The monthly traffic feature is generally called info transfer or bandwidth as well, but all these terms refer to the same thing - what amount of data can be transferred to and from your shared website hosting account. The web site traffic can be produced in two ways, the more visible one being site visits. If someone loads your site, their Internet browser requests and downloads the pages from your web hosting server then shows them on their end. The more visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is produced from your hosting account. Because this particular feature contains the whole website traffic, not just the website visits, you shouldn't forget that incoming traffic is measured as well. Which means website content along with other files that you upload to the account with a file manager or an FTP application are counted towards your account allowance. The transfer is usually monitored every month and the counter resets on the very first day of every month regardless of your actual registration date.

Monthly Traffic in Shared Website Hosting

All of our shared website hosting plans were created with the notion to handle the website traffic generated by any kind of site that can run in such an account. In case you have one or a number of small-scale or medium-sized sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly website traffic quota irrespective of what content you have - plain text or perhaps plenty of images, for instance. The statistics inside the hosting Control Panel provides you with comprehensive data about the traffic produced by every single site and the total amount for the account in general. The statistics are updated in real time and indicate both the everyday and the monthly usage, so you'll be aware of how much data is transferred to and from your hosting account anytime. The very first day of every month the counter is reset, but you'll be able to see the website traffic stats for the previous months, that will show you how your sites perform.

Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers

Considering that our semi-dedicated plans are pretty powerful, we've made the decision not to set any limit for the monthly site traffic that a given account can produce. We consider that if you need a hosting package that features a great deal of processing power, your web sites will probably have a lot of visitors and as each visitor produces a part of the traffic, you can end up with unavailable sites if there was some cap for this particular characteristic. With truly unlimited website traffic, you can be sure this won't happen. For your benefit, you can monitor the data being downloaded along with the web site traffic that is generated for each domain with hourly, daily and monthly statistics that will inform you on how popular your sites are. You'll be able to even see individual pages and files that have made most of the traffic in the semi-dedicated account.

Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers

The monthly site traffic quota that you'll get with our VPS hosting plans is sufficient for almost any website and it is proportionate to all the rest of the system resources that are included with every plan. By using a more powerful server, you'll be able to manage a wide range of web sites or several popular sites, which means that the site visitors allowance for the higher packages is also higher. When you pick a low-end VPS plan, you'll be able to enhance it at any time with a few mouse-clicks from your billing Control Panel and then the supplementary resources will be included in your existing account, together with the added traffic quota. All the VPS accounts come preloaded with a server management panel where you can keep track of the used and remaining website traffic for the current month as well as all the other system resources. In addition, we send notifications any time you get to 90% of the limit, so you will have enough time to react and upgrade if needed.

Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers

With a dedicated server, you will have a very powerful hosting product at your disposal and the traffic quota you will get suits the rest of the features. The server can make terabytes of traffic each month, thus irrespective of the type or amount of web sites that you host, you will never need to worry about them being not available as a result of not sufficient website traffic. To be on the safe side however, we will give you the opportunity to update this feature if needed. We will notify you well in advance when you get close to the restriction, so you will have the option to upgrade or lower the website traffic by optimizing your info in order to avoid any interruption of the work of your sites. You are able to keep track of the used and remaining site traffic for the current month through the control panel that we provide. The data there includes all of the incoming & outgoing transfers, like software installations and / or updates. In contrast, a hosting Control Panel offers more detailed data, however only for the site traffic to and from a hosting account, not your server altogether.
