What do web hosts mean by stating ?monthly traffic??
Whenever any information is uploaded to a website hosting account or downloaded from it, website traffic is produced which is an attribute that each hosting plan comes with. It's also one of the attributes it is important to take a look at, as the amount of site traffic quota you'll need is dependent upon what exactly you need the account for. The traffic is mostly produced by downloads which includes website visits. In layman's terms, whenever someone goes to your web site, the web pages are downloaded from the server on his or her computer and they're subsequently displayed by their web browser. It is also important to be aware that uploads are considered too, hence when you back up large files from your pc to the server, some site traffic is generated too. Different suppliers may have different names for this particular feature, for example traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, however all of them apply to the same thing - the exact amount of incoming & outgoing information produced for a given period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Website Hosting
All our website hosting
are designed with the concept to take care of the site traffic generated by any type of website that can function in such an account. If you currently have one or a couple of small-scale or medium-sized sites, you won't be limited by the monthly traffic allowance irrespective of what content you have - plain text or a lot of images, for example. The statistics in your hosting Control Panel will give you comprehensive information about the website traffic produced by each web site along with the total amount for your account as a whole. The numbers are updated live and show both the daily and the monthly usage, which means that you'll know how much information is transferred to and from your web hosting account anytime. Day one of each month the counter is reset, but you will be able to see the traffic statistics for the previous months, that will show you how your websites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering the fact that our semi-dedicated servers
are very effective, we have made the decision not to put any kind of restriction for the monthly site traffic that an account can generate. It is our understanding that if you purchase a web hosting plan that comes with a lot of processing power, your web sites will most probably have a lot of visitors and since each and every visitor makes some site traffic, you may end up with unavailable sites if there is a restriction for this feature. With truly unlimited website traffic, you can be sure this won't happen. For your convenience, you'll be able to monitor the info being downloaded along with the traffic that is generated for every single domain with monthly, daily and hourly stats that will give you an idea how popular your websites are. You'll be able to even view the pages and files which have made the most web site traffic in your semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
Taking into consideration how powerful all of our dedicated servers
are, the data transfer that you'll get every single month will be enough for any type of site whatever the amount of its visitors, even if you provide image or file hosting. You'll get an allowance of terabytes of site traffic each month and since you will not share the server with anybody else, that quota will be available just for your sites and web applications. We'll contact you when you get to 90% of your quota so you'll be able to react and either optimize your web sites to decrease the traffic they make, or extend the limit. It's highly unlikely that you may ever require more than what we will give you, however we won't stop the growth of your websites, therefore we leave the chance to add additional site traffic open. The dedicated server plans come with an administration panel where you'll be able to see what amount of traffic has been generated to date for the present month and what amount is left until you get to the cap. Considering that these figures include software setups as well as all updates, they are more clear as compared to numerous hosting Control Panel statistics that include only the site traffic generated by web sites.
