Anytime any information is uploaded to a website hosting account or downloaded using it, website traffic is produced which is an attribute that each and every hosting plan includes. It is also among the characteristics you need to check, since how much traffic allowance you'll need depends upon the things you need the account for. The website traffic is primarily generated by downloads including site visits. In layman's terms, when someone opens your site, the pages are downloaded from the server to their computer system and they're subsequently shown by their web browser. It's of course important to be aware that uploads matter as well, so that if you back up larger files from your laptop or computer to the server, some website traffic will be generated too. Different companies sometimes have different names for this feature, like traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, however all of them apply to the same thing - the exact amount of incoming & outgoing info generated for a period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Website Hosting
All of our website hosting plans are designed with the notion to handle the website traffic produced by any website that can exist in such an account. When you have one or a number of small or medium-sized web sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly website traffic allowance regardless of what content you may have - plain text or perhaps a great number of images, for instance. The statistics in the hosting Control Panel gives you comprehensive data about the site traffic generated by each site as well as the amount for the account in general. The amounts are updated in real time and indicate both the everyday and the monthly usage, which means that you'll know how much info is transferred to and from your web hosting account anytime. The first day of each and every month the counter is reset, but you'll still be able to view the traffic statistics for the previous months, that will inform you on how your web sites perform.
