The monthly traffic characteristic, which is sometimes also identified as bandwidth or data transfer, indicates the overall volume of data which is uploaded to your hosting account and downloaded from it each month. Your traffic is produced predominantly by site visits - whenever someone loads your web site, the web pages they see are downloaded from the website hosting server to his / her computer system or mobile device and they are displayed by the browser. What counts towards the traffic generated is the overall size of these webpages, hence the more site visitors you get for some period of time, the more traffic will be produced. In addition to the website visits, file uploads are also counted towards the entire monthly transfer i.e. when you upload web site content or other files using a file manager or an FTP software, they will also generate some website traffic. The counter resets on the very first day of each and every month and it's not related to the date you've signed up as well as the date you've renewed the web hosting plan.
Monthly Traffic in Hosting
All our hosting are designed with the concept to take care of the traffic generated by any kind of website that can exist in such an account. If you have one or several small-scale or medium-sized sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly traffic quota whatever the content you have - plain text and / or lots of images, for instance. The stats in your hosting Control Panel provides you with detailed data about the website traffic generated by each and every site and the amount for the account as a whole. The numbers are updated live and display both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, so you will be aware of how much data is transferred to and from your website hosting account at any time. Day one of each month your counter is reset, but you'll still be able to see the website traffic stats for the previous months, that will give you an idea how your websites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated servers are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any limit for the monthly traffic that a given account can generate. We consider that if you buy a website hosting package that includes a lot of processing power, your sites will most probably have a lot of visitors and given that each and every visitor makes some site traffic, you may end up with unavailable sites in case there was some limit for this particular characteristic. With truly unrestricted site traffic, you can be sure this will never happen. For your benefit, you will be able to keep track of the information being downloaded as well as the website traffic that is generated for each domain with monthly, daily and hourly stats that will inform you on how popular your websites are. You can even see particular webpages and files which have generated the most web site traffic in the semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
The monthly traffic allowance for our VPS servers is proportional to the rest of the server’s resources. When you aquire a more powerful server, it is much more likely that you will run a well-known website or even a number of sites, consequently you will have much more website visitors. Because of this, the higher package you obtain, the higher monthly site traffic allowance you'll have. We will let you know if you reach 90% of that amount, to make sure you have enough time to take some action and either upgrade the package or optimize your sites and lower the website traffic that they generate before the counter resets the next month. If you decide to upgrade, this can be done from the billing Control Panel and with no more than a few mouse-clicks. In addition, you'll be able to view how much website traffic your server has already generated and the amount that is left before you get to your monthly limit. This data will be available in the VPS control panel where you'll also be able to reboot your server and check out the usage of all other system resources like hard disk storage, CPU load and physical memory usage.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers that we offer feature enormous website traffic quotas that are enough for any kind of website, even a video streaming portal or a well-liked online community. Terabytes of traffic will be at your disposal every month and the management panel that is featured with each and every dedicated server will give you information how much information has been transferred already and what amount is available for the present month. To avoid service interruptions, we will let you know when you reach 90% of your allowance and you'll be able to either reduce the site traffic made by your web sites by optimizing their content, or you may increase the allowance for your account. It's very unlikely that you'll ever need such an upgrade, but we decided to leave this alternative open. The stats in that panel feature the total site traffic, in contrast to the info in your hosting Control Panel where you can view only the traffic from websites, but not from server-side software downloads and / or updates.
