Every time some content is uploaded to a website hosting account or downloaded from it, some traffic is generated and that is an aspect that each hosting plan has. It is moreover among the features you have to check out, as what amount of website traffic allowance you will need depends upon the things you need the account for. The traffic is mainly produced by downloads which includes website visits. Basically, when someone goes to your website, the pages are downloaded from the server to his or her computer and they're afterwards displayed by their internet browser. It is of course recommendable to be aware that uploads count too, so whenever you duplicate larger files from your computer to the server, some website traffic will be generated as well. Different companies sometimes have different names for this particular feature, for example traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, still all of them apply to the exact same thing - the exact amount of incoming & outgoing info generated for a period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Website Hosting
All of our Linux website hosting packages were created with the notion to take care of the site traffic made by any site that can run in such an account. If you own one or a couple of small-scale or medium-sized sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly site traffic allowance no matter what content you have - plain text and / or numerous images, for example. The stats inside the hosting Control Panel will give you in-depth data about the site traffic produced by each site along with the amount for the account as a whole. The statistics are updated live and show both the everyday and the monthly usage, which means that you will be aware of how much data is transferred to and from your hosting account anytime. The first day of each month your counter is reset, but you'll still be able to view the site traffic stats for the previous months, which will give you an idea how your web sites perform.
