The monthly traffic characteristic, that is at times also referred to as bandwidth or information transfer, refers to the total volume of data that can be uploaded to your shared hosting account and downloaded from it every month. Your website traffic is generated primarily by web site visits - when someone loads your web site, the pages they view are downloaded from your web hosting server to his or her computer or smartphone and they are shown by the internet browser. What counts for the traffic generated is the overall size of these web pages, therefore the more website visitors you have for a given period of time, the more site traffic will be produced. Along with the site visits, file uploads are also counted towards the entire monthly transfer this means that every time you upload website content or some other files with a file manager or an FTP application, they will also generate some traffic. The counter resets on the first day of each and every month and it is not related to the date you've registered and the date you have renewed your web hosting package.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
All our shared plans were created with the concept to take care of the traffic made by any type of site that can run in such an account. If you currently have one or multiple small or medium-sized web sites, you won't be limited by the monthly website traffic allowance no matter what content you have - plain text or perhaps numerous images, for example. The statistics inside the hosting Control Panel will give you detailed info about the website traffic generated by every single website and the total amount for the account altogether. The statistics are updated in real time and show both the daily and the monthly usage, thus you'll know how much information is transferred to and from your web hosting account at any moment. The very first day of each and every month the counter is reset, but you'll still be able to see the traffic stats for the previous months, which will give you an idea how your websites perform.
