plain text or a great number of images, for example. The stats in your hosting Control Panel provides you with comprehensive info about the site traffic produced by every single site plus the total amount for your account altogether. The numbers are updated in real time and display both the daily and the monthly usage, so you'll be aware of how much information is transferred to and from the web hosting account at any time. Day one of every month the counter is reset, but you will be able to view the web site traffic stats for the previous months, which will show you how your websites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering the fact that our semi-dedicated servers
are very powerful, we have made the decision not to put any limit for the monthly website traffic that a given account can produce. We believe that if you buy a hosting plan that features a lot of computing power, your websites will probably have numerous visitors and since every visitor makes some website traffic, one can end up getting unavailable web sites if there is a limit for this particular feature. With truly unlimited website traffic, you can be sure this can never happen. To save you time, you'll be able to keep track of the content being downloaded and the traffic that is generated for each individual domain with hourly, daily and monthly stats that will give you an idea how popular your websites are. You will be able to even see particular web pages and files which have produced the most traffic in the semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers
that we supply come with great traffic quotas that are sufficient for any kind of web site, even a video streaming portal or a well-liked online social network. Terabytes of website traffic will be available each month and the management panel that is included with each dedicated server will give you information what amount of information has been transferred already and what amount is available for the current month. In order to avoid service interruptions, we will let you know when you reach 90% of the quota and you'll be able to either lower the site traffic made by your web sites by optimizing their content, or you can increase the allowance for your account. It's extremely unlikely that you will ever need such an upgrade, yet we prefer to leave this option open. The statistics in that panel feature the overall site traffic, compared to the info from your hosting Control Panel where you will find only the traffic from websites, but not from server-side software downloads & updates.
