Learn what web hosting providers imply when they say ‘monthly traffic quotas’.
The monthly website traffic characteristic is generally identified as data transfer or bandwidth as well, yet all of these names apply to the very same thing - the amount of data can be transferred to and from a shared website hosting account. The site traffic can be generated in two ways, the more obvious one being web site visits. When someone loads your site, their browser requests and downloads the webpages from the web hosting server and then displays them on their end. The more website visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is produced from your website hosting account. As this characteristic includes the total site traffic, not just the website visits, you should not forget that incoming traffic is measured as well. Which means that website content and various other files that you upload to your account via a file manager or an FTP application are measured towards your account allowance. The transfer is generally checked on a monthly basis and the counter resets on the first day of each and every month irrespective of your actual date of registration.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Website Hosting
Our Linux shared website hosting packages
were created with the concept to take care of the traffic generated by any website that can exist in such an account. When you have one or a few different small or medium-sized web sites, you won't be limited by the monthly traffic allowance regardless of what content you may have - plain text and / or numerous images, for example. The statistics in your hosting Control Panel gives you comprehensive data about the site traffic generated by each and every web site and the total amount for your account altogether. The numbers are updated live and show both the daily and the monthly usage, so you will be aware of how much data is transferred to and from the website hosting account anytime. Day one of every month the counter is reset, but you'll be able to see the traffic statistics for the previous months, which will inform you on how your web sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any kind of limit for the monthly site traffic that a given account can produce. It is our understanding that if you buy a website hosting plan that includes a great deal of processing power, your sites will most probably have plenty of visitors and as every single visitor generates some site traffic, you could end up having inaccessible web sites if there is a limit for this particular feature. With truly unlimited traffic, you will be sure this won't happen. To save you time, you can monitor the information being downloaded and the traffic that is generated for each domain with monthly, daily and hourly numbers that will inform you on how popular your websites are. You can even view individual web pages and files which have produced the most site traffic in the semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that we offer you come with enormous website traffic allowances that are sufficient for any kind of website, even a video streaming portal or a preferred online social network. Terabytes of site traffic will be available to you every month and the administration panel that is featured with each and every dedicated server will give you info how much data has been transferred already and how much is left for the current month. In order to avoid service interruptions, we'll inform you if you reach 90% of the quota and you can either lower the site traffic made by your websites by optimizing their content, or you may increase the quota for your account. It's extremely unlikely that you'll ever need such an improvement, but we prefer to leave this alternative open. The statistics in that panel include the total traffic, in contrast to the statistics in your hosting Control Panel where you can find only the traffic from web sites, but not from server-side software downloads & updates.
