The monthly traffic function is usually referred to as information transfer or bandwidth as well, but all of the aforementioned terms have to do with the same thing - what amount of information can be transferred to and from a cloud hosting account. The website traffic can be generated in just two ways, the more visible one being site visits. If somebody opens your site, their web browser requests and downloads the webpages from the web hosting server then shows them on their end. The more website visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is generated from your hosting account. As this particular feature includes the entire website traffic, not only your website visits, you should not forget that inward traffic is counted too. Which means web site content and various other files that you upload to the account via a file manager or an FTP software are counted towards your account quota. The transfer is usually checked per month and the counter resets on the first day of each and every month whatever your actual date of registration.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Hosting
All our Linux cloud plans
are designed with the idea to handle the traffic produced by any kind of web site that can run in such an account. In case you currently have one or a couple of small or medium-sized sites, you won't be limited by the monthly traffic allowance no matter what content you have - plain text and / or a great number of images, for instance. The stats in your hosting Control Panel will give you detailed data about the website traffic generated by each web site along with the total amount for your account altogether. The numbers are updated in real time and show both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, thus you will be aware of how much information is transferred to and from the hosting account anytime. The very first day of each month your counter is reset, but you'll be able to view the web site traffic stats for the previous months, that will inform you on how your sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our semi-dedicated plans
are really powerful, we've decided not to put any type of restriction for the monthly site traffic that a given account can generate. We consider that if you buy a hosting package that includes a great deal of computing power, your web sites will presumptively have numerous visitors and since every single visitor generates certain traffic, one could end up having inaccessible sites in case there is some restriction for this feature. With truly unrestricted website traffic, you can be sure this will never happen. For your convenience, you'll be able to monitor the information being downloaded along with the site traffic that is generated for every single domain with hourly, daily and monthly stats that will give you an idea how popular your websites are. You'll be able to even see unique web pages and files which have made the most web site traffic in your semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
The monthly traffic allowance that you will get with our Linux VPS plans
is enough for almost any web site and it's proportionate to the rest of the system resources that come with each and every package. With a more powerful server, you'll be able to manage a variety of web sites or a few popular web sites, which means that the site visitors allocation for the higher plans is also larger. When you select a low-end VPS plan, you can update whenever you want with a few clicks through your billing Control Panel and then the supplementary resources will be added to your existing account, along with the increased website traffic allowance. All of the VPS accounts are provided with a server management panel where you can monitor the used and remaining traffic for the current month as well as all other resources. We also send announcements when you reach 90% of the limit, so you have sufficient time to react and upgrade if necessary.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
Using a dedicated server
, you'll have a very efficient website hosting solution at your disposal and the traffic allowance that you will get matches all the other characteristics. The server will be able to make terabytes of site traffic every month, so regardless of the type or amount of web sites that you host, you'll never have to worry about them being unavailable due to inadequate traffic. To be on the safe side though, we'll give you the opportunity to update this feature if needed. We'll inform you well ahead of time if you get close to the limit, so you'll have the time to upgrade or decrease the site traffic by optimizing your content avoiding any disruption of the work of your sites. You can monitor the used and remaining site traffic for the current month via the control panel that we provide. The info there contains all the incoming as well as all of the outgoing transfers, like software setups and / or updates. In comparison, a hosting Control Panel offers more detailed info, but only for the traffic to and from a web hosting account, not your server altogether.
