The monthly traffic feature, that’s sometimes also called bandwidth or info transfer, indicates the full amount of info that can be uploaded to your shared web hosting account and downloaded from it each month. Your traffic is produced predominantly by web site visits - every time someone goes to your website, the pages they see are downloaded from your website hosting server to his or her machine or smartphone and they're displayed by the internet browser. What counts towards the web site traffic produced is the size of these pages, hence the more site visitors you get for some period of time, the more traffic will be generated. Along with the site visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer i.e. every time you upload site content or other files using a file manager or an FTP program, they'll also generate some site traffic. The counter resets on the very first day of each month and it is not related to the date you've registered or the date you've renewed the website hosting plan.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Web Hosting
All of our shared web hosting were designed with the idea to take care of the traffic produced by any type of site that can exist in such an account. If you currently have one or a couple of small or medium-sized websites, you'll not be limited by the monthly traffic allowance whatever the content you may have - plain text or lots of images, for example. The stats inside the hosting Control Panel will provide you with comprehensive info about the site traffic generated by every single web site as well as the amount for the account altogether. The figures are updated live and indicate both the everyday and the monthly usage, which means that you will know how much info is transferred to and from the hosting account at any time. The very first day of every month the counter is reset, but you'll still be able to view the traffic statistics for the past months, which will show you how your sites perform.
