The monthly traffic characteristic, that is sometimes also called bandwidth or data transfer, refers to the full amount of information which is uploaded to your cloud website hosting account and downloaded from it each month. Your site traffic is generated mostly by website visits - when someone goes to your site, the webpages they see are downloaded from the hosting server to his or her machine or mobile device and they're displayed by the internet browser. What counts for the site traffic generated is the overall size of these web pages, hence the more website visitors you have for a given period of time, the more website traffic will be produced. Along with the web site visits, file uploads will also be counted towards the total monthly transfer i.e. when you upload website content or other files using a file manager or an FTP program, they'll also produce some traffic. The counter resets on the first day of every month and it's not related to the date you've registered as well as the date you've renewed your website hosting package.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages can host a number of resource-demanding websites as they come with a lot of processing power. Such sites constantly generate a lot of site traffic and because of this we have made the decision not to limit this feature. When you have a semi-dedicated server, you'll be able to have as many website visitors as you are able to get without having to worry that you'll reach a restriction for the site traffic they will generate. To save you time, you can keep track of what is going on in your account because we will supply you with hourly, daily and monthly stats for the web site traffic your web sites generate. As a result, you will have an idea of how they perform any time. You will even be able to observe which webpage or file has generated most of the traffic for every single site in your semi-dedicated server account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
With every VPS server plan that you can find here, we offer a distinct monthly traffic allowance that depends on how powerful the server is. In this way, we're able to keep our lower-end plans less expensive and give you the option to select the package you need in accordance with your budget plus your resource needs. Upgrading from one plan to another is really simple and usually takes just a few clicks in your VPS billing Control Panel, consequently if you start to get more site visitors at some point so you need a higher traffic quota, you'll be able to move to a better package at any time. We will notify you in case you reach 90% of your monthly quota, therefore you'll have sufficient time either to update or to optimise your sites, so as to lower the outgoing website traffic. Our VPS packages also include a server administration panel where you can see how much site traffic has already been used for the current month and exactly how much is left until you get to the quota limit.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated web hosting plans that we offer you come with great traffic quotas that are enough for any kind of web site, even a video streaming portal or a popular online social network. Terabytes of site traffic will be at your disposal every month and the management panel that is featured with each dedicated server will give you information how much data has been transferred already and what amount is left for the current month. In order to avoid service interruptions, we'll let you know if you reach 90% of your quota and you can either decrease the website traffic generated by your web sites by optimizing their data, or you may increase the quota for your account. It's highly unlikely that you'll ever need such an improvement, still we prefer to leave this alternative open. The statistics in that panel contain the full traffic, compared to the data from your hosting Control Panel where you can find only the traffic from web sites, but not from server-side software downloads & updates.
