The monthly traffic feature is generally called information transfer or bandwidth as well, yet all of the aforementioned terms refer to the very same thing - the amount of information can be transferred to and from your shared hosting account. The web site traffic can be produced in two ways, the more apparent one being web site visits. When somebody opens your web site, their web browser requests and downloads the webpages from your web hosting server and then displays them on their end. The more site visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is produced from your website hosting account. As this particular feature contains the whole traffic, not only the website visits, you shouldn't forget that inward traffic is counted as well. Which means web site content and other files that you upload to the account via a file manager or an FTP application are counted towards the account allowance. Your transfer is generally monitored monthly and the counter resets on the very first day of each and every month whatever your actual date of signup.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
All of our Linux shared packages were designed with the notion to take care of the site traffic made by any site that can function in such an account. When you currently have one or a number of small-scale or medium-sized sites, you will not be limited by the monthly site traffic quota no matter what content you have - plain text and / or lots of images, for example. The statistics in your hosting Control Panel will provide you with comprehensive details about the website traffic generated by each site as well as the amount for your account in general. The statistics are updated live and show both the daily and the monthly usage, which means that you will be aware of how much info is transferred to and from your website hosting account at any moment. The first day of each month your counter is reset, but you'll be able to view the website traffic stats for the past months, that will inform you on how your websites perform.
