Find out what web hosting providers mean whenever they say ‘monthly traffic quotas’.
The monthly traffic characteristic, which is sometimes also called bandwidth or information transfer, refers to the overall volume of data that can be uploaded to your shared hosting account and downloaded from it each month. Your traffic is produced predominantly by site visits - when somebody visits your site, the pages they view are downloaded from your web hosting server to his or her computer system or smartphone and they're displayed by the browser. What counts for the web site traffic produced is the size of these webpages, consequently the more site visitors you get for a period of time, the more web site traffic will be generated. In addition to the site visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer which means that any time you upload site content or other files through a file manager or an FTP software, they'll also produce some traffic. The counter resets on the first day of every month and it's not related to the date you've subscribed and the date you've renewed your hosting plan.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Considering that our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
are really efficient, we've made the decision not to set any type of limit for the monthly web site traffic that a given account can generate. We consider that if you need a website hosting package that includes a great deal of computing power, your websites will probably have a lot of visitors and as every visitor generates some site traffic, one could end up getting unavailable websites if there was any cap for this particular feature. With truly unlimited website traffic, you can be sure this can never happen. For your convenience, you can keep track of the info being downloaded and the site traffic that is generated for every single domain with hourly, daily and monthly stats that will inform you on how popular your web sites are. You will be able to even see unique web pages and files that have made most of the website traffic in your semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The monthly site traffic quota that is featured with our dedicated server
packages is sufficient for any type of site irrespective of its type. Your web applications can generate terabytes of website traffic, which warrants that all of your visitors will never notice any sort of error message on your site resulting from inadequate allowance like it may happen with many other kinds of hosting. Also, we leave the option to upgrade your site traffic amount open, however it's very unlikely that you'll ever need it even if you would like to operate a file sharing site or a video streaming portal. The server administration Control Panel provides you with accurate live info how much data has been transmitted for the month to date, and what amount of it is left before you get to the cap. We will also inform you if you get to 90% of the quota so as to be on the safe side and avoid any downtime of your websites. The information in this panel contains the whole traffic, including software downloads, so that it's more precise than the one in your current web hosting Control Panel where you will be able to see details only about the visitors generated by web content.
