What do web hosts imply by saying ?monthly traffic??
Whenever some information is uploaded to a shared hosting account or downloaded using it, website traffic is generated and this is an aspect that each hosting package comes with. It is also among the features you have to take a look at, since the amount of site traffic quota you will need will depend on the things you need the account for. The website traffic is mostly generated by downloads which includes web site visits. In simple terms, when someone opens your site, the pages are downloaded from the server on his/her computer and they are afterwards shown by their internet browser. It's also important to be aware that uploads matter as well, therefore any time you copy bigger files from your pc to the server, some website traffic is generated too. Different providers often have different names for this specific feature, for instance traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, still they all apply to the exact same thing - the amount of incoming and outgoing data generated for a given period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
All of our shared plans
are designed with the idea to handle the site traffic generated by any kind of website that can function in such an account. When you have one or multiple small-scale or medium-sized websites, you'll not be limited by the monthly site traffic quota irrespective of what content you have - plain text and / or plenty of images, for instance. The stats inside your hosting Control Panel will give you in-depth information about the website traffic generated by every single web site as well as the total amount for the account altogether. The figures are updated live and display both the daily and the monthly usage, so that you will be aware of how much info is transferred to and from your web hosting account anytime. Day one of each and every month your counter is reset, but you will be able to view the traffic statistics for the previous months, that will inform you on how your sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated plans
are very efficient, we have made the decision not to put any kind of limit for the monthly traffic that an account can produce. We believe that if you need a website hosting package that features a great deal of computing power, your websites will most probably have lots of visitors and given that each and every visitor produces a part of the website traffic, you could end up getting unavailable sites in case there is some limit for this feature. With truly unrestricted website traffic, you will be sure this cannot happen. For your convenience, you'll be able to monitor the data being downloaded in addition to the web site traffic that is generated for every single domain with monthly, daily and hourly statistics that will inform you on how popular your web sites are. You will be able to even view particular pages and files that have produced most of the traffic in the semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
With each VPS server
plan that we offer, we provide a distinct monthly traffic quota that depends on how powerful the server is. Thus, we can keep the lower-end plans cheaper and give you a chance to choose the plan you really need in accordance with your budget plus your resource requirements. Updating from one plan to another is quite simple and takes only a couple of mouse-clicks in your VPS billing Control Panel, so that if you start to get more site visitors at some point soon so you need a higher traffic quota, you will be able to transfer to a superior plan anytime. We'll notify you in case you reach 90% of your monthly allowance, thus you will have sufficient time either to update or to optimize your web sites, to lower the outbound website traffic. Our VPS plans also include a server administration panel where you can see how much site traffic has already been used for the month and exactly how much is left until you get to the quota limit.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
The monthly traffic allowance that is featured with our dedicated server
packages will suit any type of web site irrespective of its type. Your web apps can produce terabytes of traffic, which ensures that your website visitors will never notice any type of error message on your web site as a consequence of limited allowance the way it can happen with various other forms of web hosting. We also leave the possibility to upgrade the traffic amount open, yet it's highly unlikely that you will ever need it even if you would like to host a file sharing site or a video streaming portal. The server administration Control Panel offers you accurate real-time info what amount of data has been transferred for the month to date, and what amount of it remains until you reach the cap. We will also contact you when you get to 90% of the allowance so as to be on the safe side and avoid any downtime of your web sites. The information in this panel includes the whole traffic, including software downloads, thus it is more accurate than the one in your current web hosting Control Panel where you'll be able to view details only about the visitors developed by online content.
