What do web hosts mean by stating ?monthly traffic??
The monthly web site traffic feature is usually known as information transfer or bandwidth as well, still all these terms refer to the same thing - how much content can be transferred to and from a cloud website hosting account. The web site traffic can be generated in two ways, the more visible one being website visits. When somebody opens your web site, their Internet browser requests and downloads the web pages from your hosting server and then shows them on their end. The more website visitors you have, the more outgoing traffic is produced from your hosting account. Considering that this particular characteristic contains the whole web site traffic, not only your website visits, you should not forget that incoming traffic is measured as well. This means that web site content along with other files that you upload to your account via a file manager or an FTP program are counted towards your account quota. The transfer is generally checked monthly and the counter resets on the first day of each and every month regardless of your actual date of signup.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Website Hosting
All of our cloud website hosting
were created with the notion to handle the website traffic produced by any website that can exist in such an account. In case you currently have one or a few different small or medium-sized sites, you won't be limited by the monthly traffic allowance whatever the content you have - plain text or perhaps a great number of images, for instance. The stats inside the hosting Control Panel gives you elaborate details about the website traffic produced by each site as well as the total amount for your account as a whole. The statistics are updated in real time and display both the daily and the monthly usage, so that you will know how much information is transferred to and from your web hosting account anytime. The very first day of each and every month your counter is reset, but you'll be able to see the site traffic statistics for the past months, that will give you an idea how your websites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our semi-dedicated servers
are very powerful, we have made the decision not to set any restriction for the monthly website traffic that an account can generate. It is our understanding that if you obtain a web hosting plan that includes a lot of processing power, your sites will presumptively have lots of visitors and since each visitor produces a part of the site traffic, one may end up having unavailable sites in case there is some cap for this feature. With truly unlimited site traffic, you can be sure this will never happen. To save you time, you'll be able to monitor the information being downloaded and 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 web sites are. You'll be able to even see the web pages and files which have made most of the web site traffic in your semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
All of the VPS servers
that we provide have a monthly traffic quota proportionate to the system resources they come with. The more disk storage and processing power a server features, the more likely it is you'll host more websites on it, for that reason the traffic you will be able to use raises with every single plan. In case you need additional traffic at some time, you will be able to improve the package via your billing Control Panel with no more than a few mouse-clicks and the extra system resources, along with the upgraded traffic quota, will be added to your account. You will also be to keep track of what amount of data has been transferred to and from your virtual server at any time. For your benefit, we will notify you once you get to 90% of the allowance to give you enough time to take action and decrease your site traffic or update your package if needed. In your control panel, you'll be able to see the traffic statistics for each individual domain or subdomain in your VPS account.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
Using a dedicated server
, you'll have an extremely powerful web hosting system at your disposal and the website traffic quota you will get suits the rest of the characteristics. The server will be able to make terabytes of traffic each month, therefore regardless of the type or number of web sites that you host, you will never need to worry about them being not available because of not sufficient traffic. To be on the safe side however, we'll give you the opportunity to improve this feature if required. We will inform you well in advance when you get close to the restriction, so that you'll have the time to update or decrease the site traffic by optimizing your info and avoid any interruption of the work of your web sites. You are able to keep track of the consumed and remaining traffic for the current month through the management panel that we provide. The data there features all of the incoming as well as all the outgoing transfers, which includes software installations and / or updates. In comparison, a hosting Control Panel can give more detailed info, however only for the site traffic to and from a web hosting account, not your server altogether.
