The monthly site traffic function is usually referred to as data transfer or bandwidth as well, but all these terms apply to the very same thing - how much info can be transferred to and from your cloud web hosting account. The website traffic can be produced in two ways, the more obvious one being site visits. If somebody opens your site, their Internet browser requests and downloads the web pages from the hosting server and then displays them on their end. The more site visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is generated from your hosting account. As this feature contains the entire site traffic, not just your website visits, you shouldn't forget that inward traffic is counted too. Which means website content and other files that you upload to your account through a file manager or an FTP application are counted towards the account allowance. The transfer is usually monitored every month and the counter resets on the very first day of every month regardless of your actual registration date.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Web Hosting
All of our cloud web hosting plans were designed with the notion to handle the traffic generated by any type of site that can function in such an account. In case you own one or a few different small or medium-sized websites, you won't be limited by the monthly site traffic allowance no matter what content you have - plain text and / or lots of images, for example. The statistics in your hosting Control Panel provides you with elaborate info about the site traffic produced by each web site and the total amount for your account as a whole. The statistics are updated in real time and indicate both the everyday and the monthly usage, which means that you will know how much data is transferred to and from your web hosting account at any moment. The very first day of each month your counter is reset, but you will still be able to view the web site traffic stats for the previous months, that will show you how your web sites perform.
