The monthly traffic characteristic, that is at times also identified as bandwidth or info transfer, refers to the full volume of information that is uploaded to your hosting account and downloaded from it each month. The traffic is generated mainly by site visits - whenever someone finds your site, the webpages they see are downloaded from your web hosting server to their machine or smartphone and they are displayed by the web browser. What counts for the web site traffic generated is the size of these pages, consequently the more website visitors you have for a given period of time, the more website traffic will be produced. In addition to the site visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer this means that any time you upload web site content or any other files using a file manager or an FTP software, they will also generate some site traffic. The counter resets on the first day of every month and it is not related to the date you've registered and the date you've renewed the hosting package.

Monthly Traffic in Hosting

All of our Linux hosting services were designed with the idea to handle the site traffic generated by any website that can function in such an account. If you currently have one or a couple of small or medium-sized sites, you won't be limited by the monthly traffic allowance no matter what content you may have - plain text and / or numerous images, for instance. The statistics in your hosting Control Panel provides you with comprehensive information about the traffic produced by each and every website and the total amount for the account as a whole. The amounts are updated in real time and indicate both the everyday and the monthly usage, thus you'll know how much information is transferred to and from the hosting account anytime. Day one of each month your counter is reset, but you will still be able to see the web site traffic stats for the previous months, which will show you how your sites perform.

Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our semi-dedicated services are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any kind of restriction for the monthly web site traffic that an account can produce. We consider that if you obtain a hosting plan that includes a lot of computing power, your web sites will most probably have plenty of visitors and as every visitor produces some traffic, you could end up having unavailable web sites in case there was a limit for this particular feature. With truly unlimited site traffic, you can be sure this will never happen. To save you time, you can monitor the info being downloaded as well as the web site traffic that is generated for each domain with monthly, daily and hourly stats that will inform you on how popular your web sites are. You will be able to even see the pages and files which have produced the most site traffic in the semi-dedicated account.

Monthly Traffic in VPS Hosting

With each virtual private server package that we offer, we supply a distinct monthly site traffic quota that depends on how powerful your server is. In this way, we're able to keep our lower-end packages less expensive and provide you with the option to select the plan you really need based on your budget and your resource requirements. Updating from one plan to another is pretty simple and usually takes just a few clicks in your VPS billing Control Panel, thus when you start to get more site visitors at some point so you need an increased site traffic quota, you can transfer to a greater plan anytime. We'll inform you when you reach 90% of your monthly allowance, thus you'll have the required time either to update or to optimise your sites, in order to lower the outgoing site traffic. The VPS packages also feature a server administration panel where you can see how much site traffic has already been used for the present month and exactly how much is left until you reach the quota cap.

Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Web Hosting

Taking into account how powerful all of our dedicated hosting services are, the data transfer that you'll get every month will be enough for any type of site whatever the amount of its visitors, even if you supply image or file hosting. You will get an allowance of terabytes of website traffic every single month and because you will not share the server with anybody else, that quota will be available only for your web sites and web apps. We'll inform you the moment you reach 90% of the quota therefore you will be able to react and either optimize your websites to reduce the site traffic they make, or increase the limit. It is highly unlikely that you'll ever need more than what we'll provide, yet we will not stop the development of your websites, so we leave the option to include extra traffic open. The dedicated server packages come with a control panel where you can see the amount of website traffic has been generated so far for the present month and the amount that is left until you get to the limit. Considering that these figures feature software installations as well as any updates, they're more accurate as compared to various hosting Control Panel stats that include only the website traffic generated by websites.
