What do hosting providers mean by saying ?monthly traffic??
The monthly site traffic feature is generally called data transfer or bandwidth as well, however all these names apply to the very same thing - what amount of data can be transferred to and from your web hosting account. The web site traffic can be produced in two ways, the more visible one being website visits. If somebody goes to your site, their browser requests and downloads the web pages from your hosting server and then displays them on their end. The more website visitors you have, the more outgoing traffic is generated from your web hosting account. As this feature contains the total web site traffic, not only the site visits, you should not forget that incoming traffic is counted as well. This means web site content as well as other files that you upload to the account with a file manager or an FTP application are counted towards the account allowance. The transfer is generally checked every month and the counter resets on the first day of each month irrespective of your actual date of registration.
Monthly Traffic in Web Hosting
We've selected the attributes of our web hosting
packagesin such a way, in order to facilitate the success of any website hosted on our state-of-the-art cloud platform. The traffic that your account can produce is not an exception, that's why with a website hosting package from our company, you won't need to worry about the amount of content being transferred to and from your account at any time. You'll be able to host many small-scale and medium-sized sites and make sure that the monthly traffic quota won't be a problem for their progress. We also offer you elaborate monthly, daily and hourly stats which will give you additional info about the site traffic that a particular web site produces or what type of page/file is being downloaded the most and produces the most traffic. This kind of information will help you plan the management of your web sites and your marketing techniques better.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our semi-dedicated hosting plans
are pretty effective, we've made the decision not to set a limit for the monthly website traffic that a given account can produce. We consider that if you purchase a web hosting package that comes with a great deal of computing power, your sites will most likely have a lot of visitors and as each and every visitor generates certain website traffic, you may end up having unavailable sites if there is any cap for this feature. With truly unlimited traffic, you will be sure this will never happen. To save you time, you will be able to monitor the content being downloaded along with the traffic that is generated for each individual domain with monthly, daily and hourly numbers that will inform you on how popular your sites are. You can even view the web pages and files that have made most of the traffic in your semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
With each VPS server
plan that you can find here, we offer a distinct monthly website traffic allowance that will depend on how powerful your server is. In this way, we're able to keep the lower-end packages inexpensive and give you the possibility to select the plan you really need in accordance with your budget plus your resource needs. Updating from one plan to another is very simple and will take only a couple of clicks in your VPS billing Control Panel, consequently when you start to get more website visitors at some point so you need a higher site traffic quota, you'll be able to transfer to a greater package at any time. We will notify you when you reach 90% of your monthly allowance, thus you will have the required time either to update or to optimize your websites, in order to lower the outbound site traffic. The VPS plans also feature a server administration panel where you can see the amount of site traffic has already been used for the present month and what amount is left until you get to the allowance restriction.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
The monthly traffic quota that comes with our dedicated server
plans is more than enough for any type of site whatever its type. Your web apps can generate terabytes of website traffic, which guarantees that all of your website visitors will never see any error message on your site as a result of inadequate allowance like it can happen with various other types of website hosting. We also leave the option to upgrade your traffic amount open, but it's very unlikely that you'll ever need it even if you want to run a file sharing web site or a video streaming portal. The server management Control Panel offers you correct live information what amount of data has been transferred for the month so far, and what amount of it remains until you reach the cap. We'll also notify you any time you get to 90% of the quota in order to be on the safe side and prevent any downtime of your sites. The info in this panel includes the whole traffic, including software downloads, so it is more accurate than the one in your current hosting Control Panel where you're able to view details only about the customers developed by online content.
